Can I add WAN port to LAN bridge?

    Hi. I have bought better router hardware and plan to run m0n0wall, and use my GL box running Tomato as an AP. So I would like to add the WAN port to the switch. Can this be done via GUI? If it can't, can I brctl it? I know DD-WRT supports this feature, but I would really like to use Tomato if at all possible.

    Thank you.

    I assume you're talking about using the WAN port as an extra port on the routers switch (making it 5 ports instead of 4), so the answer is yes if you use 1.25 (at least). From the 1.25, it can be done from the GUI. You disable the WAN port from the Basic settings menu, a small checkbox will appear. Check this box (Use WAN port for LAN) and save.

    I'm running v1.23 and hadn't checked the changelog. (It clearly says Added option to use WAN port for LAN in Basic:Network. in v1.24).

    I'm sorry for my stupidity and thank you very much for your prompt response.
