I need to set up a wireless connection to my shop and don't want to use bridge mode.
If your AP enables WDS then you can use Tomato firmware as WDS repeater. More stable.
I was having a similar problem and used the guide over at http://www.myopenrouter.com/blog/entry/10354/Configure-WDS-with-Tomato-Firmware/ which helped me out. Seems that you need to make sure to set the WAN TYPE on router2 to "disable" and configure the IP of the default gateway with the one of router1 - this will allow you to set the static DNS IP(s) to those which router1 receives. If you are still having problems maybe getting yourself a new repeater is a good idea which works best with Tomato. I recommend checking out http://www.wifirepeaterreviews.com if your curious.
