    Hi,
    I fight with this for days now. So, if anyone could help, I'd really appreciate ;)

    This is a schematic of my current setup:
    [​IMG]

    And this is what I'd like to setup:
    [​IMG]

    -The isp router is in router mode, and its dhcp is affecting ip to all devices on the network.
    -The Time capsule is in bridge mode, and its wireless access point is the only one active.
    -The wl-500gp has tomato firmware 1.28 and ad block scipt.

    Basically, I want all 3 routers on the same network, keep the time capsule as the access point for its wifi-n ability, and use the tomato router QoS and ad-blocker for all devices connected to the time capsule.

    So far, I never managed to get all these devices on the same network and get all functionalities at the same time.
    -If I use LAN ports only on the tomato router, every devices are on the same network but as WAN port is not connected QoS and ad block are not working.
    -if I change the isp router to bridge mode, I lose airplay and "bonjour" abilities to connect to the NAS.
    -if I keep the isp router in router mode, and use also the tomato router dhcp, all devices connected to the time capsule are on a second network, and same problem, I lose airplay and "bonjour" abilities to connect to the NAS.

    So is there a way to configure the tomato router in bridge mode (not the wireless ethernet bridge mode), connecting its WAN port but keeping dhcp on the isp router ?
    Or any other solution?
    Thanks !

    Hi,
    I'm still fighting but it still doesn't work.
    I've configured tomato router as follow:
    [​IMG]
    Ad-block and QoS are working great on 192.168.1.0 network, but I still can't access via "bonjour" to the main network, can't see any airplay device on the 192.168.0.0 network for example.
    I've tried to add mdns-repeater https://bitbucket.org/geekman/mdns-repeater/
    but it is the exact same result even if it is loaded:

    What am I doing wrong ? Any help appreciate!
    Thanks

    Have you tried ISP to the WAN on the Tomato and then connecting NAS Airplay and Time Capsule the LAN ports on Tomato? This will put all your devices on the same network while having the Tomato QoS, Ad-block and DHCP. Is there anything that needs to be connected to the ISP router? You can also put the WAN IP of the Tomato into the DMZ of the ISP router. If possible, you can put the ISP router into bridge mode and it will assign a public IP directly to the WAN port of the Tomato.

    If a moderator stops by, could he changes the title to (FIXED) Tomato, allow bonjour broadcast on two networks.

    @free2share: Thanks, but I made a mistake on the schematic, the NAS is actually on the ISP router. So If I just change the CPL connection, I'd still get the airplay problem.
    And when I've switched days ago the ISP router to bridge mode, I've still lost bonjour capacities (but I didn't try whith tomato in the DMZ)

    Anyways thanks, but yesterday I found the solution, every things rocks now.

    For those interested:
    - I kept tomato networks settings posted above.
    Main ISP router 192.168.0.0
    and Tomato router 192.168.1.0

    - I kept the mdns-repeater in wan up script

    - but I've changed multicast settings in "advanced" > "firewall"
    [​IMG]

    - And I added a trigger rule for port 5353
    [​IMG]
    So now QoS, ad-block and bonjour (airplay, afp, air printer,....) works on tomato networks :D
    I hope it will help someone else...

    If a moderator stops by, could he changes the title to (BROKEN) Tomato, allow bonjour broadcast on two networks.
    Sorry to modify that,months after, but I didn't manage to find another fix.

    In fact, it only seems to work, bonjour is broadcasted on both networks, BUT:
    - afp transfert between networks are slow as hell.
    - airplay between networks, doesn't actually play

    I still try to replace mdns-repeater by avahi, if anyone has a how to?....
    Thx
