Here is the deal. Firstly. I am on cable internet. I have always used a wired connection. I know nothing about wireless at all. Reason why I am wanting to go wireless. I want to free up a couple 50ft ethernet wires. Here is how my network currently looks. Hardware Linksys CM100 cable modem Linksys BEFSR41 V4.0 with latest firmware Network Desktop (main pc using DHCP) Netbook (DHCP) Nintendo Wii (static ip and using port forwarding) Xbox 360 (static ip and using port forwarding) Directv for on demand (DHCP) The Netbook and Nintendo Wii would be the 2 going online wireless. Is running Tomato idiot proof? I have been reading on this before making a purchase. The info is over whelming. So much to learn. Any tips/suggestions would be great. As far as flashing with Tomato. I believe it goes like this from reading online. 1. Hook up cable from pc to port 1 on router. 2. Log in and set every thing to defaults 3. Log back in and flash with Tomato 4. After the flash is done. Continue and close browser 5. Hold reset button for 30 seconds and log back in 6. Configure to my needs 7. Shut down pc and hook things up to go online Is that all right? Also. For the gaming systems. If I assign them with static ip's. Will the NAT be Open? Currently I am having to use port forwarding with my router. Since UPnP and DMZ does not work properly. And 1 last thing. When installing the firmware and it is finished. Does it match the default settings of the Linksys firmware?
