I am not proficient with router firmware and settings at all. RT-N16 was working well as AP with ASUS firmware. That is, it was working but the wireless results were so bad that I still consider a hardware change might be in the future. Anyhow, I though switching to Tomato might give me a handle on the wireless performance. I succeeded in loading the Tomato firmware but the AP only sees the wireless part of the network and not the LAN. That means also that I cannot access the internet via the AP. What settings do I need to also see the LAN w/o getting in the way of the router attached to the cable modem? All hardware on the LAN and WLAN have fixed IPs. I have also not succeeded accessing the RT-N16 via telnet; it refuses to accept my password. No problem accessing Tomato via the browser. I need some helping suggestions on that issue too Thanks!
