Here is the setup. a. One Asus RT-N12 D1 with latest Tomato by Toastman. It has access control as described in this post: all users have their MAC addresses in the static IP table and DHCP is issuing only one address 192.168.1.100 which has a rule in Access control to be always denied Internet access. b. A Zyxel NBG-146N router with stock firmware that has four operating modes: c. A desktop PC without wireless adapter. What I need is just to use Zyxel as a wireless adapter. What I did is put Zyxel MAC address into Tomato's static IP list and it connects just fine. I also put PC's LAN cart MAC into this list and it gets issued this address but no Internet access whatsoever, it can't even ping the Tomato router. (Zyxel can be pinged by other devices in the network) The only way I was able to get Internet access on PC is deleting it's MAC from static list so it gets issued the 192.168.1.100 IP and disabling access control rule for this IP. The funny thing - this IP (192.168.1.100) gets listed twice on the Device page - once with the Zyxel MAC and also with the PC's LAN card MAC and I have a hunch that is why it's working. Well, the question is can I get it to work as with other normal adapters? Am I missing something or trying to do the impossible? P. S. Zyxel didn't have any problems connecting to a wireless network with only WEP2-PSK as security measure.
