    I have two WRT54G's. One has DD-WRT on it and the other tomato. I use WDS to share internet conntection between the two. DD-WRT is hard wires and tomato is wireless. For example, DD-WRT is IP of 192.168.1.x and tomato is 192.168.1.y. I would like to be able to access the second router from the outside with dyndns. I can get in the first router admin no problem. I would like to get in the second one from the outside also.

    I was told that I can do this with port forwarding but am unsure where exactly to do this.

    Also, if I wanted to access a PC on the second router (tomato) could I do it? DCHP is controlled by the DD-WRT one.

    Thanks for any information.

    I think what your are looking for is VPN (OpenVPN)

    On your tomato router, you have to enable remote access and choose a port for the remote access (default is probably 8080). Then port forward that port from the DD-WRT router to 192.168.1.y.

    You can do the same thing with the PC. Enable remote desktop, or install a third-party remote control app, then port forward the necessary port on the DD-WRT router to the PC's IP address.

    Happy holidays.

    hate to...

    I hate to ask to be spoon fed but....

    in dd-wrt I have port forwarding...

    I chose both, then port #8081 to 80, then put in the ip address of the tomato router.

    I chose 8081 because I use 80 to access the dd-wrt router.
    Do I have to enable remote access? NO I am guessing no since the first router is bouncing me to the second. Also, will this cause a problem with passwords? NOPE worked fine.

    I got this to work now, thanks for reading. I posted my results so someone else could learn.

    Thanks for the information.
