Problems with (Advanced)Tomato Wireless Client Mode

    Hi at all:

    I managed this task with dd-wrt but want to try out AdvancedTomato..

    This is what I did:
    1. change Advanced Settings/Virtual Wireless from Access Point to Client Mode
    2. change Advanced Settings/Routing Gateway to Router
    2. in Basic/network enter different ip-subnet with ip-adress from Router (not host)
    3 in Wireless Section change to Wireless Client, enter name of hostnetwork, right Channel (easy to identify by SCANning) and security options

    form this point there should be internet connection for wired clients like a laptop, right?
    ..but there isn't!
    In Status/Overview I can see that there is no WAN IP and connection.

    Am I missing something?
    After this task I planned to create a virtual Wireless network with encryption..
    Can I use the same Bridge for this or do I have to create a new one?

    Any help appreciated, working for hours on this..



    P.S.: The Router is an Asus RT-N18U

    The fact the WAN ip doesn't show anything suggest the wireless client isn't getting connected. But I'm also concerned about changing from Gateway mode to Router mode. The latter disables NAT. And that's only going to work if you add a static route to the primary router for the local IP network behind the second router. For the time being, I would leave it set as Gateway until you prove the wireless client gets connected and everything else works. IOW, make one change at a time, confirm it, and only then move on to the next change.

    Thx for your Reply!
    I tried changing to Gateway, but no success!
    I am not sure about the WAN (Basic/Network) settings either,
    i tried DHCP and disabled, nothing works..

    As long as the wireless client gets connected, you don't have to change anything as far as the WAN configuration. DHCP should be fine. Sounds to me like you're simply not getting that wireless connected.
