putting a device "outside" of the router

    I'm thinking of using the tomato firmware on my router.

    I have to settop boxes that need to be outside of my network, because they need an IP from my ISP. Can I set tomato up in such a way that it can put those two utp ports outside of my home network so they can obtain an IP from my ISP and that all the rest (incl wifi) use another ip (so the router gets that IP and does his work for the other devices)

    And here is the otherwise part.. actually it works with static and dynamic IPs.. that particular config will move one lan port to the wan side..
    Code:
    vlan0hwname=et0
    vlan0ports=1 0 5*
    vlan1hwname=et0
    vlan1ports=2 3 4 5
    will set ports 4 and 3 to the wan side.

    Check out the entire thread and the links I posted therein.. it tells you a lot more about vlans, and there's a link to the port numbering page of dd-wrt (my router is a WRT54GL which has a different port numbering scheme than other wrt routers).
