    Hi Folks, I'm trying to setup 2 linksys WRT54GL to use access point + WDS to no success. I have tomato version 1.17 runnign on both. I followed the instructions on the tomato firmware page for setting up WDS, http://www.polarcloud.com/tomatofaq#how_do_i_use_wds, but it still doesn't work. When I connect my laptop to the second router, I just get local access. Would anyone have any ideas what would be the problem?

    What I've trying to find is how do I change the default gateway on the second router, it just stays at 0.0.0.0. How can I change this or where?

    More info required, just let me know.

    Thanks.

    i have , 2 routers, no problems, only the pings break sometimes, the gateway is not important, important only the MAC Address

    You need to follow the instructions closely. The instructions for the second router ask you to set the WAN type to "Disabled." The Default Gateway setting will then be visible under LAN setup.

    Hi bigclaw, I discovered that I still had DHCP server on. But still no go to connecting to the internet when connected to the second router. My MAC addresses are correct, I entered both the wireless MACs on both routers.

    I'm stomped...
