I am going to try to explain this the best I can quickly. Alright. I am running my brand new WRT54GS v4 with the latest Beta 2 DD-WRT on a university network. I have it setup so that it is not broadcasting DHCP and Port 1 is up linked to the building. Thus, I am assigned IPs from the university's DHCP server and not my routers (as is university policy, as authentication is entirely MAC based). The university assigned me a 172.16.x.x address to use as my local IP address. The problem I am having is that the only way for me to access this router is by changing the settings on my computer to set the 172.16 address as the gateway and then assign my own static IP (temporarily). It is network policy that you can not use Static IPs (at least permanently). When I set my computer up like this then I can no longer access the internet. All the while, my WRT54GS does not have ANY connectivity to the outside network. I want to be able to use my router in AP Mode while still having a control panel & shell to log into... What do I do?
