Wahoo!!! Client-bridged with WPA-PSK AES

    Well, I have to say that I'm extremely pleased with DD-WRT (using the latest 4-23 release of v23SP1). For a year now, all I've ever wanted was to find a firmware that would let me configure it as a client-bridge (same subnet) using WPA-PSK AES security. One that would pass DHCP from my main router as well as all broadcasts. I've got a networked TiVo hooked up to it....

    Well, I've been trying to get Sveasoft firmware to work for this purpose for some time now. Alchemy works in client-routed on a different subnet, but then DHCP doesn't forward (obviously, as it's a different subnet), and the TiVo desktop software can't find the TiVo on the network (they require it to be on the same subnet). Never could get Talisman to work at all....

    So, today I finally decided to try DD-WRT. I have no idea why it took me so long to try it out other than my own stupidity.... Worked first try, easy as could be, windows network browsing works just fine across the bridge as does my TiVo. All set up with WPA-PSK AES encryption.

    Anyways, I know Brainslayer reads this forum, just wanted to say thanks for a great piece of software. My $20 Sveasoft subsription just got switched over to DD-WRT contributions.....
