Ok, so let me start off by telling you how my network is setup: Mainrouter: Linksys WRT54GS v2 with Tomato v 1.19 DHCP range is .100 - .109 for non DHCP static assignments Upstairs PC1(.111), PC2(.110) and 1 (out of 2) Xbox 360's(.126): Hardwired into Linksys -all three are using DHCP Static Assigned IP addresses -all three have no issues connecting to internet/Xbox Live Downstairs Netgear WGE101 Wireless Bridge (connection verified via Wifi!) -wired to that is my 2nd Xbox 360 with a Manually assigned IP (.125) and is set in the DMZ since I can't forward the same ports to two seperate IP's on the same network. Wii(.120) via Wifi and 2 other latops via Wifi(.112 and .113) -all DHCP static assigned IP's Here's the issue: The 2nd Xbox will say it connects to Xbox Live but it seems it only connects for a second and immediately disconnects. WHen I run the 'Test Xbox Live' tests, it passes with a moderate to open NAT. This setup worked at one time with the original Linksys FW! Now when I view the connected device list in the Tomato FW WITHOUT having the 2nd Xbox turne on, the bridge will show up with a WiFi signal indicator. Once the Xbox comes on, it's IP and MAC get the WiFI signal indicator. Is this normal? To my knowledge, wireless bridges aare supposed to be 'invisible' to the rest of the network - ie: you should not have to forward any ports to it, it should pass everything to what's behind it. Another weird thing, when I set the Bridge and the XBOX behind it to get an IP via DHCP, tomato will attempt to assign the same IP to both the bridge and the Xbox, which will cause the xbox live tests to fail at optaining an IP (which it definitely does not receive since the IP it shows is the generic 169.x.x.x that it assigns itself if there is no DHCP server). I have tried every combination i could think of to get this to work seemlessly. I even set the bridge in the DMZ - no go. Manual IP's for both the bridge and the xbox - no go. DHCP for both....no good. DHCP static IP's for both....see a pattern here? So I am at a loss....should I pony up for another WRT54GS, flash it with tomato and use it as the bridge? Would that work better than the WGE101? Any help would be appreciated.
