Wireless Ethernet Bridging and Tomato by Shibby

    Just wanted to report my mostly positive results with Tomato and 3 linksys routers I've been re-flashing a lot lately. I have a problem though with a regular WRT54G and it not bridging wireless with WPA2. I read somewhere that regular Tomato 1.28 supports only WPA which I'm not willing to do. Right now it's back on DD-WRT until I find a tomato that it works with. Oddly enough, elsewhere in the house I have Tomato by Shibby bridging 5GHz wireless quite well on a Linksys E2500, connecting to a EA2700 with up to date cisco firmware using WPA2. I wanted to also say thanks to Shibby for this, because before I found this mod I initially struggled/failed to get a 5GHz bridge connection, and I'm really impressed with all the features and additions that are compiled together in his releases. I was right in the middle of a major research binge when I discovered earlier today a fresh build had been released, so I had to give it another shot on my last router running DD-WRT.

    So far I am unable to get WET/wireless ethernet bridging with the version "Tomato Firmware 1.28.0005 105 ND VPN" running on a WRT54GL v1.1

    I mainly wanted to inform, but if there are any requests for tests/troubleshooting I'd be glad to assist by reflashing or possibly trying to build it myself.

    I'm using some E2500 with Shibby Tomato 1.04, and then 1.08, and doing wireless ethernet bridging over 5Ghz, using WPA2-PSK(AES) as well. Works great! Except... I cannot seem to get IPv6 working over the bridge. I don't know if it's some sort of Tomato bug, limitation, or if I'm just not configuring things correctly. I thought that WEB worked at L2, and IPv6 is an L3 protocol (and IPv6 no longer uses ARP). So I don't know why this isn't working. I'm using the guide posted here:
