    hey guys,

    I am looking at adding a second router to my home setup to act as a Wireless bridge (excuse me if I get any terms wrong ;)).
    ATM I have an E4200v1 with Tomato Shibby on it - which works great.
    I get WiFi signal up in my bedroom (router is downstairs) but I have a Raspberry Pi running XBMC/Transmission and my current setup involves having my PC running to provide internet via a WiFi card/Network Bridge to a gigabit switch (which uses a lot of power and provides a whole lot of free heating, not desirable in Australia in summer).

    Essentially, I want to know if I can use an Asus RT-N15U with Tomato (shibby) running as a Wireless Bridge to the switch, as well as providing a WiFi signal to laptops/tablets/phones upstairs.

    Any advice would be excellent!

    ***EDIT*** - just wanted to add - I'm a uni student, so I'm looking for something reasonably well priced - no N66Us ;)

    the RT-N15U is good. Have one and i like it very much.

    Wireless Bridge should be no problem at all...

    Cool, thanks for that. Are you using tomato shibby? Saw it had experimental status, any clue about stability?

    Running shibby V104 without problems with OpenVPN Server, PPTP Server, Samba, FTP and more enabled :)

    "Only" 23 Days uptime, because i changed a few thing and needed a reboot.
