Block LAN ports from each other?

    I'm not sure if this is a routing question or a Tomato question, or both.

    One of LAN ports on my Tomato will have a wifi hotspot plugged into it and I would like to block the hotspot from communicating with anything else on the internal network, and only allow it to go out through the WAN. How would I go about doing this? Is this a routing table config or access restriction?

    Thanks for your help! Tomato is really amazing. I can't believe how far 3rd party firmware has come since I last tried openWRT a few years ago. Great work!

    Sounds like you need firmware such as DD-WRT which can be configured to place individual ports on the switch built in to the router on different VLANs. I'm pretty sure that cannot be done in Tomato.

    DD-WRT would be the easier way to go, but it can also be done in tomato you just need to edit the config via the command line.
