Can Tomato use Wifi as WAN and LAN?

    I have a little travel router, an Asus WL-330GE. It is supported by Shibby and runs fine with it.

    The stock Asus firmware for this router had a neat feature that let the router use an existing Wifi network (say, from a hotel) as the WAN, and then provided a separate Wifi network for my devices, with full NAT and routing. So, I could pay the hotel for one connection and use my laptop, phone, tablet, etc. simultaneously with it.

    Is this possible in Tomato?

    Use 2.4G as client and 5G as AP, I think possible

    Currently, doubt that its possible with tomato, you would need a 'repeater' mode like dd-wrt has which tomato does not have.
  4. Yep, that's how it's done. ;) Set one radio as client and then the other as AP. Tried that a week ago and it worked.

    I'm talking about using one radio. The router in question is just a simple 802.11g, single band router. It works fine with the Asus firmware.

    This. If you could find the commands that repeater mode does you may be able to do it manually.

    Note that regular repeater mode in dd-wrt is broken for K26 builds.
