    Is it possible to sever all connections between a single LAN computer and the WAN?

    go to the access restrictions tab.

    Create a rule for All Day and Everyday applying to the lan computer's mac address to block all internet access

    that would block all connections, but I just want to "cut" the current (active) connections

    Change the LAN ip temporarily, create the blocking rule by MAC, and then change the LAN ip back or keep using the new subnet. Turn off the DHCP server of course.

    umm 1 problem. The ip address wouldn't change until the client pc renews its lease if i'm not wrong.

    I found a utility called "cutter" that's an ipkg for OpenWRT, does tomato support the installation of ipkgs ?

    If you change the LAN ip of the router to a new subnet, I'd bet you a gallon of Tomato Juice that the client gets nuked. I don't think the OP is wanting to get that drastic because simply power cycling the router would accomplish the same thing. Carry On.........

    out of the box NO !
    If you need this feature than there is still OpenWRT.

    Keep in mind what Jon said: lean and simple :wink:

    YES you can add IPK packages manually, or, if you modify the firmware, can use ipk installer.

    For testing I manually install the binaries in a /cifs1 samba mount using SSH. This does not work well/easily for more complicated installs requiring libs, multiple dependancies etc. For permenant changes I add the new files to the firmware image.
