    I have a very basic setup where my Asus WL-500W acts as a router for all my devices and connects them to the Internet. Basically everything just works with the default Tomato (Shibby) settings.

    However now I would like to assign another public IP address to one of my devices which connects via ethernet to the Asus. How to accomplish this? I would still like to connect to the device from the internal LAN so it should also have a private IP address. My ISP provides me with at least two public IPv4 addresses (DHCP).

    you can achieve that by Advanced -> VLAN -> pick one port an Bridge it to vlan2 instead of br0. On this port the device is excluded from your Network and directly connected to your WAN device/Gateway

    BUT: you will not be able to contact your local devices anymore despite you use tagged vlans (search for explanations online) or using 2 NICs in your end device
