    i'm testing tomato for few days and i had some problems. my first problem was slow surfing after 1 day of flash it, but than i changed max con to 4096 and established time to 7200. i cleared nvram also. now i'm waiting :)

    You could use value even lower than 7200. I like 1440 a lot better.

    Our cable modem @ work has an address of
    It is set up: Cable Modem > WAN WRT54GL
    I can navigate from our 129.168.2.x network to the address and configure the modem.

    I have a different modem @ home, it is, it plugs in to the WAN port on a WRT54GS and I can access it from my 192.168.123.x network using

    Am I missing something he is trying to do or is it his modem that doesn't let this work, it is just fine here.

    Cable modems don't generally tunnel through PPPoE whereas ADSL modems do. Since the PPPoE endpoint is at the router, the modem is a transparent part of the tunnel as is everything upto the other endpoint.

    So you tunnel from the router (or pc) through the modem directly to the ADSL provider? Makes sense your connection never sees the modem then.
    I think the last ADSL modem we had @ work I just plugged the WRT into and specified the public static IP we were provided, I never did configure the modem though. We did not use PPPoE on that modem AFAIK. Is there another kind of DSL available? It was specifically used for phone service at the time, but was unreliable so we switched to cable.
