    Hi all, I've just bought a Linksys E900 and flashed its firmware to Tomato (tomato-E900-NVRAM64K-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-117-Max). Now, I'm trying to config it to work in bridge mode - connects to a Telus Actiontec V1000H router, but when I cannot change the settings in the Basic/Network page because whenever I press save, it keeps saying: Cannot proceed: two or more LAN bridges have conflicting IP addresses or overlapping subnets.

    My host router (Actiontec V1000H) info:
    • Default Gateway:
    • Subnet mask :
    In the Basic/Network page of Tomato, I already changed the"
    • Wireless Mode to Wireless Ethernet Mode
    • SSID/Key same as host router's SSID
    • Check on the box Bridge WAN port to primary LAN(br0)
    However, I'm not sure about the LAN fields:[​IMG]

    So pls help me how to make this works. Sorry for my English.

    @googlebot : He already said he changed to WET (Wireless Ethernet Bridge).

    @Alexios : What's the LAN IP adress of the host router, maybe you are trying to use the same address? change Tomato IP to disable DHCP on Tomato, it should work... I think.
    I'm just making an assumption here, I know that's the way I use it and haven't done anything special...
    You can also use a virtual wireless to repeat the signal also (repeater) :)...
