    Hey! I've just bought a D-Link router with ADSL-modem in the same box. It sucks, the configuration "website" crasches and it's really a mess. Now I have a server (that runs WWW, FTP and some SQL) in my network along with my clients. The problem is that from INSIDE the network, my clients cannot reach the websites handled by the server, instead the config stuff from my D-Link shows up. From outside the network my server works perfect. I'm now going to sell away that D-**** and I've looked on these two routers:
    the WRT150N
    and the WRVS4400N (EU)
    + separate modem

    and I wonder if these machines are well working and if somebody knows if I can reach my websites from my clients in the same network?

    unless you need Gigabit or Wireless N I would go for a WRT54GL and use 3rd party firmware like Tomato. You will get much better features with this and stability.

    I would like to upgrade to the pre-N "standard", so you don't have a clue if they work as I described? The Tomato-thing looks really interesting, but I've never tested third-part firmware before. Doest the Tomato work with pre-N on one of those routers I said?

    The tomate doesn't seem to work with so many routers... But PLEASE do somebody know if I can reach my server from my workstation via external addresses and IPs without the router configuration showing up with the WRT150N?

    Tomato has the WAN IP "NAT Loopback" function you want, but not N or your new hardware. Linksys firmware also has a variant in their stock firmware for the WRT54GL it is disabled using a "Filter Internet NAT Redirection" checkbox.

    I found a review that stated the WRT150N having NAT loopback, so my problem's solved and the router and a modem is already ordered :D
