    Hello Everybody!

    I'm sharing my Internet connection with my neighbour and this went fine. But the problem is, that he can see all my smb shares and my complete network.

    He is connected to my wrt54g trough wlan with an own Acesspoint.

    No it would be glad if i can disconnect his subnet from mine. I already read that this would be able trough vlan.
    I also try to config it with dd-wrt, it works smooth, but is there any way to config this with tomato?
    Didn't want to change my firmware because im happy with it.

    So it would be great if anybody can help me,

    From what I've been reading, you cannot do that on Tomato. The best you can do is to put 1 ethernet port on its own VLAN (+ the WAN port), and bridge it to another router/AP to provide the wireless to your neighbor.

    OK, i solved the problem, it wasn't very easy but there is a why to disconnect the wlan from the rest of the lan and but both in their own subnet with dhcp running.

    If there are any interessts i can post a solution.

    Have modified the configuration according to the instructions, worked perfectly. The laptop receives a correct IP as in the script, but everything does not work anymore.

    In network connections, the laptop sends lots of packets, but not back.


    ping to and 1 19 now work.

    here the basic setup


    and the connenction br0


    and the DNS Script


    Thanks for your help, do not know where it jams.
