    I'm using my WRT54GS as a wireless AP and I
    don't need the switched ports for wired lan access...

    How can I disable the bridge between the wireless
    and the wired segments ? My WRT54GS will be
    connected to a server which will do the bridging itself...

    Actually, this is to troubleshoot something.

    I'm not sure what you want to do. You can break the bridge from the GUI. Setup -> VLANs and change Wireless to NONE from LAN. However, how are you connecting to the server? You will also need iptables entries to block or allow traffic depending on what you are doing.

    It seems like you've asked two questions, both of which can be found in the VLAN page.

    First, it looks like you want to use the WAN port as an extra LAN port (giving you 5 LAN ports). If this is the case, go to the VLAN page and uncheck the VLAN1 box under 'W', then check the box for VLAN0 under 'W'.

    Second, it looks like you want to put the WLAN port on the same VLAN as your LAN ports. To do this, go to the VLAN page and scroll down to 'Wireless'. Select "LAN" from the dropdown menu.

    Don't forget to save settings after you're done.

    At least I THINK this will work for what you want to do. It's how I've got my network set up. I haven't tested out hitting other WLAN clients or other LAN clients from the WLAN, so I can't say for sure.
