    I have a Linksys E3000 running Shibby tomato-E3000USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-102-Big-VPN.bin

    I've got two virtual wireless interfaces (one with encryption, one open) and I've set up the OpenVPN client. When the VPN is not connected, everything is awesome. When I connect the VPN, however, my virtual wireless interfaces no longer have Internet connectivity.

    When I was running DD-WRT, it added default routes to all bridge interfaces so that when you connected a VPN, all clients regardless of the bridge could use it. I would like this same behaviour on Tomato, but I don't know how to accomplish it.

    Any ideas to get this working?

    Also, I would like to do some policy based routing to prevent certain clients on my main LAN from using the VPN when it's connected. Again, in DD-WRT this was as simple as adding the IP/netmask to the policy based routing section of the VPN client, which doesn't exist as an option in Tomato (so my guess is it has to be done manually, I just don't know where).

    Everything else about this firmware, for me anyhow, is head and shoulders above DD-WRT. If I can get this working that would be the cherry on top of the icing on the cake.
