    Hi everybody!

    I like Tomato a lot, but I have a small setup problem.

    I want to setup wireless client (station) mode on my WRT54GL. I read a very clear DD-WRT tutorial that I want to implement in Tomato firmware.

    I just can't locate the setup location for the "CLIENT network facing IP" (see Client - Step 3 - number 13).

    Does Tomato automatically set a client network IP when you setup "Wireless Client"? Or am I missing something here?

    "Wireless ethernet bridge" mode works perfectly BTW. I need client mode to redirect ports to an attached device, as my ISP blocks some crucial ports.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    They are simply saying that your WAN and LAN addresses must be in different subnets (which is correct). "CLIENT network facing IP" is what they are calling the "LAN Address".

    Welcome to Tomato !

    Thanks GeeTek! I thought it might be that, but I was confused because my WAN port isn't wired to anything so I thought I had to leave it alone. I get the point now! I'll try it out this evening.

    I did, but I didn't understand the mechanics behind it. I use static IP's on my gateway router anyway, so the DHCP WAN/internet setting got me confused.

    The DD-WRT tutorial was much clearer for me, as it also explains the gateway router setup.

    I actually find the DD-WRT tutorial/instructions much more cumbersome... and there need for WEP 64bit is not good enough. The Tomato video pointed to by the link in pharma's post is very good at showing how simple this feature is to enable with Tomato.
