    i've posted this on other topics but no i'm trying my luck here:

    i got a wrt54g router and everything that is not on my 192.168.1-net or loopback it's going on the default gateway, internet (pppoe).

    i want to access another network 169.254-net on the same interface (WAN) and still be able to browse the internet.

    how can i control this NATing? for exemple, i want some addresses to be deNATed...and some not.

    can i do this with this router?

    Not with the official firmware, one of the third party ones may have this feature.

    Why not stick a mini switch between the internet connection and WRT54G then anything that you don't want NATed can be plugged into that.

    you will have to use static routing, another option is to have a VPN connection but you will need a 2nd account from your ISP..

    @TazUk: i've flashed freeman 1.04 long time ago... :p

    @bluefish: i've used static routing, but i'm not sure if this is working...can you be more specific...

    i did this: route add -net netmask dev eth1.
    if i do #route i can see the static route added but still not workin'. i think that the dev device is not what it should be....
