    i seemed to have figured out my first problem.

    i do have another question though.

    If i wanted to setup a my buffalo WHR-G54S and netgear WPN824 as bridge and router, respectively, what would be the correct way to do so?

    I don't want to run my router in wireless client mode. would i just set the two devices so they have different addresses but on the same subnet, then just change the my buffalo tomatoed router to bridge mode?
    would i be able to still access both web gui's this way?

    thanks for any information.

    Yes, leave the netgear as a regular wirless router. Then set the Tomato router as "Wireless Ethernet Bridge" to the SSID of the netgear and your Tomato LAN ports will be connected to the LAN of the netgear router.

    do i do anything special to the router IP address, subnet mask, ,or default gateway?

    I'll try to correct your terminology to be sure we understand each other. If your questions are about the Buffalo Tomato (your "CLient Bridge"), then, no. It can have any IP, DNS and / or gateway. It is simply a wireless and wired hub. Just keep it's address away from DHCP ranges or any other duplicates. I put mine on other subnets. If your question is about the actual router, then yes. They matter a lot.
