    Is it possible to use a WRT54GL as a pure switch?

    My case is that i have sevral WAN-ips and want two different routers to have their own WAN-ip. Would this be possible using a WRT54GL infront of the two routers?

    Neat drawing of topology:

    it should be as long as you set up the WANs on each Router with Static IP addresses.

    The WAN ips cant be set static, they are assigned by dhcp by the isp.

    Maby i´ll buy that Linksys SD205 instead.
