I'm pretty sure this is possible, because the MLPPP version of Tomato is able to use the LAN ports to connect to the DSL modem for multi-linked MLPPP, but since the Asus RT-N16 does not work with the MLPPP build, how can this be done manually?
Basically, my DSL modem is in the basement along with the Asus RT-N16 + file server. There is a Cat5 wire going from the basement to the second floor switch and the desktops connect to that switch. The problem is that because the router is in the basement, wifi speeds are horrible upstairs where all the laptops are.
I want to move to RT-N16 upstairs and connect it to the DSL modem in the basement via the long Cat5 cable, but this would cut off access to the file server. I cannot move my DSL modem from the basement because that's where the phone line comes into the house and I need to maintain the best signal possible. I cannot move the file server because of noise issues. I cannot split the cat5 wire because I need gigabit file transfers.
So I need to assign a LAN IP to the RT-N16's WAN port while maintaining a working PPPoE connection through the same port. How can this be done through scripting/reconfiguring somehow?
Thanks in advance :)
