I just wondering is Tomato have a DHCP forwarder functionality implemented?
Not built in, no, but there's a forwarder on my site.
I got it :)
Could you tell me how to upload and install this package in Tomato?
Well, it's not a package, it's a raw binary, largely intended for use by people experienced with Tomato/Linux. If you're looking for a packaged solution (and have a USB-enabled router), Optware is a slightly more user-friendly solution, but still command-line in nature.
If you can give me some information like what sort of router you have, what sort of storage is attached (and what the mountpoints are), and exactly what you're trying to achieve with dhcp-fwd (i.e. what VLAN are you trying to bridge DHCP traffic from/to, what the IP of the desired DHCP server is, general network topology), I can see if I can't guide you through some sort of manual solution. (You would, of course, have to do these same things even with Optware, since it's all text-based manual configuration outside of base Tomato.)
I'm using Linksys E3000 but for now i'm not using any storage devices. If is needed i will use flash disk.
As for DHCP forwarder… I have a primary router Linksys WRT54GS with Tomato 1.28 (192.168.36.1) on board and static DHCP server set on it. My Linksys E3000 (192.168.36.3) is secondary router. I want to connect E3000 by WAN port to WRT54GS so i must set the WAN port to act like a switch in E3000.
If you tell me how to configure this DHCP forwarder on E3000 than i will be very grateful.
OK, now I'm even more confused. It sounds like you don't need a forwarder, because that is intended to allow DHCP requests across disparate subnets.
If 192.168.36.1 is the DHCP server, and 192.168.36.3 isn't serving DHCP and is physically connected, why do you need a forwarder since they are on the same network? All you need is:
- Disable WAN on 192.168.36.3 and set "Use WAN port for LAN"
- Disable DHCP and DNS on 192.168.36.3, setting the upstream gateway and DNS server to 192.168.36.1
- Connect the WAN port on 192.168.36.3 to any LAN port of 192.168.36.1
You're basically looking to make 192.168.36.3 into a wired AP, which is pretty common and straightforward, unless I'm grossly misunderstanding your request.
Rodney please tell me, must i set the dynamic DNS IP address on secondary router to 192.168.36.1? Now i have "use wan ip address" which is 0.0.0.0 because the WAN port is disabled.
