I have a question about setting up a wireless ethernet bridge using an Asus WL-520gU flashed with Tomato as the client router. My primary router is an Asus RT-N13u running stock firmware with an IP of 192.168.1.1 and a DHCP pool of 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.149. I set the IP of the client router to 192.168.1.11 so that I'd be able to have admin access to client router when connected to the primary router and also use the client router as a wireless print server. Everything works-all my devices can wirelessly connect to the network/internet and I can even print-all when connected to the primary router. The problem is that I keep getting messages on my macbook notifying me that there's an IP conflict (i.e. another device on the network is using the IP). I can still print/connect to the network with the IP conflict, but I'm getting annoyed with the message and I'd like to have things set up properly. When I look at the wireless clients on the primary router, I do indeed see that the macbook is occupying a lot of the IPs in the DHCP pool. Interestingly, I don't get such a message with my computers running windows. Any ideas of the settings I should try to get things working without the IP conflict? Should I set the client IP to something I can't access from the primary router (i.e. 192.168.0.1 or something like that)? Would I still be able to use the client as a print server in that case? I should note that without the tomato router in place, I don't get such IP conflicts.
Thanks for the help!
