We share internet with a friend wirelessly, and use a Buffalo WLAE-AG300N wireless bridge to connect to their NAT router. This part works fine.
1 lan cable from the Buffalo (Friend's NAT 192.168.1.x addresses) to the RT-N16's WAN port.
We also are in Canada, and prefer US entertainment, such as Hulu, Netflix, and Pandora. To do that, we have an ASUS RT-N16 running Tomato-USB Toastman builds… The RT-N16 is configured to use a PPTP VPN to a US account, and use that VPN IP as our WAN for our own NAT (192.168.128.x).
This works well, although the router occasionally goes to lala land with any Tomato based or DD-WRT based firmware we try. Suspect it's PPTP screwing up from time to time.
Anyway, the Buffalo has another ethernet port… And to configure the Buffalo, you need to go in via Ethernet (either port) with a static IP of 192.168.11.80 for your client, and reach the Buffalo at 192.168.11.100.
I thought by using the VLAN version (just tried v1.28.4405 MIPSR2-Toastman-VLAN-BETA K26 USB Ext) I could create br1, create vlan3, assign br1 and ethernet port 4 to it. Then add a route of 192.168.11.0 to 192.168.11.100 or 80… and I'd be able to access Buffalo configuration it from my lan machines. I think I am oversimplifying this, as it doesn't work.
Can anyone suggest how to get this desired result?
1) All my lan clients go out over PPTP WAN as gateway for everything but trying to reach 192.168.11.100?
2) How to make all the clients headed for 192.168.11.100 to *appear* as 192.168.11.80?
Thanks to any and all who can help. :)
