Hi! Thank you in advance for your help. Almost total NOOB here in the world of TCP/IP and routers (but not windows or coputers). Here's what I have and want to do:
I have a cable modem and a DLink DIR-615 operating in normal router mode with DD-WRT firmware. I have a few 802.11g clients that I just don't want to bother upgrading to N. I just acquired a Cisco E3000 dual band router with USB port and want to run TomatoUSB on it. I have a couple of clients I want to connect via wired ethernet a distance away from the main (DIR-615) router, which also has wired clients connected to it. I want the new wired clients off the E3000 to have full network speed access to a hard drive connected to the E3000, and I want to connect one or two 802.11n clients to the E3000 with full network speed access to the USB hard drive.
So, I want to use the 2.4ghz radio in the E3000 to act as a gateway/bridge to the main router. All my 802.11g wireless clients will connect to the main router as well. Then I want to use the 5ghz radio and the wired ports in the E3000 to connect clients through the 2.4ghz to the main router.
This way I end up with full speed network access to the USB hard driver on the E3000 via the wired ports and 5ghz radio, and an 802.11g speed connection to the internet via the 2.4ghz radio and the main router, and I want all computers/printers on the entire network to be able to see each other.
Can this be done with TomatoUSB on the E3000? THANK YOU!
