Currently we have a DLINK DIR-130 router and I want to replace it with a ASUS N12 running Shibby v115. On the DLINK router it has an option under the PPPOE configuration to specify the static IP address provided by the ISP. Under Tomato I can't find the same type option. Is there a switch I can add to the options box our do I need to script the changing of the IP as part of the WAN UP script?
Can you try something out? Just dial-out using tomato and see if your provider assigns you an IP itself. Usually , the provider pushes the static IP address itself. If no then you can dial-out using PPPoE and assign the IP address manually too using ifconfig and add a route for that WAN interface. In my case its vlan1 so i will give you an example :
ifconfig vlan1 192.168.200.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 ( assigns the IP to vlan1 )
route add default gw 192.168.200.1 vlan1 ( changes the default gateway IP for your WAN)
echo nameserver 126.96.36.199 > /etc/resolv.conf ( adds google DNS to your DNS config )
Worth a shot eh? Try it. Wont take more than 10 minutes of your time.
Have a good one.
