I'm attempting to connect two separate Tomato routers together with a ethernet cat-5e link to allow traffic back and fourth between each network. I've done this before with two Sonicwall routers, but it was a ways back, and I googled my way through it. My attempts thus far have been unsuccessful with these two, despite similar searching online. Here is the setup:
Router 1: Linksys WRT54GL running Shibby 1.28
LAN IP: 192.168.0.1
WAN: ISP1 assigned
LAN Port 4: Connected to router 2
Router 2: Asus RT-N66R running Shibby 1.28
LAN IP: 192.168.1.1
WAN: ISP2 assigned
LAN Port 4: Connected to router 1
What I'm shooting for is the ability to ping from one subnet to the other, and obviously access network file shares and such from one subnet to the other. DHCP should NOT be able to pass through. Each network has a different ISP and WAN, and each network needs to continue to access internet through their respective side.
When I did this with the Sonicwall, I recall that on each router I assigned a LAN port an IP on the opposing network, then connected the two via patch cable. I then created routes to use those IPs as gateways when accessing the other subnet. Is there a way to do that with Tomato, or a better way that would achieve the same goal?
I'm pretty well stuck at the moment, so any help is much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
