    Can someone point out all the things to change to let a second router act as just another wireless radio (specifically on Toastman's builds)? Edit: I think everything is working, but I would to make sure I didn't miss anything.

    So far I've got:
    • Disable WAN Port (by checking "Use WAN port for LAN")
    • Disable DHCP Server
    • Fill in correct IP addresses for Router, Gateway and DNS
    • Switch Router from "Gateway Mode" to "Router Mode"
    • Connect Ethernet: Main Router LAN1 <-> WAN Second Router (remember WAN is in LAN mode)

    Settings I'm unsure about on the Secondary Router:
    • DHCP Routes
    • Use internal DNS
    • NAT loopback
    • NAT target
    • All the "Tracking / NAT Helpers": FTP, GRE / PPTP, H.323, SIP, RTSP
    • Inbound Layer 7

    To add a 2nd WIFi radio (AP), you needn't use Tomato. But that's another story.

    I know, but it was already running Tomato from when it was my main router.
