    How to allow cross subnet access with daisychained routers sharing single gateway

    Thanks for all the info. I am happy to update that, I am lot closer to the target access but not exactly there yet. I have disabled the firewall on the 2nd router and also disabled the TinyWall firewall on my workstation. As a result I can now resolve and connect all sources on the...

    How to allow cross subnet access with daisychained routers sharing single gateway

    I kind of figured static routing is the answer but I have no prior practice with static routing/IP tables. Any resource you can recommend to guide me. Good point on the second router firewall, I will turn it off. Questions: - Would it make things simpler to configure, if I don't attach anything...

    How to allow cross subnet access with daisychained routers sharing single gateway

    Have an overgrown home network with 30+ wired/wireless workstations, server components accessing multiple printers, media and file servers, 2 NAS, etc. Router 1 is the only gateway out to internet and Router 2 daisy chained into Router 1's LAN. Router 2 is a RT-66U Merlin firmware that has...

    How do I confirm that DNSCrypt is working?

    I am running shibby's "Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-110 K26 USB Mega-VPN" on a RTN16. Checked the "Use dnscrypt-proxy" box to enable DNSCrypt and changed both of my DNS servers to 127.0.0.1. When I run a test at dnsleaktest.com I get "we detected 0 DNS server listed below". This is...

    Question of hardware performance

    I am using merlin 30_2 on an RT-N66U and getting about 13Mb/sec over my 15Mb/sec connection with OpenVPN. Due to some missing features I wanted to try Tomato and loaded tomato 1.28.0005 109 ND VPN on an old WRT54GSV2 and tested the OpenVPN and to my complete surprise the performance really...

    Can't access my camera from outside once VPN activates

    Using merlin 3.0.0.4.372.30_2 on a RT-N66U. Have a FOSCAM camera on the network where I can access from outside through my phone. Setup works flawlessly as long as the VPN client is not running. As soon as the VPN client activates and gets a new IP from VPN, camera no longer accessible. I am...

    How to switch from merlin to tomato?

    I have merlin flashed on RT-N66U, got it working for OpenVPN but I have some issues so I would like to give tomato a shot. How do I go about flashing AIO64K tomato onto merlin? Is going through dd-wrt mini necessary in this case? Can I just go into firmware recovery mode of the router and then...

    Cascading 2 routers. Do I change anything?

    I had an unmodified NetGear 3700 for a while and functions without problems although I hate the inteface with a passion. I was using HMA on the PC as I needed and it was always a bit of a headache to remember to enable. Decided to go with a VPN on the router approach and got myself a RT-N66U...

    Need to decide between Asus RT-N16 and RT-N66U

    Looking to replace my stock running NetGear WNDR 3700. Need to decide between N16 and N66U unless you think there is something else that fits the bill better. - Hardware reliability and firmware stability is the first priority. - Would like to use Open VPN with DNSCrypt to secure all the...
