    About 2 years ago the WAN port on my R7000 died. About a year and a half ago I managed to get Tomato 1.28.0000 -140 K26ARM USB AIO-64K installed, with the hopes of setting LAN1 to be the WAN port. I got busy with other things. I am an EE, but the VLAN and WAN settings are baffling me. Can anyone give me some guidance? Is there a Tomato manual anywhere? Also, does DHCP not work in Tomato? Here are some screenshots of what is set now:

    Just installed Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 -3.5-140 K26ARM USB AIO-64K as I saw vlan gui changes in the change log.

    Will this work? It seems to have changed the LAN port mapping though. Cable in port 1 shows as port 2, 2 is 3, 3 is 4, and 4 is WAN, I hope.
