Hi,


I hoping that someone with a bit of experience with Tomato will be able to help me set up my router correctly.

I'm running a NetComm ADSL modem running DHCP with an address range of 192.168.1.1/24

I've just brought a Linksys V2500 router and flashed it with v1.28 Tomato.

So far so good - unfortunately the DHCP for tomato is also 192.168.1.1/24 and I cannot seem to change it.

Ideally I figured i could run a 192.168.2.1/24 on my Tomato router - which I plan to run Astrill VPN on.

I assume to do this I must connect my ADSL modem to the WAN port of the V2500 and let the V2500 act as a DHCP server for my network?

Either way I havent been able to work out how to change the damn LAN settings without getting a "Invalid IP address or subnet mask (conflicts/overlaps with another LAN bridge)" error

Perhaps I'm missing something here - how do I change the IP address for the V2500 as it's obviously conflicting with my ADSL modem.

By the way - I also tried configuring my ADSL modem's DHCP to be 10.1.1.0/24 but it wouldnt have a bar of it.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Cheers

Mark.

Click on Basic
then Network

under lan change
Router IP Address to 192.168.2.1
and DHCP range to 192.168.2.10 - 192.168.2.50 (this will allow 40 hosts...)

I tried that just now - with the same error message.

There doesnt seem to be any easy way to change the routers IP address to 192.168.2.1

I'm still connected to the router at 192.168.1.1.

MY ADSL modem is currently connected to the WAN port of the V2500 router and has been asigned 192.168.1.3 from the ADSL modem's DHCP server.

Is there a setting in Tomato somewhere that sets the Router's IP address?

Cheers

Mark.

I'm sure you have probably already done this, but, have you restarted your modem just in case the changes need a restart to take effect?

Connect the ADSL modem directly to your PC and change it's IP address to 192.168.2.1.

Then connect your modem to the Linksys router WAN port.

Thanks guys.

I've found the issue.

You cannot modify the existing (bridge0) 192.168.1.1/24 IP address under Basic> Network in Tomato

You must DELETE the bridge 0 then ADD it with the new IP Address 192.168.2.1/24 as bridge 0.

The router then sees that the IP address as a Router IP address change - and reboots with the new settings.

I can then use the WAN port to map to my 192.168.1.x network.

I've also been able to load the VPN software and everything looks good.

Thanks again

regards

Mark.
