I have a Linksys WRT54GS hanging off the OPT1 port on a Soekris 4801. I
had to bridge the OPT1 port to the LAN port to get it to work. But I did try
the separate subnets and did a static route between the two areas but when I
would submit it in the m0n0wall software, it would lock up the unit. So I
got frustrated and just bridged the two together. I have since also upgraded
the unit to 1.2b9 and it runs much better.
If you get it working let me know.
