Ervin - 

  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.

I cannot access the AP connected at OPT1 from a PC connected from LAN. I 
want to do this so I can administer Linksys AP's settings from an admin PC 
connected under LAN.

LAN has address 192.168.101.x / <>
OPT1 has address 192.168.100.x / <>

Linksys APs are at WDS mode with consecutive Static IPs of<>and <>

I can access the Linksys APs from WLAN clients (OPT1) but i want to restrict

this from happening, instead LAN clients should be the one to administer the


How can I do this?

Thank you for any help you can extend!
