Hi there,

well, maybe I can talk to walls and someday the walls may talk back to 
me... The client doesn't even want to hear, what I'm saying... Maybe, I 
should buy another WRAP or other embedded router for them on my own 
costs... Another PC is not a good idea for them.

The WRT runs that DD-WRT firmware and connects as a client to my 
m0n0wall... On the clients side, there's a static route from their net 
to mine. Same on my side, but on disconnect and reconnect m0n0 "forgets" 
  how to route packets to the client and tries to route them over the 
WAN IF which's senseless...
