· I spent some time looking into "bridge mode" and "routing tables" before figuring out that the way to accomplish this is to configure the second router as an "access point". Here is a network diagram with the second router highlighted. Here are detailed instructions for configuring that router when it is running Tomato firmware by Shibby. These ...
In this section, you’ll learn how to setup a dual band router with Tomato firmware. A dual band router creates a separate wireless access point for each frequency band (2.4GHz and 5GHz). If you have a single-band router (2.4GHz only), you will have only one access point to configure. What’s so great about a dual band router?
Since this is a single band router (2.4GHz only), we need only to configure one wireless broadcast. If you have cable Internet service, simply follow the instructions below. If you have just flashed your router, you need to ensure that the previous firmware settings have been cleared from the NVRAM to avoid conflicts. To clear the NVRAM using the Tomato administration panel, login to the ...
· The prior DD-WRT guide we shared with you focuses on using the second DD-WRT powered router as a Wi-Fi repeater. Currently, Tomato (and it’s derivative TomatoUSB) do not include the specific software components necessary for a true Wi-Fi repeating mode. The network extension tool included in Tomato is known as Wireless Distribution System (WDS).
If you want to setup the router as an ap, what are you using to do the actual routing? I currently have the same router, running advanced tomato with three vLANs, so I'd be happy to offer specific advice, but mine is still setup as an aio router/ap. If you have a separate router, you'll have to configure the vLANs on the router, ap, and switch.
This tutorial will walk you through configuring IPVanish OpenVPN in Tomato firmware and will allow you to establish a permanent VPN tunnel from your router.

See Where do I download firmware? for links to both Kong and regular (Brainslayer) builds. Use the .chk file to flash from the OEM firmware GUI, then reset afterward: see below.
I am new to DD-wrt but have installed it on my Netgear 6400v2 router. (using K3_R6400v2_18-Aug-2017.chk and dd-wrt.v24-K3_AC_ARM_STD_128K.bin). Since installing I no longer have 5ghz capability and my connection is so weak (between 19/70 and 23/70) that it keeps dropping. I am using this as a second router. (connecting to the first router via ...
