How to setup WDS on OpenWRT Kamikaze

Categories:

If you want to use WDS on your WRT54g router, or other OpenWRT Kamikaze router, you MUST use the 2.4 broadcom version. If you do not see the WDS mode as an option in your wireless radio settings, double check that you are not running the 2.6 version of OpenWRT. The 2.6 version of OpenWRT Kamikaze is not yet compatible with WDS.

    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Firewall and Port Forwarding in X-Wrt 8.09

Categories:

You might want to set up 'loopback forwarding' so that you can access your WAN IP as if you were not on the LAN. For instance, if you have a web server behind your X-Wrt router, and the incoming port 80 is forwarded from the router to your webserver. This allows computers on the WAN (that is, not on your local network) to view your website. However, if you try to view your website from behind the X-Wrt or OpenWrt router, you won't be able to see it. For this, you need loopback forwarding. This is because port 80 is forwarded only for WAN requests.
