I installed OpenwRT on my tp-link tl-wr1043nd router. It works fine.

I'm just wondering how I can bridge the WAN and LAN ports.

So: any user (ethernet or wireless) connecting to this router SHOULD get an ip from the server on the WAN port.

It does all the routing.

Having said that, I do not want this router to be "ip-less", unaccesible.

I've read a few ideas on how to solve this (http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/recipes/dumbap) but to me, this seems as it would make the router into a switch that you can't access. Correct?
