comment Wireless Repeater with DD-WRT
One interesting problem, is that after switching to RB mode, even when connected via wire, the gateway became the ATT modem. The bridge became invisible as it's replicating the original router -- at least that's my understanding. So... how can I access the DD-WRT now? :) And is there a way to know, when connecting wirelessly, that I'm connecting to the ATT modem or the DD-WRT router? It works, I'm not complaining, just trying to understand. Thanks for all your help!!!

@hyperslug: Simply changing it to repeater bridge worked! Now I'm getting an IP from the 192.168.1.x subnet (not 192.168.1.x). Now if I can connect to it wirelessly I'd be all set. Thank you!!!

@John: I didn't see any MAC filtering options on DD-WRT that would be configured. Is there a specific place you're thinking about?

1) If I ping from the computer that's connected to DD-WRT router all the pings time out. Not sure what you mean with "reach an external IP." If I don't get a reply from ping I guess it doesn't, right? If I ping from DD-WRT interface it works (ping, i.e.) 2) The wireless router is on a 192.168.1.x subnet, I assigned a 192.168.2.x subnet for the DD-WRT router. When connected to DD-WRT I get a correct (I say) 192.168.2.108 (usually) IP. Thanks.
