Re: PPTP Link doesn't work between MT router & Windows-XP

Firstly there are plenty of examples on the wiki, online manual and here in the forum; you just need to take the time to search.

Re: Wlan and local LAN on the same SubNetwork.

You're in luck as there is a simple solution to this; 1. remove all IP address from the ether3 and wlan interfaces 2. make sure your bridge has the ether3 and wlan ports as part of it 3. create a new IP address for the bridge, say 192.168.5.1/24 4. configure the DHCP to work on the bridge interface ...

A couple of my clients often get confused with which interface to use when creating a firewall rule. What's the easiest way to remember which is which?

Why is there a difference?

It would seem a lot easier to simply allow requests from the wireless network to bypass the LAN-X proxy server.
