Wireless Bridge with Tomato

November 6, 2010 at 14:58:57
Specs: Windows 7
I have an Xbox that only can get an Open NAT when connected to my school's wireless network, and not their hardwired network. So I figured I would use my old WRT54G as a wireless bridge of some kind to connect my 360 to the school's wireless. I already flashed it with tomato. I have a couple of problems, however. My school's wireless uses WPA2-Enterprise with AES and the network authentication method is "SecureW2-EAP-TTLS", and I have to type in my netid and password there. I only have to type it in once on my laptop and it remembers it and connects automatically, so can I possibly do this with the router to have it connect automatically to that network? I'm not quite sure how to do it if it's possible.

Your router must be configured to run in repeater mode, so that it authenticates to the router of your school, like a computer.
In repeater mode configuration, you should be able, to give the SSID and the encryption key.

Okay, but how do I do that with SecureW2? I'm looking through my routers configuration and I set it to WPA2-Enterprise and AES but then it wants a Shared Key or something, I don't have that I only have my school's Net ID and password.

The net id is the SSID and the password is the shared key.

Hmm, i have a couple of problems still, 1. How does the router know which network to try and connect to, and 2. When I put it in Repeater or Repeater Bridge mode I can't choose WPA2-Enterprise as a security type.

WPA2-Enterprise is use only, if you have to authenticate to a radius server.
Try other WPA2 encryption.
