tomato+bellbox

I am using this ever since I have Bell.

On the Tomato router, Basic | Network | WAN set to DHCP and manual MTU 1500
In Advanced | Routing
[fixed]192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 0 vlan1 (WAN)[/fixed] so you can connect to the modem from your network, saves a lot of cable connecting disconnecting when troubleshooting

Now on the bellbox side
Settings | Network
DHCP Enabled
Router IP 192.168.2.1
Mask 255.255.255.0
Range 192.168.2.10 to 192.168.2.20 (doesn't really matter how large is your DHCP pool because only the Tomato router will use it to get an address on its WAN port)
Make a DHCP reservation for your Tomato router using its MAC.
Set DMZ to enabled and to your Tomato WAN port IP

Wireless:
Disable everything. Especially WPS. You will use your Tomato wifi anyway so better shut the bellbox off, less microwaves in the air. Besides, reaver cracks open your bellbox wifi in minutes with WPS on.

Internet:
Put your bell credentials. Edit DNS if need be and set a hostname if you like.

Save + restart everything and you're good to go. Works for me.

Yeah, thats a basic way of doing it but actually, your doing double nating wich you could have problems down the road.. (i know that Voip is not to thrilled with double nating)

We used to be able to get a public IP on the personal router behind bell's router (using a bridged method). I'm not going to settle for less
