I have a Linksys wrt1900acs v2 router running dd-wrt that will need to pass VPN to the cloud as well as internet traffic to/from the Linksys wifi and wired nets locally. I have a MAX BR1 that I am attempting to run in “bridged mode” (ip passthru) out the WAN port connecting to the Linksys “internet” port. I have yet to be able to get these two to talk to each other via the this connected setup, and it should work by all the info I have been able to dig up. Obviously I am doing something wrong.
So far I have disabled wifi and dhcp on the BR1 and set it to IP PASSTHRU mode with NAT turned off and IP forwarding turned on. The Linksys has DHCP turned on and I have its WAN connection set to DHCP(auto) - there is no Linksys wan IP and no traffic being passed to/from the BR1 and the internet. If I connect the two via ethernet ports there is routing to the internet but VPN does not work.
I need to get this figured out as it seems a simple thing to get to work but so far not having much luck. I need some definitive settings assistance on this one.
