I currently have two routers in my possession. A Cisco E2000 running Tomato firmware, and a Netgear WPN-824. I have the E2000 set to auto update my dynamic IP address and send the change to OpenDNS. I've got two computers, a printer, and a powerline adapter for my satellite receiver all connected to this router.
The problem is I want to use my old WPN-824 for something, but can't think if anything. It isn't supported by any third-party firmware. As far as I know, I can only use it as a bridge with another WPN-824, which is a drag. Could I possibly use it just as a switch, to "add" more LAN ports to my network?
