You do not want to plug the wired subnet into your home network without disabling the "dnsmasq" service. This is a DHCP and DNS server and if you have two on your network then when another computer tries to get an IP, there's no telling who it will get it from and then you'll have all sorts of networking headaches.
You also should not bridge the lan and wwan if you're going to put the wireless on your existing wifi while leaving the lan assigned to 192.168.200.x, because that's two subnets on the same device and OpenWrt doesn't like that.
Finally, you can't bridge the wwan to wan because that's explicitly disallowed (I'm not sure why but it was added upstream last year).
To attach the Linksys as a client to your existing wifi:
-- Start from a default config, changing one thing often changes multiple things so don't think you can work your way back to default unless you restore the config files.
-- Plug a network cable into the wired ports on the router, and the other end into your computer.
-- Connect to http://192.168.200.1
-- Go to the wireless configuration, enable the wireless, do a scan, then join your network, entering the security information needed.
-- Save and Apply.
-- It will say please wait and that won't ever go away so give it a minute then pull the power and restart. It should connect up to your wireless and you can find it by going to http://openwrt
-- Some fancy browsers will do a search engine search for "openwrt" if you don't include the http://
Also please start new topics when posting a new problem. This thread is 100 pages long and the networking config has been discussed probably 5 times but I can't find it because the thread is 100 pages long!
Thanks Bryan. I had the wireless configured as per your previous post but for some reason when I select the option under the avr firmware page for selecting from the online repository, I get an error, suggesting that the router is having trouble resolving the file repository address.
Also, I started a new thread for the flashing problem.
