Setting up E2000 as hub/switch?

    I have been trying to setup my E2000 properly as a hub/switch with not so much luck so far. I'm pretty comfortable setting up computer type stuff and figuring out things with forums and whatnot, just this networking problem is getting way too frustrating. Right now I have it working, sort of. My setup currently is Telus modem -- E2000 (Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-140 K26 Max) -- two computers and tv.

    The computers and the tv have internet access, although it is about half-speed right now (90Mbps vs the 170Mbps I get if connected directly to the modem), which I would love to correct if possible as well. My main problem right now is that I use Plex Media Server to stream content within the house. It streams fine to the tv with the current setup, the problem is that my wireless Minix box in the bedroom cannot connect directly. So I'm pretty certain it's an issue with how the E2000 is currently setup.

    The Telus modem is currently at 192.168.1.254 and the E2000 is at 192.168.1.1

    i previously had a e2000 as AP/switch only. i've replaced it with an ea6300v1 also configured in the same way.
    i'm posting my network config page maybe it will help you

    Awesome. Do I use the same LAN Gateway and DNS numbers and do I leave the cables attached as they already are? Thanks.

    Use your modem as gateway and DNS i.e. 192.168.1.254
