Hi all,

I would like to pass ethernet frames trough a tunnel and back, i think this is possible with a L2TPv3 Psuedowire.

Let me clearify with a drawing that i have included.

So i have a Set-top box that gets a different ip-adress from my isp in order to connect to their internal network(dmz)

It does that by checking its ethernet ports for a specific mac-adress and request dhcp from their internal server (10.x.x.x) & gets a LAN ip adress on the same interface from the modem's DHCP.

Now what i want to achieve is, make it so that the tunnel is transparent for the device & modem.

In short, the modem needs to see the mac-adress of the Set-top box.

What i want or i think i need todo is bridge the tunnel interface with port 2 of my remote router and also connect it to my modem.

If needed i can do the same on my router so it's really transparent or so it would not confuse the set-top box.

MY SIDE:
Router : Linksys WRT1900ACS running ddwrt

Remote SIDE:
Router : TP-link TL-WR1043ND running ddwrt

If their are any questions please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Not sure how L2TPv3 Pseudowire fits into this picture given you're using dd-wrt. L2TPv3 Psuedowire sounds like nothing more than an ethernet bridge, something that is available using OpenVPN. I've done it myself many times when connecting my two homes. Sometimes I need remote access at the ethernet level rather than IP. And so I'll create a new VLAN and/or VAP (w/ no DHCP server of its own) and bind it to OpenVPN using a bridged (tap), site-to-site tunnel. And now any device plugged into that VLAN or using its wireless VAP has its DHCP requests sent over the tunnel and assigned by the remote DHCP server. And if you're DHCP server is using static leases, it can assign an IP based on the remote clients actual MAC address.
