Please i'm trying to figure out what to select on the configuration of my box: under dhcp server>used domain option i can select wan or wlan/lan.
What can you tell me about the difference of having a wan or wlan/lan domain?
I have also an option for macupd.
I couldnt find much about these two, what are they aplication in a network?
Thanks

Well, it would be very helpful to know the router type/fw/fw-version and which howto aso was used.

Anyhow: WAN=wide area network=internet
LAN=local area network=your network
WLAN=wireless........

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WLAN

And what is a domain?
It is just the name of the network. A network address is for instance 192.168.1.2, but as you know there are billions of internet addresses.
Nobody would be able to know the addresses - hence, names are used
instead (like www.google.com), but your browser is asking the DNS (domain name system) server for the network address when you want see a web-site.
see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name_system


For macupd: maybe you use DD-WRT, then it would be better to use the ddwrt forum.
Just a hint for what macupd is used: http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/rflow.php
