It has an option to enable one of the Ethernet Ports as the WAN which is what I have done and connected an ethernet cable from eth1 to the Wan port.
Make this a network port, not a wan. Have all ports as lan, no dhcp, no gateway or whatever enabled.
In simple words: it shall behave as a switch with a wireless access point. All the work will be done by lmce (dhcp, routing, firewall, etc.....)

If your router, or any other device on the network (connected eth1) has DHCP on, that is probably your issue.
I never quit... I just ping out.

ok so i think i cant use the router as just a switch with a wireless accesss point :-( i turned the wan port off, so now all ports are lan and disables dchp... The windows pc gets a proper ip address and gateway when i run ipconfig.. However the only issue is when tryin to run a web page it redirects to the routers diagnostics page :-( so so close.!! Thanks for the comments

See if you have the a choice disable the gateway. Please inform the brand and model.... maybe i can get it's manual and see what is to be done.

Do you think this is the issue? If so it looks like the last step we need to get it working!

The router has NAT enabled. disable that, and you should be clear... however the routers firewall is tied up in the NAT... not a huge deal if you are firewalled before hitting eth0.

And there is your problem.  Undo that, make sure the DHCP is turned off and connect the core's eth1 to a normal LAN port.
