I changed its IP address to one on my router's subnet, outside the DHCP range of my router. Then connected LAN2 to an ethernet port on my router and now have full access through my browser to its GUI, and telnet access for more detail from a command line window, plus Bald_Eagle1's graphing and logging scripts. (LAN1 obviously to the router WAN port as you say).
I haven't bothered with further tailoring apart from trying to tweak the noise margin. Which failed.
