I'm fairly new to OpenWRT, but am finding thagt it works well for me. I've got some Meraki MR16 APs that I no longer want to pay Cisco large sums of money to use every year, so I've flashed OpenWRT on one and am setting it up to mirror the config I had on the Meraki.
I've got Radius authentication working and multiple SSIDs, with different authentication methods. There are 2 things I can't quite get my head round though.
- VLA1. N Tagging. I've read the Wiki page, but still can't quite work it out. All I want to do is tag traffic on a specific SSID with a particular VLAN ID, some SSIDs remain untagged. The downstream equipment then handles LAN segregation, DHCP, etc. It feels as if it should be simple, and I'm just being a bit slow, any help appreciated.
- Simultaneous 2.4 & 5GHz support. On the Meraki it appeared that the AP was running 2.4 & 5GHz simultaneously on a single SSID. From doing some reading, this may not really be true/possible. Is that what 802.11ac is about? If someone can set me straight on this I would again be grateful.
Thanks in advance to all those in the community who take the time to even read posts from clowns like me
