I am new to networking and trying my best. I have a TP-Link Archer C7 V5 which I have successfully installed OpenWrt, set the root password, turned on wireless. I've plugged it into my internet source (starlink router) and I have no internet connection.
I've done some searching and reading and it seems to about the firewall settings or something with the IPv4 addresses?
I've set the router to have 192.168.2.1/24 as it's IPv4. Under interfaces LAN is green and WAN and WAN6 are red.
Sorry for being so uneducated on this! Hope someone is able to point me in the right direction.
My ISP is Starlink. I’ve tried to search the forums for how others have configured with Starlink but can’t seem to find any similar threads. I did read that my Starlink router is running OpenWRT. Do I need to put the starlink router in a bridge mode or remove it from the equation? It seems like some people remove it while others keep it in the mix.
Good to know about the colours for the LAN and WAN in the settings. Thanks again for the help.
Wow! Impressive troubleshooting! I had a bad connection on my Ethernet cable. I tried a new cable from the C7 and LED light came on and now the cable icon is with the WAN in the Network>Switch section.
