I've stayed tens of nights now and already have a headache.
No instructions concern the setup as a wireless AP without a LAN connection.
Please relieve me of the headache and give me a step by step guide.
I want the device in the garden to act as an AP with the same SSID as the router. I just want to extend the range.
The wording was a little exaggerated. But you know what I mean. I want to set up OpenWRT to work as a wireless repeater. Without, as I said, a LAN cable.
My normal WiFi is 192.168.2.xx
Do I now have to change the static IP to 192.168.1.xx in the LAN config?
But gateway address from the router? 192.168.2.1?
I've gone through the instructions.
the repeater is in the wlan and i no longer need a cable to configure it.
but nothing connects to the device. it's just in the wifi.
that's only half what i wanted.
what are the settings that connect the clients?
that is from the flagged repeater.
My router is a normal Fritzbox 7590.
I entered another ssid(OpenWRT) to test.
Can I enter the same SSID as on my router so that the devices automatically "dial in " to the Openwrt?
I only have 50mbit (with Iphone) over 2.4GHZ, if I switch to the 5GHZ of the router I am at 460mbit (Respect )
What do I have to set to also use the 5GHZ with OpenWRT as a repeater/AP?
So far everything has been running over 2.4GHZ, so I didn't want to break anything in the settings.
It's going really well so far. E.g. Shellys that were hard to reach are now connected to the OpenWRT repeater.
But I get, in contrast to the normal AVM3000, no 5GHZ connection. It doesn't show an SSID.
The router is 10m away with a house wall in between.
Without WRT the repeater had found my router. Can I tweak any settings?
Going into the system like that is too complicated for me as a beginner.
3 devices are now connected.
I find it weird as I thought the range from overclocking was so high that it would connect the majority of my devices.
When I scan the 5GHZ network I get no results. And I find that really intense.
Even with the original software from AVM, he found my router with 5GHZ.
I'll leave it like that for now and not pursue the project any further.
I am determined to continue using original software.
