AVM Repeater 3000 as AP (WIRELESS)

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.

wpad-wolfssl is installed

Thank you for the support

then it's not an AP, but a repeater, and there are

Before I read all this, just to understand, after setup I just need to connect the AVM device to power and put it in the garden and all clients in the area connect to it?

that's a client decision, some will, some won't.
some will be stupid, and still connect to the original wifi, even though the one
you just put up have better signal.

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?

Look at the pic in the link, it shows how the network will be set up in the process.

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?

They won't, just because it suddenly exists, try restarting one device, or two.

I just created a master with the 2.4 GHz network.
my iphone shows me the network and i can connect. the GUI shows me the IP address that the iphone otherwise has in the router.

is correct in this way?

is this that what i want?

If the screenshot is from the AVM, then yes, it looks good.

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?

You can use the same SSIDs, yes.

Made a test...WTF


it is a 400mbit glass fiber line

If you connect via cable to your main router (Fritzbox 7590), do you get same low throughput result?

First step would be to confirm, if the issues are purely limited to your wifi network.

Or connect a cable from a client device, to the AVM measure the speed from there.

I only have 50mbit (with Iphone) over 2.4GHZ, if I switch to the 5GHZ of the router I am at 460mbit (Respect :slight_smile: )
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?

  • can your client devices see the SSID, if they are closer to your repeater?
  • Have you been implementing https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/network/wifi/relay_configuration for 5 GHz too?
  • What do you mean, Shellys are connected, but then they can't see an SSID? How do you know they are connected then?
  • Is your repeater connected to your main router or not? That is a yes or no question. I am confused about "it's going really well so far"!

Maybe it's best to have a closer look at your config:

Please copy the output of the following commands and post it here using the "Preformatted text </> " button.

Remember to redact passwords, MAC addresses and any public IP addresses you may have:

cat /etc/config/network
cat /etc/config/wireless
cat /etc/config/dhcp
cat /etc/config/firewall


ubus call system board;
uci export network; uci export wireless;
uci export dhcp; uci export firewall

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.
