I installed openwrt on my accesspoints and I will soon be flashing my router with openwrt.
I am fairly new to networking.
According to the documentation there is a bug regarding ARP in the 802.11s protocol in openwrt.
It happens that my topology is such that the bug would affect my setup (see OG bugreport below).
So to create a mesh network I can't use 802.11s by itself. If I use b.a.t.m.a.n. , is it affected by the same bug? The documentation of b.a.t.m.a.n says that it is build on top of 802.11s, therefore I suspect it might be affected.
- Is B.a.t.m.a.n affected by the bug mentioned?
- If I have a central router with openwrt with multiple accesspoints: Do i need to configure b.a.t.m.a.n on all my devices or only on my router?
