Not sure this is the right place. Got a couple of RT3200s. Generally working great as APs.
Have a Drayton Wiser central heating hub that can't get an IP address when connecting through a RT3200 AP or, as I've just tested, directly to the RT3200 configured as a router.
tcpdump shows a DHCP discover packet from the hub and then an offer packet going back to the hub but no subsequent request from the hub.
Other devices all work fine. The difference between the Wiser hub and the other devices is that the hub requests a broadcast response in it's discover message whereas the other devices request / get a unicast response.
The hub can get an IP address from my old Netgear WNDR3700.
Any suggestions? I guess this could be a 21.02 vs 19.07 thing?
What's the latest regarding hooking these up together to form wireless mesh? Does it work? What is the simplest way to do this?
Also for cloning existing configuration to new router is there a way to download firmware with packages installed on existing system for flashing to new system? Like with the LuCi unattended sysupgrade can you request download of firmware rather than flash?
you can also clone the backuped config to other routers, but be aware, that if you use fixed ips for the interfaces, that you have to be sure, to which of the ones you are connected after applying the backup.
Since a week I've got similar issues with two clients. Setup is two dumb AP (e8450 and a RT3200) and a ISP router serving DNS and DHCP. Struggling with it for a week to find a setup which works. Then I finally set lan interface to explicitly set broadcast IP as it was greyed out in Luci. It is default perhaps but after applying things explicitly option broadcast xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx was added in /etc/config/network in then lan interface section and things are working as expected again. When I revert this change I can reproduce the issue again.
As you mentioned broadcast request it might be something similar
At first, I tried to select the file openwrt-mediatek-mt7622-linksys_e8450-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin as the update file for my router, that did nothing, then I tried using openwrt-mediatek-mt7622-linksys_e8450-initramfs-kernel.bin, and now my router is broken I think. Would someone please help me? I was going to use this, but the script didn't work.
I can connect to the router, but the internet doesn't work.I can't ping the address. On the router there is a flashing power light and the internet light isn't on at all. It worked before with the default software. I tried resetting it (holding the reset button for 20 seconds) and that did nothing. There is also the "Post OpenWrt "recovery mode" process" from the script I didn't use, I tried holding down both buttons for 49 seconds and nothing happened.

Software Version: Snapshot (I think)
I don't know how to do that, I will try to look up a guide or something.
Edit: is this assigning a local static IP? Is that what you mean? 220.127.116.11 is my public IP, is it also my private IP? I'm trying to use commands to see what my private IP address is and I can't figure it out, so maybe they are the same? But that seems really weird.
Edit: I found a guide to change it using ifconfig, but that command doesn't do anything on my PC, do I need to install a package or something?
inez has been getting help on Reddit as well but not sure if following through.
Did you set your IP to static as suggested inez?
As I said ethernet port may not be eth0, on my msys2 system on windows it's called enp2s0 for example. The screenshot you posted has a similar format to this which is why I mention it.
