I am trying to add a port forward for my Pi running OpenWrt to my router which seems to be also running OpenWrt (although, a custom ISP image). My technicolor tg789vac v2 router (main router) no longer acknowledges the address of my single board computer. I am trying to put the address of the sbc in the router so I can port forward to it but after entering 10.1.1.* the address of the sbc is not in list of addresses to choose from.
Has anyone else had this problem before? If so did you manage to solve and if so how?
If I interpret the information in this article correctly, then it's not supported by OpenWrt at all. The vendor uses OpenWrt 15.05 has the base for his own firmware image, but that's it as far as OpenWrt support is concerned. We do not know what they have modified.
I figured out that I need to enter the MAC Address of the then assign an ip address to it. However, something is randomizing the MAC Address every time I reboot the pi.
I think I has figured out what is randomizing the MAC Address... OpenWrt! Going to "Network" -> "Wireless" -> (device name) -> "Edit" -> "Advanced" (under Interface Configuration) and manually entering a MAC Address then saving and applying seems to do the trick.
