I have been trying different configurations on OpenWrt and come across an error.
I can connect the AC Wireless as a Client to a Hotspot, then use the Wireless N to connect to the router and get my internet access.
However, it is not always reliable, so I thought I would try these three configs
- Wireless AC as Client with Wireless N as Access Point
- Wireless N as Client with Wireless AC as Access Point
- Wireless AC as Client with Wireless AC also as Access Point
So to be clear, the Client connects to the Hotspot and I connect to the Access Point.
Config 1 & 2 above both work, subject to environmental conditions.
However when I try config 3 it seems to stop the Client connecting and also displays some weird stuff
First of all I get this
I was connected to the router via Radio0 AC Wireless so it was Active, also if both radios were disabled as it says they are in the picture within blue box on the left how come both buttons within the blue box on right say disable, they should say enable.
Or if buttons on right say disable how can you disable something that has already been disabled!
Then when I do disable I get enable button on right
What is most important is that when I enable both the client does not make connection to the hotspot.
So is it that I either have to use one wifi radio for client and another for AP config or use a second AC router or am I missing something?
