first time install on WRT32X. I set my radio as LAN, set up name and password and saved changes. I can see the wireless network on all my devices, I connect to it but thats as far as it goes. I try accessing websites and does not work. Any help appreciated, trying to get up and running.
And if you connect a device by cable, does it have Internet or not?
If not, does the router itself has Internet?
From here http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci/admin/network/diagnostics (if that's the IP of the router), try to ping openwrt.org and also ping 220.127.116.11
It wasn't accepting any connections even via ethernet. When I tried pinging id always get a "invalid" error message.
I figured it out tho, I was playing around with the DNS settings and I set the google public dns (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124) to WAN setting first. I noticed that now my WIFI was working on my phone, but I could not navigate hardwired on PC via the LAN. I messed with the LAN DNS also set as the google DNS.
Glad to say everything is now working fine, I ran wired and wireless test and my speeds are great.
In most cases, the default setup should work. You wouldn't normally need to setup DNS; ask what's needed from default config is setting up WAN to match your connection, turning on WFi (and setting its security), and yout should be good to go.
