The article describes how to connect to the SUN2000 using wifi... you also need to connect to the Linksys 6500V2 using wifi? Like, the Linksys 6500V2 be client to both your current network and the SUN2000?
Since a STA can only connect to a single AP, you will need a device with two radios. It could be a dual-band router, with one band being client on each network, if that is possible in your setup. Or you could use a USB dongle.
If you manage to connect the RPi to the SUN2000 by wifi, and to your network by wire, you would not need anything else.
Otherwise, just connect the Linksys 6500V2 as client to your network using the 5GHz radio, and to the SUN2000 using the 2.4GHz radio. Then follow the instructions on the post, so you can reach the SUN2000 on the wireless IP address from the Linksys 6500V2.

Connect it to your ISP router via ethernet. This will change the IP to something in the router’s subnet range. e.g if your ISP’s router Ip is 192.168.1.1 then your OpenWrt's router IP will be 192.168.1.24 (anything in between 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.100)
Connect to your Huwaei Sun2000 inverter’s wifi as a client via 2.4Ghz radio.
Verify connectivity, Before continuing with the setup of the integration, you should test whether you can ping the inverter on 192.168.200.1. You can use one of the SSH/Terminal add-ons of HA, or use a terminal in the VSCode add-on.
Install this integration with HACS, or copy the contents of this repository into the custom_components/huawei_solar directory
Start the configuration flow:
Or: Go to Configuration -> Integrations and click the + Add Integration. Select Huawei Solar from the list
Choose whether you want to connect via serial or network connection. In this case we will choose network
Enter the IP address of your inverter (192.168.200.1). The slave id is typically 0. You should only check the Advanced: elevate permissions checkbox if you intend to dynamically change your battery settings.
When using the elevate permissions feature, you might be asked to enter the credentials to the installer account in the next step. These are the credentials used to connect to the inverter in the "Device Commissioning" section of the FusionSolar App. The default password is 00000a..
@eduperez@trendy@slh@frollic@pavelgl Sorry for bothering you all.
Is this the correct configuration correct? It is working fine but does it fulfil proper networking criteria? Or do you suggest any changes?
At least one user reported this as working even with v22.03.0-rc4.
