I have difficulty replicating setting from another OpenWRT router.
What I would really love is for Luci to create me a layered diagram that shows connections based on the settings.
I have a working router so I want to replicate it, but when I do (on several different routers) it does not work.
It is simple enough and this page describes the goal well
EXCEPT the working router I have does not have RelayD or any other Relay plugin as far as I can determine, so how come it works?
I does have some interfaces that appear to be unused but I can't be sure, I only just realised a key setting was through WAN and not WWAN on the working router, yet WAN has nothing attached to it or configured in SWITCH settings as far as I can see.
On the working router WAN is configured on 192.168.20.254 which is a dead end, so it seems similar to the second subnet used in relay_configuration above, but no relayD installed and yet it works.
What I struggle with is trying to replicate a OpenWRT router which has one radio and so may have completely different settings to one with two. It means that a setting should not be replicated to be identical.
To complicate matters there is a VPN configured on tun0 but this seems to be a total dead end, I dare not delete it but it is not started so probably a red herring.
I tried the Status screen but it does not show enough to help me understand all the connections.
What I would like is a sort of Pyramid that shows base switch connections and WWAN at the bottom then builds interfaces on them based on settings of IP, Physical and Firewall.
Is there a config file that may help me use a spreadsheet to map out the relationships to help better understand the configuration?
I have tried taking screenshots, then chopping them up but I always seem to miss something.
It is worth noting that OpenWRT is the only router I can have this working on, stock firmwares fail as does DD-WRT.
One other thought is whether I can save settings from one router and restore them to a completely different brand?
I am reluctant to do this because then I do not learn.
