I'm new to OpenWRT and recently followed instructions to compile an early build for my Netgear WAX206.
Everything seems to work as it should. I believe this setup uses "DSA".
I would like to use the WAX206 as an AP for two isolated VLAN networks on one trunk cable.
Unfortunately I'm not yet smart enough to achieve the configuration I need to make it a drop-in replacement for the old APs.
What I'd need is just 1 Ethernet Port:
-> lan1 untagged + SSID1 + AP webinterface
-> lan1 tagged VLAN1003 + SSID2
no DHCP/DNS/other functionality.
So essentially a "dumb AP" with two SSIDs pointing to two networks; one untagged on lan1, one tagged 1003 on lan1.
here is the default configuration output:
config interface 'loopback' option device 'lo' option proto 'static' option ipaddr '127.0.0.1' option netmask '255.0.0.0' config globals 'globals' option ula_prefix '[redacted]' config device option name 'br-lan' option type 'bridge' list ports 'lan1' list ports 'lan2' list ports 'lan3' list ports 'lan4' config interface 'lan' option device 'br-lan' option proto 'static' option ipaddr '192.168.1.1' option netmask '255.255.255.0' option ip6assign '60' config interface 'wan' option device 'wan' option proto 'dhcp' config interface 'wan6' option device 'wan' option proto 'dhcpv6' wireless: config wifi-device 'radio0' option type 'mac80211' option path 'platform/18000000.wmac' option channel '1' option band '2g' option htmode 'HT20' option disabled '1' config wifi-iface 'default_radio0' option device 'radio0' option network 'lan' option mode 'ap' option ssid 'OpenWrt' option encryption 'none' config wifi-device 'radio1' option type 'mac80211' option path '1a143000.pcie/pci0000:00/0000:00:00.0/0000:01:00.0' option channel '36' option band '5g' option htmode 'HE80' option disabled '1' config wifi-iface 'default_radio1' option device 'radio1' option network 'lan' option mode 'ap' option ssid 'OpenWrt' option encryption 'none'
If I remove the existing lan1 port from br-lan, create a 'static' interface with the correct subnet configured and link an SSID to this network, I can't seem to get an IP or access the webinterface with a non-conflicting static IP on both sides (openwrt interface and the client machine), even though the ethernet port is connected.
I've spent about six hours tonight trying to get this to work. Do I perhaps have to create a bridge for each device? Should I always include eth0? Thanks for any pointers.
