I recently flashed the newest OpenWRT on EdgeRouter X. Now, I started to configure, then realized that there is no "switch" on Network-Menu on Luci. I tried to paste
option name 'switch0'
option reset '1'
option enable_vlan '1'
option device 'switch0'
option vlan '1'
option vid '1'
option ports '0t 1'
to /etc/config/network to see if something shows up, but nothing happened;; I'm wondering if I'm supposed to learn DSA a lot and do like this:
but I am afraid if I get into something like this, I wont be able to change config quickly as needed in future. Is there any package so that "switch" will show up on a tab, or is it planned in the near future? My fritzbox4020, also with DSA, came with a normal switch page, so I don't see why it shouldn't be there for EdgeRouterX....
If I just create interfaces and vlans using eth0.xx, is it going to be all tagged to eth0, thus making ERX into a kind of Raspberry pi?
I would appreciate your hints!
Yes, the er-x is a dsa device.
Here is some info about the openwrt implementation:
Also, search the forum for dsa and/or er-x for examples.
Thank you for your reply! I was stupid to have thought that I already knew DSA: my Fritzbox4020 has DSA (21.03), but it still does have "switch" menu, so it's not a genuine DSA router. Now I watched onemarcfifty's video again https://youtu.be/qeuZqRqH-ug he's great, I think I'm good to go:)
The AVM Fritz!Box 4020 does not use DSA yet at all - and won't anytime soon, it's still fully swconfig based (like 'all' other devices of the ath79 target it belongs to).
The ipq40xx based AVM Fritz!Box 4040 would be DSA based on post-22.03 OpenWrt master.
 there is https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/4622 pending, but it's not currently pursued (qca8k being slower than AR8216/ swconfig andthe target being so large and diverse, making this a monumental effort.
 yes, I know f the tl-wr941nd v2/3 and MV88E6060, which -as a 4/32 device- isn't supported anymore.
Hello! where can i find list of dsa supported devices?
