I have been able to install LEDE in my TP-Link WDR4300, and I am able to log on into the WDR4300. However, when I go to diagnostics. Network Utilities and ping 'lade-project.org' I have following error: 'ping bad address 'lade-project.org'
My WDR4300 WAN port is connected to a LAN port of my main router. I can see under 'Status Overview" that an IP address is assigned to WDR430, and I can ping from WDR4300 way up to the main router.
Have anyone seen this error? or Can anyone point me to the right direction?
Sanity check: does your typo of "lade-project" have anything to do with it?
lol..sorry It was a bad typo, and I wish that would it be the issue. it is 'lede-project.org'.
OK I was wondering if a possible issue is the following:
- WDR4300 WAN port is connected to LAN port of main router
- Both WDR4300 and main router are on 192.168.1.1. IP address
- HOWEVER. Main router assigned following IP address to WDR4300
Protocol: DHCP Client
Digging a bit more..
*Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (which is same IP as main router)
*DNS1 and DNS2, same IP address as Gateway
Bottom line...I am not 100% sure if LEDE router and main router same IP address is the reason for my issue...any suggestions??
Thank you so much for your options. Try number one, and yep, all good now, can ping my "lede-project.org". so Would you mind to explain what was the issue?
You cannot have two machines with the same IP (192.168.1.1) address in your network, and you cannot have two networks with the same range (192.168.1.x) on different interfaces of the same device (unless you have a very special use case, and really know what you are doing).
Thank you for your reply. I knew about the same IP address (so one unique IP address in same network per device). However,
you cannot have two networks with the same range (192.168.1.x) on different interfaces of the same device
did not strike me as an issue, I will get back to pen and paper and try to understand this one better....
Again thank you for your observations
Your LEDE device was 192.168.1.5 on the WAN interface, and 192.168.1.1 on the LAN interface (let's forget that there was another 192.168.1.1 device on the WAN part). Now, when your LEDE device needs to contact another device, say 184.108.40.206, what interface should it use to send the packets? Both networks are supposed to hold all devices in the range 192.168.1.x.
