I'm configuring a second Belkin RT3200 as a dumb access point. In following the guide:
The version of OpenWRT is 22.03.5 r20134-5f15225c1e / LuCI openwrt-22.03 branch git-23.119.80898-65ef406
In the WED section it states to use the package bridger:
Flow offloading happens in situations where flows are actually being tracked, ie. when using NAT/routing. To use WED on a dumb access point requires the bridger package which does a bit of BPF magic to get bridged streams tracked (and hence offloaded).
- Install the bridger package. Optionally edit
/etc/config/bridgerand define a device or bridge to exclude from bridge forwarding acceleration.
However when I refresh available packages and search I cannot find bridger in the list.
It is however present in GIT https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/openwrt.git;a=tree;f=package/network/services/bridger
I'm assume I'm missing something. Should packages there show in the package manager? Should I use a different method of install? If so could anyone point me at a guide.
Thanks for your help.
