I've always wanted to make "neat" network and just recently tried openwrt so my understanding of networks can be lacking
I want to setup network, build with three openwrt routers (2x TP-Link C6U and one C7).
What i want to achieve:
- Each of 3 slave router having separate subnet (192.168.1.0/24 ... 3.0/24)
- Devices connected to routers being assigned to matching subnet based on router.
- Devices from two different subnets can communicate.
- Each router configurable from any point of network (besides WAN of master router)
** Using one of routers as "master" router with subnet 192.168.0.0/29 only to connect other routers together.
*** Separating lan ports of one of routers to have "two routers in one" (acting both as master and slave).
Effectively having fiber gateway connected to WAN of master router, two slave routers connected to master. And half of master acting as another slave.
I know easiest way to make it work is to use /22 subnet on just one router and use other two as dumb switches with static IPs.
Is it possible? And how to do it?
I can make some diagrams if my explaining got too convoluted.
