hope someone can help as I'm going crazy here and I can't figure it out
I got this BT home hub 5 a with openwrt 18.06 installed
I can power the router and connect to it via wire or wireless
for the moment I don;t have it connected as a modem as the DSL hasn't switched yet
so I've connected the router on my existing network
I have 2 switches with several devices connected
as my gateway is 18.104.22.168 I changed the default address of the openwrt router to 192.168.1.254 so that can be on the same network
I thought I could reach it and configure it while still using my existing network
seemed pretty straight forward to me
but no. I can't reach the IP unless I connect directly to the router or the wifi
and if I do then I lose connectivity with every other device on the network
can anyone think what could be the issue?
how come I cant reach any device on the network even though they are on the same subnet?
I just can't explain it or find out what's wrong with it
oh here is the network file
config globals 'globals' option ula_prefix 'fdae:3f1e:c0f0::/48' config atm-bridge 'atm' option payload 'bridged' option nameprefix 'dsl' option vci '38' option vpi '0' option encaps 'vc' config dsl 'dsl' option annex 'a' option tone 'av' option ds_snr_offset '0' option xfer_mode 'ptm' config interface 'lan' option type 'bridge' option ifname 'eth0.1' option proto 'static' option ipaddr '192.168.1.254' option netmask '255.255.255.0' option ip6assign '60' option delegate '0' config device 'lan_dev' option name 'eth0.1' option macaddr 'c8:91:f9:1e:b4:8c' config interface 'wan' option proto 'pppoe' option ifname 'dsl0.101' option ipv6 'auto' option keepalive '0' config device 'wan_dev' option name 'dsl0' option macaddr 'c8:91:f9:1e:b4:8d' config interface 'wan6' option ifname '@wan' option proto 'dhcpv6' config switch option name 'switch0' option reset '1' option enable_vlan '1' config switch_vlan option device 'switch0' option vlan '10' option ports '0 1 2 4 6t' config switch_vlan option device 'switch0' option vlan '2' option ports '5 6t' config interface 'vlan10' option proto 'none' option stp '1' option auto '1' option ifname 'eth0.1' option type 'bridge'
I've tried to add the vlan10 as the switches are all on vlan10 (although that shouldn't make any difference as that;s only for the switches to use)
but nothing seems to work
I only want to use this router as a normal device - no complex
and I want to be able to reach any device on the network when I am connected to this router via wifi
can you spot anything I'm doing wrong?
thank you in advance for any help
