I'm setting up OpenWrt for the first time and using a ZBT-WG3526
What I'm trying to do with the Archer is to connect it wirelessly to another router which has internet to boost the wifi signal . It should also have it's own IP-range to not really interfere with the downstairs wifi.
What I have done already is to check the interface but i cannot seems to find the repeater interface.
if anyone can point me to the right direction. my parent would be happy to get this set up for theirs camper
Thank you for your answer. i have flashed wit the official firmware and i can connect it wit hthe exisiting networks now.
i don't know why the seller keep saying they dont advice to use the officiaal image.
before updating, i'll have to do some reading. but my parents are happy for now.
those updates i've shared are so far good ?
when insering the SIM it will detect the API automatically? and even doing roaming?
no idea, don't know what they ship, and it's replaceable anyway.
go to that install page, and install usbutils.
DL Putty, ssh to the IP of the router, login with the same user and pass as in the webui.
run lsusb once logged in, post the output (in a new thread).
like the one above, not really an issue, but a temp road block
this is the back side of openwrt, you have a gazillion options, but you need to be able to figure out
what you need, and how to get there ...
this the output

Regarding the upgrades... don't upgrade packages unless you have a very specific reason to do so. The preferred method is to use the latest OpenWrt firmware image whenever it is updated.
Upgrading packages (via the CLI opkg upgrade command or the LuCI Upgrade... button) can result in major problems. It is generally highly discouraged, unless you know what you are doing or if there is specific instruction to do so.
QMI modems don't require modemmanager. With the QMI stack installed you can simply create an interface of proto qmi and it will start up the modem for you. This modem should automatically get the carrier's preferred APN from the SIM card, so try without setting an APN first.
And what @psherman said, if you've been using opkg upgrade you should re-flash the whole OS and start over.
