OPENWRT, 1 Gbit/s internet connection , Raspberry 4 B and VLAN
[I‘m german spoken (had some school-learned small Oxford-English 40 years ago), I‘m sorry about perhaps some mistakes using wrong vocabulary...]
I think I need some help so I try to get some here.
My router carreer:
- selfmade router using raspberry 3 & raspbian
- sophos home UTM 9
- OPENWRT @ raspberry 3 plus 4 ext usb nics
Now I upgraded the internet connection to 1 Gbit/s (Vodafone/KabelDeutschland), still using latest OPENWRT @ raspberry3 which was very good for 100Mbit internet connection...
For the new beginning using the raspi 4 I have to use the snapshot version of OPENWRT but there are some problems:
At the first snapshot I installed I was not able to install mc (preferred file manager and editor) because missing some libssh2 (?) library. But I was able to get ssh connection and installed luci.
After some days pausing my “challenge” I was not able to add a kernel module for a RTL USB NIC because it doesn’t fit to the kernel (some small newer sub version?).
The downloaded actual (2 days ago) daily snapshot had some error (7zip told me that).
I am really confused now…
I HAVE to use snapshot because raspi 4 is not supported by the stable release.
Do I have no chance to use my raspi 4 in a "stable way"?
Is there any “frozen” version of OPENWRT so I have no - possibly- daily change of kernel version and other dependencies?
Is it possible to download the complete repository of a daily snapshot version (preRC ?!?!) and save it on a place in my network? What I have to do for this to make it accessible for my raspi?
My “old” raspi 3 B has an external powered USB3 hub with 4 USB NICs connected: USB1 to modem (exposed host - fritzbox), USB2 to access point1 (10.10.10.x child room), USB3 accesspoint2 (10.10.11.x parents), USB4 (192.168.1.x wired devices (yavdr, printer, daddy pc)…
With the new raspi I wanted to use a small switch TP-Link TL-SG105E instead of USB NICs to save the many network cards. The cheap switch has a web interface and supports port based VLAN and 802.1Q VLAN.
This is the new plan, I am happy that I found this thread!
raspi4 – > SWITCH port1(fritz) port2 (ap1) port3 (ap2) port4 (wired lan)
Is it enough to name the network device i.e. “eth0.3” to enable 802.1q ? or
Maybe I have to define some statements in /etc/config/network?
Sure, I have to configure the ports on the switch using it's web GUI...
Maybe someone wants to help me…
