OpenWrt with 802.11s mesh and pppoe

hi there
can i use 802.11s mesh network with pppoe server like this
i have 4 ap one from theme connected by there ethernet to my pppoe server

config interface 'loopback'
        option ifname 'lo'
        option proto 'static'
        option ipaddr ''
        option netmask ''

config globals 'globals'
        option ula_prefix 'fd09:2fcc:2397::/48'

config interface 'wan'
        option type 'bridge'
        option ifname 'eth0'
        option proto 'pppoe'
        option password '1'
        option username '1'

config interface 'lan'
        option proto 'static'
        option ipaddr ''
        option netmask ''
        option dns ''
        option ip6assign '60'

option interface 'mesh'
        option type 'bridge'
        option ifname 'eht0'

this ap connected and its work fine
but my problem from other side client mesh ap 2 ,3 ,4
its should connected to 1 Ap and connect with there pppoe client usernot from main ap pppoe client user is it posible if yes how can i do it .

Any idea ?

You're setting up one "main router"-- the one that is connected to the Internet via a DSL modem-- and several "dumb APs"-- the ones that do not have a direct connection to the DSL modem.

This is done by bridging the LANs together. The simplest (and highest performance, and most reliable) way to do this is with Ethernet cables.

But in many cases it is not practical to install cables, so a wireless mesh can be used instead. From a routing software point of view, the mesh is the same as a network of cables. So first you need to set up the main router and dumb APs as if they were connected by cables. There are instructions in the wiki to do this.

Once that is set up, then you can start mesh wifi interfaces and attach them to the LAN. This is all done in /etc/config/wireless.

thank u my dear
I have pppoe server this from this pppoe server I get one cable this cable for main AP in eth0 what I need this eth0 bridging to other mesh client which connect to it and open pppoe connection in mesh client is it possible

i give u image for what i need openwrt-dig

fro this image i have pppoe-server and i get acble from it to main ap (eth0)
the main ap have three interface first one for its self pppoe connection and second one for lan network for our client and the third for mesh network my problem with mesh interface how can i bridge eth0 to mesh client .


ppp is Point to Point. In order to extend service to more than one point, you have to route, not bridge.

In other words the only use of eth0 is to connect to the PPP server. The PPP server expects all of its usage to come from one place, the main router. On that router it is the WAN network. Your users are on a LAN network established by the main router.

Ok . For routing do u have any idea ? And in Wich side should I do routing between main router and mesh client or between server and main router can u explain ?
