I have been using OpenWRT for a while on my router but I am struggling with trying to setup a dumb AP using VLANs. I am completely new to setting up wireless to VLAN - I just have something missing which I cannot get working.
Linksys 1900ACS main router using OpenWRT (v22.03), with vlans setup - this works perfectly on a managed switch as I can see the correct ip addresses on untagged ports (for each vlan). The VLANS are being sent via trunk to the managed switch. I have configured the managed switch to send VLANs 1, 20 and 60 as a trunk on one port to the dumb AP.
Linksys EA7300 as dumb AP (OpenWRT v22.03). I have connected one port on the managed switch sending:
VLAN 1 - untagged
VLAN 60 - Guest - tagged
VLAN 20 - Home - tagged
On the dumb AP, I have setup the following:
Disabled firewall and dnsmasq
bridge for LAN1 - br-lan1 - assigning Lan1, br-lan1.1, br-lan1.60, br-lan1.20
Guest - br-lan.60 (unmanaged as ip address being issued from main router)
Home - br-lan.20 (unmanaged as ip address being issued from main router)
MGMT - br-lan.1 (unmanaged as ip address being issued from main router)
2.4ghz - assigned Guest interface (br-lan.60)
5ghz - assigned Home interface (br-lan.20)
Somehow, for the wireless, if I assign the 'lan' interface I am able to obtain internet using VLAN1 ip address, if I assign either of the Guest or Home interfaces to the wireless devices, nothing happens - my phone cannot connect to wireless SSID.
I am completely confused why this isn't working. Looking online there are eth0 ports, but I don't understand how this will help.
I hope some of you knowledgeable folk can help me?
Many thanks, D.
