Pseudo Client Bridge No Can Do

OpenWrt build : LEDE Reboot 17.01.5 r3919-38e704be71 / LuCI lede-17.01 branch (git-18.180.55366-b78664c)
Packages installed : relayd and luci-proto-relay
Router : WRT1900ACS

OK after at least 24 hours of basic research on OpenWrt and interpolating half a dozen examples that are not using this particular OpenWrt firmware I am unable to successfully build a wireless Client Pseudo-Bridge from wwlan 192.168.0.1 (WiFi upstream with internet connection) through wwlan 192.168.0.2 to lan 192.168.1.1

If someone has a detailed recipe for me on how to successfully do this, I would appreciate it.

I really wanted to give OpenWrt a good shakedown and learn how to set it up properly, but I give up as I have found it impossible to create a simple Client Bridge. So,It is back to DD-WRT for me now. If I can get some help I'll give OpenWrt another try.

Best wishes to all,

BTW, on the 192.168.0.2 wwan side when I examine the 192.168.0.1 router connections it shows the WRT1900ACS connected as 192.168.0.2. Packets are being exchanged and I can download the relayd and luci-proto-relay. So either the 192.168.1.1 lan or the relay bridge or the firewall is improperly configured. I have tried and tried to get this to work with various LuCI settings gleaned from examples and none work to create a bridge.

Is there a reason you're not simply routing the traffic from the 192.168.0.0/24 subnet to the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet? Bridges are typically for the same subnet.

I am attempting the "pseudo bridge" relay. Cannot get it to work. See this map (obsolete).

No reason. I used DD-WRT with a client bridge in this manner and it worked just fine so I thought this would work too. How would I simply route 192.168.0.1's internet connection to 192.168.1.1 without a bridge and to an independent 192.168.1.1 with its own DHCP?

This is what I am trying to do...

192.168.1.1 with its own DHCP >>WiFi connection to>>192.168.0.1 with internet.

I thought the only way to do this was with a client bridge as in --

192.168.1.1 >> Bridge connect to >> 192.168.0.1

With DD-WRT it is done with a snap with two routers on the 192.168.1.1 side.

192.168.1.11 Access Point wired to 192.168.1.1 router which bridges on the WiFi wan side via 192.168.0.2 to the 192.168.0.1 router with internet.

In other words, the gateway on 192.168.1.etc is 192.168.1 2 and the gateway for 192.168.0.2 is 192.168.0.1

This makes for two completely independent LANs save for the interconnecting bridge.

fwiw, could you try the instructions for setting up Pseudo bridge in section 9.10 of the lede install guide for HH5A ?

I know the instructions work fine for HH5a and WD Mynet N750 router with 17.01.4. I haven't tested 17.01.5 or 18.06.0.

I recall there were some glaring mistakes in the original openwrt wiki when I tried to follow the instructons last year.

Update: I can confirm same instructions work fine with 18.06.0 on HH5a in a brief test.

The current wiki page for that is https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/network/wifi/relay_configuration (not that it is any different).

Assuming your hardware supports it, WDS is a lot more straightforward way to set up wireless bridging.

Thank you, but I misstated the network scenario and have moved my query to a new, corrected and better explained post Special Type Of Wireless Client Bridge if you have time to take a look.

I have examined some WDS solutions and prefer to pursue this current direction (for now at least).
