I am looking to build a mesh network for home using openwrt routers. My requirements are simple and not a lot of throughput is needed but for my IOT experiments, I need all the devices to collect IP addresses from the same gateway router. Earlier, I was using a client to take the wifi signal to farflung portion of the house but I am never able to successfully use luci-proto-relay to get IP address across.
I think mesh may solve this problem of whole house and only one DHCP.
Is there a recipe out there? If not I would be happy to write one if I can get some guidance.
