Routed Client Doc Erroneous?


Re: OpenWrt Project: Routed Client page

Problem: iwlist scan fails

Router Details: Linksys WRT1900ACS V2, OpenWrt LEDE 17.01.5 installed and reset to default values

Following the preliminary instructions given near the top of the page --

PuTTY returns --

(Here I assume that the bullet notes such as "Remove the disable 1 option from the wireless configuration" refer to the commands listed above and are not instructions of further things to do before executing iwlist scan.)

Routed Client Experiment #1: Is this a Routed Client?

iwlist has been replaced by iw, see should be updated accordingly.


There is also no need to put the device in station mode anymore nowadays, a mere iwinfo radio0 scan should suffice, regardless of the state the radio is in.


When I try to thank people individually I get a message to the effect it is redundant and I should post something different. So let me try this.

Thank you tmomas and jow.

Perhaps I should not be wasting forum drive space thanking people and just use the thumbs up and/or solved flags in the future?

In this thread both tmomas and jow share the solution since they both provide informative details, but I can only flag one as a solution.
