Recently put openwrt back on to my TP-Link Archer C6 EU V2. (last time I tired this I managed to brick the router and ended up buying a new one lol.....so you can tell, I'm not great with this stuff).
So far so good.
I've followed the guide to set it up as a "dumb AP", and enabled only my 5ghz wireless on a high channel number (that was the whole point of using openwrt, because I need a totally clear channel for oculus airlink with my quest 1), and it's working well.
I then went into the "switch" settings and swapped the WAN port from VLAN2 to VLAN1, so that I can use the WAN port as another port.....as in dumb AP mode, the WAN port was not doing anything at all....wasn't working to provide internet to the other devices, and wasn't working as a normal port to connect another device if I put my internet cable to one of the other ports.
Anyways, everything is working, I now have the ethernet cable from my main home router connected to WAN port, even though it's acting as just another port, so I could switch it into any of the others, and switch them all round, doesn't matter....I have my PC, TV, AVR, UHD Player all plugged in to the other ports.....everything is getting internet. Wi-Fi is working, and quest gets internet fine and has a much better connection to my PC.
Only thing is.....the LED's!!!!
Power LED works fine, 5Ghz Wi-Fi seems to function as intended, but I get no other LED functions for the cabled devices.
Is there either a way to restore LED functions correctly?
Ideally, I'd Like :-
LED 1 = POWER (keep as it is)
LED 2 = 5Ghz Wi-Fi, ON when link active (this is normally for 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi, but may as well use it)
LED 3 = 5Ghz Wi-Fi, flash when activity with my quest
LED 4 = LAN ports, ON when link active for any device connected to any of the normal LAN ports, flashing when activity on those devices
LED 5 = WAN port (even though it's no longer a WAN port), ON when link active on this specific port (i.e. the ethernet cable is connected to my main router.....so that if I unplug, or the cable has a fault for example, the light will turn off).
LED 6 = not used...it's for WPS normally, but I can't think of another use for this LED (suggestions).
Would this be possible in DUMB AP mode? or am I trying to do something which doesn't make sense in the IT world?
Any help would be much appreciated, or any suggestions for a different way to give some kind of functionality to the LED's?
