My ISP has a router/telephone combo router, Calix Gigasystem which is connected to an ONT. It is remotely activated and configured, therefore, the settings that are accessible to me are minimal. I cannot find a setting for bridge. I do find DMZ.
I wanted to convert an old tplink wdr4300 to openwrt so I can use DNS over TLS since I wanted privacy. Also want to disable the WiFi in the ISP router and use this Openwrt router for everything.
The default ISP router is at 192.168.1.1 / subnet mask 255.255.255.0
What I did was create static ip for wan in the Openwrt router to 192.168.1.20 / subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and on the lan I changed it to 192.168.2.1
First question : Is this configuration correct?
I notice that under Interface, the wan is shown at Eth0.2.
Second question: When I set up SQM, should I select Eth0 or Eth0.2?
I notice that after I install snapshot, the router doesn't access the internet, can you tell me the commands to manually change the wan to 192.168.1.20 via Putty.
Thank you very much. Your help is very much appreciated.
ONT sounds a bit like fibre, which would imply relatively fast WAN throughputs - the tl-wdr4300, like all ar71xx devices, is a bit limited in that regard (even more so with SQM); I wouldn't expect it to cope with throughputs significantly above 100 MBit/s.
