well by now i managed to install openwrt on the device, finally lol. but now i have the problem with WAN. i kinda dont understand how to handle 2 vlan switches to assign WAN to a lan port. any combination i do does not work. they either turn each other off in the switches settings, or the changes revert.
so what i try to do is, to use EB904xdsl as a wlan router, not as a dsl modem, since i already use another a dsl modem.
is there any good tutorial how to assign properly a WAN connection to a lan port? or is it even possible to assign WAN to the dsl port or to the isdn port?
im also a bit confused aobut how the ports are named. so i guess LAN1 - LAN 4 are named eth0,1, eth 0,2, eth0,3 and eth 0,66?
and the dsl port is just eth0 while the black isdn port is eth0,77? am i right?
i actually managed to get internet connection without switching modems, but problem is, i managed it by adding an unmanaged to interfaces. i actually want to seperate EB904xdsl with the modem router and i want EB904xdsl to manage the IP, not my modem. so the unmanaged route is not good for me. so yeah, if anyone has any idea how to properly assign a WAN to one of the ports, i would be glad to know.
i run the newest snapshot btw by quallenaugo from 2020-07-10 from this link: https://app.box.com/s/hvqg535dnubt4r2ontpmtodpvt6ydf00/folder/36913951101
EDIT: also tried to add a new WAN to (example) eth0,3. internet works but stillIP is not managed by eb904xdsl. usually it the IP should be displayed in the interfaces under the WAN addition. what i basically want, is to have my modem and eb904xdsl independent as if i would plug in just a wlan router (works with my other openwrt wlan router). jnot sure if this issues accure bc eb904 is actually a dsl modem and not solely a wlan router.
another problem is, somehow i cant update the software packages. i get "Failed to send request: Operation not permitted". how do i actually install some/can connect to the package repos? reason i need this, is, bc there is no wpa set up. no wlan encryption set ups, nothing.
also, somehow i dont get why in switches, in vlan switch0, the LAN is connected to vlan switch01 LAN1. whnever i turn off LAN in switch0, automaticall LAN1 in switch01 is turned off. besides eb904 fails to save the settings. let me show you quickly what i do: https://i.imgur.com/V9YVkYj.png
i basically tried to use lan port 2 as wan.
EDIT 2: so now i connected the lan cable directly to my main dsl router and it turns my eb904 to a switch without any ip. cant access its standard gateway ip anymore. i could do it before when i connected the lan cable to my current openwrt wlan router that connected to my main dsl router. but direct connection between eb904 and my main modem results in my modem overtaking the eb904 and making it non.existence in the network, as if it was just a switch without any interface.
either im a total noob or eb904 is just depressing if you want to use it as a openwrt wlan router connected to the main dsl modem router
