At the moment I'm using a firewall OPNsense which manage the PPPOE connection directly through an external modem. In other terms, for how I see it, tells the modem how to connect and the datastreem goes directly to the firewall skipping the modem IP and network
I have an old TP-Link with OpenWRT (18.06) as mentioned in the title and I'm wondering if I can do the same.
I tried to disable the WAN network (based on the interface DSL0). It seams the modem connects and do not forward the information.
Shall I complete remove the WAN interfate? maybe change protocol to DHCP rather PPPOE
I hope to be able to solve this issue because he idea for this device is to manage local wifi and print server, tested and working flowlessly
thanks for the link. I went through it and it doesn't look it answer my question. Later on I will try to set up the WAN as generic network with static IP and DHCP server associated and then leave the PPPOE connection free for outside calls.
Any further suggestion is welcome and I'll revert with more information as I proceed
PS: the link shows a lede version 22 was installed to the same modem/router. I will investigate to rise security level of mine
There's a wealth of information on other Lantiq devices, for example, the Netgear DM200 has details on a transparent bridge:
There's a bridge setup combining two interfaces, this only goes up until 19.07.xx but basically on the dm200 eth0 and dsl0 were bridged.
I'm not sure if this has changed with the switch from swconfig to DSA, but as I do not currently have a ADSL/VDSL connection to test with, currently using Mobile and FTTP is almost live for me, I cannot go through my DM200 to advise.
There's also the vr3503j and the BT HH5a, @bill888 is usually the quick reply on this subject:
