Traffic collection with Openwrt, Raspberrry Pi & Ntopng

Hi all,

I am trying to place a router with OpenWrt between my main modem and another router that supplies WiFi access to a large property, I thought a diagram would explain it better

Putting the traffic collection aspect aside for a minute, when I plug everything in, I cannot ping 192.168.1.x from the Asus router at the end of the chain. I think I may need to set up a firewall rule or a bridge on the OpenWrt box to allow this? I am stumped.

Any advice would be very welcome.

Configuration files on the OpenWrt box are as follows
/etc/config/network

config interface 'loopback'
	option ifname 'lo'
	option proto 'static'
	option ipaddr '127.0.0.1'

you say the asus WAN port is plugged... you show one cable yet you list it as having a 3.x address also? confusing... ( i do appreciate the diagram tho' thanks for making the effort )

i'm guessing that you can't ping it cause your facing it's(86U) wan interface... which would be firewalled.

Yeah, the Asus is using the 192.168.3.x. addresses for WiFi connections, sorry I didn't make that clear. So if I switch off the firewall on the Asus I should be able to ping 192.168.1.1 and basically the internet?

A picture does paint a thousand (or a few) words in this case. It was done with LibreOffice draw and these extensions if anyone is interested

Does anyone have any ideas about this pls?
