Hi guys, sorry if this doesn't make sense, I've been working for hours on this problem and it's very late.
I'm trying to make a wifi repeater on my EA4500. I have firmware version LEDE Reboot 17.01.3 r3533-d0bf257c46 / LuCI lede-17.01 branch (git-17.232.21093-079f65a)
I think that helps. I'm really really new to Linux and firmware flashing and everything.
I followed the instructions here https://lede-project.org/docs/user-guide/relay_configuration and got everything done. But the wifi repeater wouldn't work. So I messed around with someone's suggestion on a related topic and broke it. I did a failsafe (3 failed attempts to boot) to get it to work again and reflashed to the lastest firmware again.
Now I keep having the problem of where I can't change my ipaddress (the first step in https://lede-project.org/docs/user-guide/relay_configuration this link). I wait about 5 minutes and can't get to to switch to 192.168.2.1. It just crashes and starts shooting out only a ipv4 address that isn't connectable so I have to failsafe again. I've done it twice and just wondering what I'm doing wrong. Any advice?
