Wlan (Bridge) 2 hops

Hi ALL,
i need a solution for my problem.
I´ve a network and need 2 new device (LAN1 and LAN2 > not VLAN). I´can´t lay a cable so i need to do that wireless :frowning:
I did it with ubquiti hardware but this is to expensive, so i want to use 2 or 3 tp-link router ( or other hardware ... please feel free) .....
openwrt

How can i do this ??

Thanks and stay healthy

WDS, probably. Get something with Qualcomm/Atheros chipset to ensure compatibility. That should be simple enough to do with 2 routers, or more than one router connecting to a common router.

I am not sure if it's possible with 3 routers as two hops, but I think it should work. You will want to have routers with two radios.

There is not vlan concept in wifi, so you'll have to bridge a wifi interface to a vlan interface on the OpenWrt routers.

Depending on your building layout, you might be able to get the distance using some of these. This was just the cheapest one I found from a 1min search, there’s quite a few of these available now

but there´s no VLAN.
I explained it ..... LAN1 and LAN2 are the 2 different Clients (wired)

there´s no connection between the circuits ... thats the rason to take WLAN

you'll create it on the switch of the rightmost OpenWrt.

Thkz for your help ... please read the text correct.
I don´t need any VLAN !!
One Lan connect to Device1 > wireless > Device2 > wireless > Device3
In Device3 I want to plug in 2 Lan cables (integrated switch in Device3) for the 2 Devices

Thanks

Then write the specs better.

You want to plug 2 ethernet cables.
And on device 3 there are not LAN1 and LAN2, but a single LAN.

As you can see, LAN1/2 are differently interpreted (as separate networks) as you had intended.
I think it would help to clear up the confusion if you replaced LAN1/2 by Device/PC/Client/... 1/2 in your sketch in the first posting.

May I add that if the purpose of router 2 (and even possibly router 1) is to provide Internet access to router 3 as you can't extend a cable, then you could instead consider a set of poweline adapters.
