so after playing with it I can get it to work with the official firmware by linksys but not the WAN port or port 1 on the switch obviously but the whole switch wont work at all in openwrt 19 or 21. (using default configs)
in openwrt 19 I disabled dhcp and removed the WAN from the bridge this guide https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/network/wifi/dumbap
I've tried setting up individual ports also but doesnt matter what i do with my configs the kernel log doesnt show any activity on them
(dmesg) for link status being down, then up
whats the official firmware doing differently that allows the switch to work. the switch can give IP or be used without the dhcp server and pass the dhcp through to wireless.
open wrt doesnt even detect the active ports entering and leaving promiscuous mode when pugging a connection in and disconnecting when in the bridge.
I though it might be eth0 causing problems so removed it from all configs but it made no difference
any suggested config tweaks to get the switch functioning
i'm currently doing things in openwrt via serial as its so much easier, but wifi works fine no problem in openwrt.
It would be nice to be able to continue using it as a bridge and wireless and have my replacement wrt3200 handling dhcp and pppoe.
