If you find the OpenWrt device itself is only accessible from those computers directly connected to the W-LAN AP, not from the ones connected to the OpenWrt W-LAN client, when in the 192.168.1.0 subnet, Make sure the Local IPv4 address setting in the Relay bridge interface matches the ip address of the wireless uplink.

I'm having trouble understanding how to "bridge" my router. I am using USB tethering on my Android to provide internet access. What I want to achieve is to have a second router (Router 2) "behind" the OpenWRT router that gets the WAN IP address from the phone. So the setup would look like this: Android --usb--> Router 1 (OpenWRT, Bridged OpenWrt router as bridged repeater using relayd. Last modified on 2015-06-26. Extend the range of a wireless network using a cheap and cheerful router running OpenWrt as a bridged repeater. All client devices use the same IP address range and are capable of communicating with each other. Let’s go! Jul 19, 2016 · I was hoping to load OpenWRT to the Philips Hue to replace what's on the bridge currently. I'm kind of new to OpenWRT, so could I ask how you flashed the firmware and what exact build you used? Post #10 Here, it’s important to check “Bridge interfaces” and to select both the ethernet adapter, most likely eth0, and the wireless network. One of the ethernet devices will say “wan”, if your are using a router instead of an access point for this. You don’t want that device.

I'm fairly new to wireless communication. I've been wading through forums and openwrt docs for a while. I haven't been able to implement either a bridge or a repeater successfully so I thought maybe my understanding of the fundamentals was wrong. Thanks for any help!

My understanding of bridging is that it ties together two interfaces at layer 2. I am looking at a Ubiquiti Nanostation2 running OpenWRT that has an ethernet port 'eth0' and a wifi port 'ath0'. The ethernet port (the 'wan' port) is not part of the bridge and the bridge is just a single interface. Amazon.com: GL.iNET GL-AR300M-Lite Mini Travel Router, OpenWrt Pre-Installed, Repeater Bridge, 300Mbps High Performance, One Ethernet Port, 16MB Nor Flash, 128MB RAM, OpenVPN, Tor Compatible: Computers & Accessories Login (no password by default) and you are now in with OpenWRT firmware. The built in Ethernet cable is the LAN, the port on the device is the WAN, and the AP is set to OpenWRT with a bridge to the LAN by default - you can change all of this and more - see openwrt for documentation. Enjoy! I am trying to enable the multicast of hosted openWrt. I believe that the bridge between the LAN and WAN is the most straightforward way to do so. Embedded Linux. Linux. Wireless Networks.

On each OpenWrt 'route' and 'route_gateway' options. Tis is strange options, if you using bridge. It's not bridge, it is a whole fully routable WAN. option 'route' '192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0' option 'route_gateway' '192.168.6.1' 2) don't use pre-configured config - create new with different name. Doesn't help.

OpenWRT Barrier Breaker 14.07 x86 on Virtaulbox with 256MB RAM. Now we will set up local bridge since SecureNAT is slow by itself and will be even slower on a router.
