Simple Network Config Please



  • Hi,

    What I want should be quite simple, yet I am unable to get the thing (Omega 2) working to my satisfaction.

    I understand that OpenWRT is meant to be a router distribution, but I want to use the Omega2 in an IoT setting. So:

    • I do not want dnsmasq in the way.
    • I do not want a fancy firewall, best left to a router
    • I want just 3 straightforward network interfaces
      • loopback (no problem here)
      • wifi connecting as a client to my SSID using the required password
        and configured via dhcp (including dns, ntp, routes and whatever
        option is set by the dhcp server
      • ethernet in a config similar to that of wifi

    The wifi and ethernet should use SLAAC for IPv6 configuration.

    This really should be a easy thing, and I have done it countless times on Linux boxes, yet I have not succeeded so far on the Omega 2. I've tried modifying the files in /etc/config, I looked at board.js (Why define the proto there???) ... but to no avail. I did not understand where apcli0 was defined even when there was no mention of that interface in the config files. I also got it to not appear when it was defined.

    In a word, I am stymied! Help please.



  • May be I should add that I got to this point

    2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UNKNOWN qlen ...
    link/ether 40:a3:6b:b3:a7:0d brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet6 fe80::42a3:6bff:feb3:a70d/64 scope link
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    3: ra0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UNKNOWN qlen ...
    link/ether 40:a3:6b:b3:a7:0e brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet6 fe80::42a3:6bff:feb3:a70e/64 scope link
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    4: apcli0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UNKNOWN ...
    link/ether 42:a3:6b:00:a7:0e brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet 192.168.0.10/24 brd 192.168.0.255 scope global apcli0
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::40a3:6bff:fe00:a70e/64 scope link
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

    With resolv.conf being set correctly and routes too. But, no SLAAC, and the wifi is split over 2 interfaces. The SLAAC is by far the most important. Plus the state is "UNKNOWN" which is kind of weird
