Ethernet client + Router

  • Hello everyone,
    I am very much new to this field. and this is the first time I am using omega board.

    Currently, I am using omega2S+ and there is no wifi access given to the board yet.

    I want Omega to obtain network access through a wired connection and shares network access through its WiFi AP.
    May I know the steps to be followed to achieve this.

    Thanks in advance.

    See the Option2 method under "10/100 WAN Port"(the very last section)in this document:

    It requires 5x0.01uF capacitors and 4 Resistors.

    I tried with Omega2+ and the Expansion Dock (not the SMD version; I don't have one) and was able to connect to the Ethernet Port of another Wifi Router using the TX+, TX-, Rx+ & Rx- pins.

    Once physical connection is ok, the Ethernet Port will be active (as seen in the photograph, Port 3 - forget the RPi).

    This router is configured for DHCP for Ethernet ports and the eth0 of Omega gets IP address from the router:
    [ 1597.684822] rt3050-esw 10110000.esw: link changed 0x00
    [ 1599.613398] rt3050-esw 10110000.esw: link changed 0x01
    root@Omega-745F:/# ifconfig eth0
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 40:A3:6B:C5:74:60
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    inet6 addr: fe80::42a3:6bff:fec5:7460/64 Scope:Link
    RX packets:193 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:386 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:17726 (17.3 KiB) TX bytes:105364 (102.8 KiB)

    The current routing table of this Omega is:
    root@Omega-745F:/# route -n
    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface UG 0 0 0 apcli0 U 0 0 0 apcli0 U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 br-wlan

    Once you reach these far, next step will be to configure the eth0 as gateway,it would look like
    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface <IP.ADD.RE.SS> UG 0 0 0 eth0

    You may want to use UCI to reconfigure the Omega, the way you want it.
    Please see:

    The current config can be viewed using:
    root@Omega-745F:/# uci show
