Network - AP on/off - I am very confused.

  • I don't really know how to explain this, but:
    I changed my 2+ IP address to
    I can connect to it and do the usual stuff wirelessly from my laptop by selecting its network.
    My regular facility wireless network is 10.1.10.x
    I'm not sure why they don't conflict.
    I can ping (the 2+) from the wired side of my facility network.
    I cannot ping it from the wireless side of my facility network (i.e. from my phone connected to my facility wireless network).
    If I change my phone to the 2+ network, I can ping it just fine.

    I want to set up the Omega2+ as a controller on my regular facility wireless network. I will send it an http message and it will turn stuff on and off. (Program works fine if I put my phone (sending device) on the 2+ network.)
    Program also works if I send it a message from the wired side of the facility network.
    Does not work if the phone is on the facility wireless. Somehow, my facility wireless router makes the 2+ 'unreachable'

    I am completely lost. Does this have something to do with the 2+ acting as an access point? Do I need to turn that off? Can I ?

    Here is my /etc/config/network data

    config interface 'loopback'
    option ifname 'lo'
    option proto 'static'
    option ipaddr ''
    option netmask ''

    config globals 'globals'
    option ula_prefix 'fd1d:48c4:7633::/48'

    config interface 'wlan'
    option type 'bridge'
    option proto 'static'
    option hostname'MSPPlaner'
    option netmask ''
    option ip6assign '60'
    option ipaddr ''
    option dns-nameservers ''

    config interface 'wwan'
    option ifname 'apcli0'
    option proto 'dhcp'
    option hostname 'Omega-6735'

    config interface 'wan'
    option ifname 'eth0'
    option proto 'dhcp'

    I just want to set up the 2+ as a device that I can send an http message to (using Python3 BaseHTTPRequestHandler and HTTPServer)

    Any help for this poor lost duckling greatly appreciated !

  • Let me maybe make this simpler.
    I need the 2+ to boot and attach to an existing wireless network with a static IP address. (Just as a device - not an access point.)

    Can someone direct me to documentation ? (Everything I seem to be able to find is for the older OS.)

  • @Jim-W Here is an example of /etc/config/network to connect to wifi with static ip:

    config interface 'wwan'
    option ifname 'apcli0'
    option proto 'static'
    option ipaddr ''
    option netmask ''
    option hostname 'NameOfMyDevice'

  • YES ! EXCELLENT ! This worked.
    Thank you Very Much !
    (I did have to move my wlan section back to the original).

    Thank you again !
