How to make and manage WAN ethernet connection?

Fri Jan 03, 2020 11:24 am

Hi,
firstly, I made ethernet port for naked vocore2.
I can`t make and manage wan connection. Outgoing packets I see but there is no incoming packets.
But, at the switch chapter in LuCI I see Port0 worked link.
Also Vocore works great as access point(?), when it starts with cable connection to my home router, I have Internet through Vocore and local IP from home router`s DHCP, but I can`t connect to LuCI...
I tried to use this tutorial, but nothing changed...

Hi,
Which ethernet port you are using? default only port0 is enabled.
And port0 default is in WAN mode, once you connect it with your computer it will work(do not connect wireless or its ip will conflict).
If you want to connect to your router, you need to set it into LAN mode, that will need to setup in luci interface, the virtual network or modify /etc/config/network.

Yes, it's port0. And I'm trying to setup vocore as ordinary wifi router, the same way. Power up vocore, connect to it by wifi, connect port0 to ordinary home router as a source of internet by dhcp, go to LuCI web
interface, but it's nothing at wan port in LuCI. Or I can't check and setup vocore port0 as wan if have established connection by wifi, isn't it?

So, it's conflict with my understanding. I have to change vocore to lan mode to check and modify wan connection. Isn't it?

Correct, currently ethernet is WAN mode, so it can not get DHCP from your home router.
You need to set it to LAN mode, so it is able to get IP from your router,
