Router suggestions

Thu May 05, 2016 2:56 pm

I'm new to OpenWRT but not networking. I got my Vocore + Dock a few days ago.

I'm hoping someone can help me with some config examples for a wifi router.

Also, can someone recommend a USB ethernet adapter?

Thanks.

In my opinion, VoCore's typical application is IoT application, which WiFi is enough and no need dock, and "AP+STA" mode is just good. So ethernet port is configured as LAN port by default.
When you want VoCore as a router, you should configure ethernet port as WAN by modify "/etc/config/network".

Code: Select all
config switch_vlan
        option device 'switch0'
        option vlan '1'
-        option ports '0 4 6t'
+        option ports '0 6t'
+config switch_vlan
+        option device 'switch0'
+        option vlan ‘2'
+        option ports '4 6t'
+config interface wan
+    option ifname ‘eth0.2'
+    option proto ‘dhcp'

I bought the vocore + dock and that's what I have, so I'll take your recommendations into advisement.

Thanks for the advice about making it into a router. I don't know enough about OpenWRT to know how the port names work, but I will research that.
