Router ModelTP-Link TL-WR841ND v11
Firmware Version DD-WRT v3.0-r44251 std (08/27/20)
Kernel VersionLinux 3.18.140-d5 #89006 Thu Aug 27 12:48:05 +04 2020 mips

I have two routers - the TPLink is an ap it uses the internet from the main router and it all works fine.

I want to share my internet connection with my neighbour so I add a VAP using the guidelines:

https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Guest_Network#VAP_with_no_WAN

All works ok but no Internet.

I then tried adding firewalls but that just made things worse.

After looking around at the many confusing posts on this subjects I decided to restore the working vap with no internet and added a bridge myself - thanks to (mrjcd) this post:
https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1047143#1047143

However whilst my solution was simple and worked (the VAP now has internet) I am concerned that my bridge has simply opened up my entire lan/wifi!

Anyway - this is what I had before I added the NEW bridge:

Current Bridging Table
Bridge Name STP Interface
br0 no ath0 eth0 eth1

And this is how it looks now:
Bridge Name STP Interface
br0 no ath0 ath0.1 eth0 eth1

Anyone assure me this is ok or if not how I can fix it?




Whilst I am at it... the other thing I would like to do is turn the radio off on the ath0.1 from 7pm until 6am.

I cannot see how to do this using the gui - only gives the option of turning the radio off/on for everything - so pointers for this would be appreciated.

Thanks
