Router Model: Linksys EA8500
Firmware Version: DD-WRT v3.0-r49492M Community Build by EGC (07/14/22)
Upgraded from: DD-WRT v3.0-r49419M Community Build by EGC (07/05/22)
Reset: No not this time
Status: Up and running for 20 hours, basic setup as Gateway, static leases, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz switched off, OpenVPN server working, WireGuard Server working (multiple clients e.g. phone, laptop and site-to-site connection with remote location), NAS and Samba working, Avahi and Avahi-utils working
5 GHz Mixed VHT160, WDS AP + 2 VAP (home and guest)
2.4 GHz Mixed Dynamic (20/40MHz), WDS AP + 2 VAP (home and guest)
2 x VLAN's (placing 2 eth ports into seperate network to isolate IoT on wire with it's own DHCP server of 192.168.125.x)
2 x Bridges
br0=(VLAN1 and both home VAP's and 5GHz WDS AP with DHCP server of 192.168.115.x)
br1=(both guest VAP's and 2.4 WDS AP with it's own DHCP server of 192.168.120.x))
OpenVPN client supporting 192.168.115.1/25 (allows higher IP's to bypass the VPN when needed)
Static leases across all three networks
5 GHz Mixed VHT160, WDS Station + 2 VAP (home and guest)
2.4 GHz Mixed Dynamic (20/40MHz), WDS Station + 2 VAP (home and guest)
2 x Bridges
br0=(all eth and both home VAP's and 5GHz WDS Station)
br1=(both guest VAP's and 2.4 WDS Station) (I know the 5GHz VAP on the WDS Station is only really 2.4MHz as the backhaul is on the 2.4GHz)
Errors: None so far.
Getting 60-80MB/sec transfer between wired computer on the AP and wired computer on the Station
This version seems to have resolved my 2VAP's on the 5GHz band when using WDS Station
Working rock solid so far - I know it's a crazy config but it lets me extend an isolated guest VAP and have isolated network for wired IoT to protect internal IP's. Once I know it's solid for a bit I can remove the 5GHz guest on the WDS Station and just rename all the SSIDs on the guest side to the same and let the client pick one, but right now I can see each SSID for every wireless connection (6 of them - 2 WDS backhaul and 4 VAPs).

You are probably referring to wan_get_domain parameter in nvram that shows the ISP domain name in router status page. It will also pass this on to DHCP clients if you select WAN for used domain under DHCP server setup on the Services -> Services tab in the webUI. There are a couple of ways to pass domain name information to clients either via dnsmasq additional options or LAN domain name in webUI. The DNSMasq wiki is still in need of a re-write / major edit overhaul. If you input anything into the LAN domain that is anything with a "." in it, prepend the domain name with a "." (e.g. .home.arpa) or problems may occur. _________________ "Life is but a fleeting moment, a vapor that vanishes quickly; All is vanity"

I couldn't get any client IP addresses with "home.arpa" entered there on Windows, wasn't checking any of the non-Windows clients or mobile devices, but that is what I ran into. I just happened to check this as I hadn't employed that change yet. Seems kind of counter-productive to have ignore WAN dns and domain name if it's not being completely ignored without further intervention elsewhere in the webUI, but I think I already knew about this and had forgotten #proofyouneverstoplearningwithddwrt
Was that recent? I've had home.arpa and Ignore WAN DNS checked, and no issues at all. Hmmm.... _________________ Netgear R9000 X10
