Hi everyone,

Foreword : freebox is a french modem/router with an associated media player. Usually these are directly connected together by ethernet or a supplied pair of BPL adapters. I understood these communicate over a tagged VLAN 100, with specific IP subnet 192.168.27.x

I have two Archer C5 running r27858, one connected to the router by LAN port of Archer C5 #1, media player on LAN port of Archer C5 #2
#1 and #2 must be linked by wifi (5GHz preferably), and I want to ensure the VLAN100 connection betwween these freeboxes (BPL wont work, dont know why...)

Common configuration of both C5 :
DHCP forwarder
WAN off
gateway, DNS, DHCP server set to router IP
Advanced routing : router

And on #1
WDS AP

#2
WDS Station

On another ethernet cable on #2 I can access to the internet and all other clients of LAN/WLAN (computers, NAS, printer...) so WDS bridging seems OK.

On #1 I ran by telnet
Code:
vconfig add ath1 100
vconfig add eth1 100
ifconfig eth1.100 192.168.27.14 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.27.255
brctl addbr br100
brctl addif br100 ath1.100
brctl addif br100 eth1.100
brctl addif br100 ath1.sta1
ifconfig ath1.100 up
ifconfig eth1.100 up
ifconfig br100.100 up
ifconfig br100 up


On #2
Code:
vconfig add ath1 100
vconfig add eth1 100
ifconfig eth1.100 192.168.27.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.27.255
brctl addbr br100
brctl addif br100 ath1.100
brctl addif br100 eth1.100
ifconfig ath1.100 up
ifconfig eth1.100 up
ifconfig br100.100 up
ifconfig br100 up


Failure, no association between the devices...
I added on #1
Code:
vconfig add ath1.sta1 100
brctl addif br100 ath1.sta1.100


Still nothing...
I tried on both C5
- switch dynamic interface to "LAN&WLAN"
- Services -> DNSMasq disabled

Still nothing.

Any idea?
Should it not be sufficient to establish a connection

Other question: How can I associate the whole 192.168.27.x subnet to VLAN 100?
