I bought this router, I think it's a pos.

I flashed it with DDWRT in hopes that I can make it see sense. Looks good so far.

I just need 1 Main Wifi SSID on all radios and 1 guest on 2.4Ghz. Both with internet access but guest with no LAN access.

I followed a few guides and how tos linked in this forum, but no joy. The main Wifi and VAP connect fine, but no Internet.

So my current problem is around my gateway being on the LAN and not WAN port. Ideally the main wifi would just bridge to ethernet, no dhcp. The guest Wifi forward to the gateway with dhcp.

LAN: 10.0.0.0/24
GW: 10.0.0.1
DNS: 10.0.0.199
Bridged on LAN switch

GUEST: 192.168.128.0/24
GW: <VAP IF address>
DNS: 8.8.8.8
NAT forwarded to 10.0.0.1

I enabled the SSH feature and logged in last night. After the GUI being setup for MASQ NAT on GuestVAP... there are no PRE/POST routing rules inserted to IP tables. When I tried to add them manually they don't match the traffic they should.

How do I enable SysLog?

Thanks egc,

I got it working. It's a bit unstable while saving config changes which often sends it catatonic, but otherwise it's working fine.

Following your link and following the basic Wifi setup guide, then the "Guest Wifi no WAN" guide did the trick. The NAT firewall rules need to be added manually due to LAN port internet gateway, which was my missing piece.

Regards,
Paul

I have had 2 of these routers, the first one i put a hammer through in frustration as the stock firmware is so slow and hangs.

The second since flashing with dd-wrt its been fantastic.
