Doing WRTs 25 and 28, both are on the VPN (best way to get in)--I'm testing out the two different SSIDs but the shared WDS_SSID, it seems to be working. Routing isn't quite working yet.

wl0_lazywds is off, but wl_lazywds was on--killed that

I think STP needs to be on (I've been hacking similarly on the Lemon Creek Glacier WRTs--I want to turn on STP up there. I think turning off all firewall is also a good idea...)

did chmod -x /etc/init.d/S35firewall and S60dnsmasq on SM_WRT_28

SM_WRT_25 is dhcp SSID:SMrouter2
SM_WRT_28 is nodhcp SSID:SMrouter5


root@SM_WRT_25:~# nvram set wl_lazywds=0
root@SM_WRT_25:~# nvram set lan_stp=1

With these mods, I can ping between both routers on all three subnets -- 137.229, 10.8, and 192.168.

beyond lan_stp do I need wifi_stp or wl_stp or wl0_stp? (or wds_stp?)

trying things...

root@SM_WRT_28:~# nvram show | grep gateway wan_gateway= wan_gateway_buf=

root@SM_WRT_28:~# nvram set wan_gateway=; nvram commit; reboot -- nope

root@SM_WRT_28:~# nvram set wan_proto="none"; nvram commit; reboot -- nope

root@SM_WRT_28:~# nvram set lan_gateway=; nvram commit; reboot -- yep!!

got ntpd going on SM_WRT_25. just did an

ipkg install openntpd

and then edited /etc/ntpd.conf

root@SM_WRT_25:/etc/init.d# cat /etc/ntpd.conf 
# use a random selection of 8 public stratum 2 servers
# see http://twiki.ntp.org/bin/view/Servers/NTPPoolServers
# servers pool.ntp.org

( is ntp.alaska.edu which is sitting at NIST in Colorado)

THEN, Nick, Josh, Bill, and Veronica decided to head up Lemon Creek, so I gave them SM_WRT_28 to take up to replace the WRT in the met station. I did the following reconfiguration:


set the SSID to seamonster_met

set the WDS_SSID to seamonster

added the RELAY and ROOF MAC addresses to the WDS_MAC list
