Private WLANΒΆ

It is possible to set up a private WLAN that bridges the WAN port and is seperated from the mesh network. Please note that you should not enable mesh_on_wan simultaneously.

The private WLAN can be enabled through the config mode if the package gluon-luci-private-wifi is installed. You may also enable a private WLAN using the command line:

uci set wireless.wan_radio0=wifi-iface
uci set wireless.wan_radio0.device=radio0
uci set
uci set wireless.wan_radio0.mode=ap
uci set wireless.wan_radio0.encryption=psk2
uci set wireless.wan_radio0.ssid="$SSID"
uci set wireless.wan_radio0.key="$KEY"
uci set wireless.wan_radio0.disabled=0
uci commit

Please replace $SSID by the name of the WLAN and $KEY by your passphrase (8-63 characters). If you have two radios (e.g. 2.4 and 5 GHz) you need to do this for radio0 and radio1.

It may also be disabled by running:

uci set wireless.wan_radio0.disabled=1
uci commit
