Frequently Asked Questions

What hardware is supported?

A table with hardware supported by Gluon can be found on the OpenWrt Wiki. If you want to find out if your device can potentially be supported have a look at Adding hardware support for detailed hardware requirements.

Why does DNS not work on the nodes?

Gluon nodes will ignore the DNS server on the WAN port for everything except the mesh VPN, which can lead to confusion.

All normal services on the nodes exclusively use the DNS server on the mesh interface. This DNS server must be announced in router advertisements (using radvd or a similar software) from one or more central servers in meshes based on batman-adv. If your mesh does not have global IPv6 connectivity, you can setup your radvd not to announce a default route by setting the default lifetime to 0; in this case, the radvd is only used to announce the DNS server.
