Dd wrt dhcp forwarder
Dd-wrt dnsmasq setup and local dns
I have two dd-wrt units, one that acts as a switch (connected via EoP) and the other that acts as an access point (connected by CAT5e). Clients connected to the AP can see the whole network, but those connected to the router can only see clients that are also connected to the router (except the two dd-wrt devices).
Connecting a cable from a LAN port on the main router to the WAN port on the AP, thus leaving DHCP/dnsmasq and other services disabled, is the correct way to mount a second router (even if it’s just operating as an AP) behind a first router.
I understand you’ve seen the opposite advice (connecting a LAN port to another LAN port) a lot on the internet, but I assume it’s wrong. I have many examples of this setup at work and at home, all of which were built using DD-WRT routers (and without them).
Using the switch as an AP and disabling the router’s 2.4GHz wireless (while leaving the 5.0GHz enabled) solved the problem. Now every AP can completely discover my network (including the 5.0GHz from the router).
Dd-wrt client mode setup
DD-WRT is mounted on both of my routers. The first router (ROUTER A) is the DHCP server and is linked to the WAN (TP-Link ARCHER-C7 v2 running Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r41686 std (12/10/19) ROUTER B (Belkin F7D3301 DD-WRT v24-sp2 mega) is connected to ROUTER A via ethernet to the WAN port, which in DD-WRT is set to be a LAN port (because I needed all five ports for LAN). ROUTER B is configured as a DHCP Forwarder with WAN disabled and the Gateway and DHCP server set to ROUTER A’s internal IP address.
I’d like to set up a guest network on a different subnet (e.g., 192.168.0.xx for the main network and 192.168.2.xx for the guest network) that users who connect to ROUTER A or ROUTER B wirelessly can access. That is, I want both routers to provide wireless connectivity to a main network and a guest network, with ROUTER A (ideally) serving both networks’ DHCP (but that is not a requirement).
NOTE: Currently, both ROUTER A and ROUTER B have internet connectivity and share it via ethernet and wifi. ROUTER A also has a functioning Guest Network on a separate subnet, but it is not useful due to location issues.
Dhcp forwarder for jabber clients
I’m running kong ddwrt on a Netgear nighthawk r7000. I recently purchased a pi-hole and configured my router to serve as a DHCP forwarder. The router itself seems to be unable to connect to the internet when I do this. It tells me I have a bad address when I run commands like ping or ddup. Please let me know if there are any other settings that need to be updated in order for this to function properly. Here’s a path to an album where you can see the latest settings. 12 responses 67 percent sharesavehidereport Voted up This discussion has been closed.

Setting up guest wifi on dd-wrt
Create a custom domain name and PTR record – assigns the IPv4 address 192.168.1.23 and the IPv6 address fdce::23 to the domain name mylaptop and creates the required reverse records.
If your domain’s mail server is behind a firewall (and therefore has split-horizon for your own domain), you will need to persuade it that it is the authoritative mail server for your domain.
The interface list is typically used to assign each dnsmasq section to a specific interface, while the instance option is used to assign sections like dhcp, host, and so on to a specific dnsmasq instance.
When the —interface option is used, dnsmasq adds the loopback interface to the interface list to listen by default; thus, the loopback interface must be omitted in one of the dnsmasq instances using the notinterface list.
