Since I’m playing with OpenWRT on my home router I thought that I have to find a way to use it as an SSH tunnel. I could only log in with the root account and I didn’t want to use that. I wanted to use a different account, so that in case of compromise it wouldn’t bring any damage to my system. Continue reading “SSH Tunneling in OpenWRT”
I was checking the logs on my Asus RT-N16 running OpenWRT and i had this one repeting itself continously:
Thu Jul 3 18:54:52 2014 daemon.warn dnsmasq-dhcp: DHCP packet received on eth0.2 which has no address
I’m running a PPPoE internet connection on my router, and others doing so faced the similar problem.
The solution is in the file that handles configuration for both DNS and DHCP on OpenWRT, which is located in /etc/dnsmasq.conf
The quick fix for this is to exclude your interface which the PPPoE line is connected to, from DHCP requests. This can be done by opening the file and adding the following line:
Or directly using echo:
echo “except-interface=eth0.2” >> /etc/dnsmasq.conf
Replace “eth0.2” with the interface that is popping in the logs.
Two summers ago i decided to roll out my first summer project for my home, which was a TP-Link TL-WR740N running OpenWRT with some small addons, such as dinamic DNS and wake-on-lan. This summer i decided that i should extend and improve my network a bit. Continue reading “Extending and improving my home network”
My networking teacher said that it would be cool to turn one of the routers that we have been playing with (Asus RT-N16) into an AP so that the class would connect to it instead of the schools network nearest AP.
Why do that? So we can see who is accesing what, get some statistics on that and probably to make a “wall-of-shame” where we could write the students usernames and passwords.
As i was going back home this summer, i thought – why not do some applied networking at home? After playing with the Asus RT-N16 router and OpenWRT in 2nd semester i thought that i should buy one of the cheapest OpenWRT-comaptible routers and start networking.
