I'm a complete networking beginner, trying to install OpenWRT on a TPLink 703N, following these instructions : http://wiki.xinchejian.com/wiki/Install_OpenWRT_on_TPlink_WR703N
Having installed and OpenWRT and configured it as outlined on that page, we're trying to see the internet from it (in order to run opkg etc). We have the TPLink connected to our router/modem via ethernet cable and can ssh to it from the other machines on the same network.
However we can't a) see the TPLink itself as a wifi router. (Doesn't look like wifi is currently enabled) b) see the internet from inside it (to run opkg etc.)
Can anyone give some clues (in fairly layman's language) of how to debug this? What kind of problems should we look for? And how should we resolve them?
