Just installed OpenWRT 12.09 in my router, but became a little confused about interfaces/bridges/vlans.
After my first boot, I logged in and set my root password, so I used Luci to activate my Wi-Fi, and took me a little to figure out that I could bridge Wi-Fi with LAN to get access to the internet. But I ended up with two problems:
- The DHCP addresses are been provided by my ISP (which is bad since I have to pay an extra fee for each IP)
- I can't block SHH access from the Internet/WAN, so my router is a bit vulnerable.
How should I configure—preferably by Luci—to do the following:
- DHCP provided by this router to my Internal devices, with resolving of DNS
- My external address (LAN/eth0) provided by the ISP modem (so I can't simple block port 68 in this interface)
- Properly configure my interfaces so I can allow SSH only on internal (WAN/radio0) interface
Which and why I should choose to use bridge or VLAN? This article, doesn’t explain it, nor provide any clue.
Some notes: - I'm a Gentoo Linux user, so I consider myself a good learner, but haven't yet found any good references for OpenWRT. - My device is TP-Link TL-MR3020 by the way it has only one LAN/eth0 interface and one wirelss/radio0 one.
Update: Here are some of my config files to review; tl;dr
