This is slightly off topic, but only slightly since OpenWrt is Linux
based. And I know there are a number of clued up OpenWrt users on this
I have my OpenWrt (WRT54GL) box running as a wireless bridge now, but
one thing I wanted to change is to have the wifi interface use a static
IP instead of DHCP. The configuration seems pretty straight forward, but
when I put it in place I was no longer able to access the box from the
wireless side. When I plugged into the LAN side of things, everything
seemed okay, but when I looked at the routing table I noticed that the
default gateway was using vlan0 (LAN) instead of eth1 (wifi). Of course,
from the LAN side it cannot access the default gateway.
Anybody have any idea where this is being set? I've been looking through
the init scripts, but haven't been able to spot anything yet.
