that should display info, including rssi, for all non-wep open APs. It's currently a bit flakey (doesn't always return what's expected. occasionally it will return full scan results, even though we just scanned a single BSSID), I haven't yet figured out why this is happening. If I can get it to play nicely, and be stable, then it will be easy to return the ssid of the strongest open signal. After that its just a matter of associating with that AP via 'wl'.
Can anyone with experience scripting wl tell me why this isn't working as expected?
Ok Excuse my extreme noobness but this FASCINATES me
I want to make sure I understand this properly. What your wanting to do is REVERSE the wifi on the router. instead of the router feeding its wired internet to users over wifi you want to DERIVE that internet INBOUND from the wireless ?? like conecting one router to another ?
I assume if you also want local lan wifi this means 2 routers ? (do I have my ideas straight so far ?)
OK this fascinates me because we do a lot of camping. I want to BUY wifi access (yearly its not too bad) since it works at most of the campgrounds we use.
My idea is this. the wifi is restricted to one mac address I want that mac address to be a router. that router would be visible to the paid wifi service. I link that router to another router that is configured normally.
Now I can jack in as many machines as I want into the normal router as usually and get the the internet that the 1st router is connected to.
DO I have that right ? That would be awesome! I plan to build at least 2 computers into the camper and 2 sometimes 3 of us have laptops - I plan to network everything anyway for multiplayer and content streaming. being able to access the internet on any of the machines would be REALLY nice :-) I could even see mounting a tablet computer (old fijitsu 233mhz) by the door with live satellite radar and weather info etc.
chuck: do you have an sd card? or a writable jffs dir? if so i can definitely bang out a solution for you. been busy lately, ill look into scripting this for stock firmware as well. (jffs or mmc would enable you to grab microperl, which would make this a breeze)
i have pulled wholeflash,cfe,nvram and kernel off of the V2 and V3 of these and would like to make them available to download ... with out registering ... and would like to make a link to them in the Wiki under the WR850G debricking. _________________ WRT54G,GS v1.1, V2, V3 V4, V5
