30. Telnet to 192.168.0.2, Username = "root", Password = "password" and execute the following command: "echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/br0/proxy_arp"
Newbie here. First, my thanks to Ratty for posting instructions that actually worked with my TL-WR1043ND!
The only problem I had was with step 30 (above). When I tried to telnet into the router, I was able to input the username (root), but when the password prompt came up it wouldn't let me enter a password. No matter what I typed, the cursor just sat there blinking. And if I just hit <enter> I'd get an error message.
Can anyone give me some guidance on how to telnet into the router to do step 30, or help me figure out why I can't input a password?
after 4 days unsuccessful testing client bridge (i need repeater bridge but not possible on my device) on wr741nd-ddwrt, i found solution: install Gargoyle firmware v1.13.10, very intuitive and easy configuration (as repeater bridge), it works perfectly! Total time spent: 5 min.!
I LOVE YOU!!!
I messed around the whole f*****g day trying to set up my TP-LINK TL-WR941ND with dd-wrt as a repeater for my existing AP, could't get it to work at ALL. Tried everything... I was near a mental breakdown
Then I saw your post, reverted back from dd-wrt to stock firmware, flashed Gargoyle and had what I wanted within 5 minutes.
It's ridiculous that with all those options and stuff that dd-wrt brings, you still can't get the most basic sh*t like this to work.
If anyone could assist me, I have susccesfully bridged the 1043nd to the orignal router, however when clients try to connect to the bridge they can not obtain an ip and cannot connect to the router, however the bridge does work as a wired bridge and I am able to obtain an ip, it just does not want to work for the wireless.
