AR300M-lite as wifi client

didn’t find how to make ar300m-lite as wifi client, repeater mode works, but can’t get internet access via wan.port Anyone can direct me? thanks!

You can’t use the wan Port for internet unless you change it in the advance settings so use the Lan pot

Thanks for your comment, I have accessed advance setting, deleted wan port, add new interface to cover ethernet port “eth0”, then click “submit”, then “The submitted security token is invalid or already expired”

Anything wrong?

See: AR300M 2.27 firmware issue - #9 by PeacefulReason

it works great as wifi client. Very appreciate for your help!!

new issue, I marked “eth0” in interfaces-lan-Physical setting and “save & apply”, then can visit internet via wan port, but “eth0” always became unmarked after reboot.

I’m wondering if your WAN port is really gone and is still being configured on bootup and grabs eth0. From a stock config I suggest make WAN a bridge and then uncheck eth0 from the device instead of deleting. Then in LAN add eth0, then click Save & Apply.

If that doesn’t work. Paste the output from:

cat /etc/network/config

not working as what you said, the result of cat /etc/network/config:

cat: can’t open ‘/etc/network/config’: No such file or directory

oops /etc/config/network :slight_smile:

config interface ‘loopback’
option ifname ‘lo’
option proto ‘static’
option ipaddr ‘’
option netmask ‘’

config globals ‘globals’
option ula_prefix ‘fd9e:bcdd:758f::/48’

config interface ‘lan’
option type ‘bridge’
option proto ‘static’
option netmask ‘’
option ip6assign ‘60’
option hostname ‘GL-AR300M-a07’
option ipaddr ‘’
option _orig_ifname ‘eth1 wlan0’
option _orig_bridge ‘true’
option ifname ‘eth1’

config interface ‘wan’
option ifname ‘eth0’
option proto ‘dhcp’
option hostname ‘GL-AR300M-a07’
option metric ‘10’
option type ‘bridge’

config interface ‘wan6’
option ifname ‘eth0’
option proto ‘dhcpv6’
option type ‘bridge’
option reqaddress ‘try’
option reqprefix ‘auto’

config interface ‘wwan’
option proto ‘dhcp’
option metric ‘20’

ah ya, so wan and wan6 interface have eth0. deselect ‘bring up on boot’ on both and apply save.

then add eth0 to lan, apply & save


Thanks! tried many times, eth0 always unchecked after reboot. need to check eth0 every time, then begin to work.
