BATMAN-ADV


#1

Hi,

 

I would like to experiment with BATMAN-ADV to create a mesh network.

Are there any GL-iNet routers with mesh support pre-installed?

Which routers would you recommend?


#2

Hi,

 

Looking at the openvpn tutorial I noticed a mesh icon in the images you posted:

What router is this and what mesh protocol it is using?

Hi, we had a mesh UI but not finished.

To use mesh, just insall batman-adv using opkg and you can configure, manually!


#4

Will it work on any GL-iNet router?

 


#5

BATMAN-Adv works for ath9k and ath10k driver, so it will work for AR150, MiFi, AR300M, AR750, Domino Core


#6

Any insight on the mesh part of the webgui readiness?

 

I just ordered 2 AR150 routers and I’ll do some experimenting when they arrive and report back.

@Jose_Leal, I can send you a firmware with BATMAN but I still don’t know how the UI will go. It is really not easy to design a good UI.


#8

Hi Alzhao, are you able to send me the firmware with BATMAN installed? I have been struggling to get this up and running manually on the AR300M-Lite (despite it being supposidly simple).


#9

I only have firmware for AR150. It will need a little time tocompile for AR300M.

I don’t have time this week. I bookmarked this post


#10

Mesh networking support in Openwrt/LEDE is growing rapidly and there are alternatives to Batman available for experimenting.
However if you have a specific requirement for a plug and play working mesh then we have firmware available for purchase for any model AR300M (and pre flashed hardware if required).

@Alzhao - did you get BATMAN working on AR300M-lite?

sorry I never got a time to compile BATMAN firmware.

Sorry for that.
