I have a Beryl AX3000 and would like to add it to my existing network as an AdGuard Home server (no routing function).
My current router is a very powerful mesh router with one node and my whole house is covered.
My current network is at 10.0.0.0/24 with my current router being at 10.0.0.1.
I tried the following with no success.
Reset the Beryl’s firmware, plug the Beryl’s WAN port into a LAN port of the current mesh router.
Set the Beryl network mode to access point.
Give it a static IP of 10.0.0.10 both on the Beryl and the Mesh router.
Turn off the Beryl’s radio.
Reboot the Beryl.
After reboot, the Beryl comes back up, shows that it is still in AP mode but no longer has the option to see or select AdGuard Home or even any VPN option.
What would be the proper way to achieve the goal.
I wouldn’t mind getting the Brume 2 as well as it has an explicit « Bridge » mode.
I was looking at the reviews on Amazon and found the following review from a user:
« I’ve been able to shift those services to the Brume 2, which sits between my Xfinity modem (in bridge mode) and my eero WiFi router
This greatly simplifies my setup and requires less maintenance. AdGuard works just as well as Pi-hole, and having a GUI interface for Wireguard administration is a plus »
I wonder how that person was able to achieve « my » goal as I was told in this forum that bridging would disable DHCP and DNS (needed for AdGuard Home)
Just tested my configuration.
If I leave the Beryl on router mode as i was advised by wcs2228, there isn’t (or I don’t know how to get to it) a way to remove DHCP.
So, the Beryl, sitting at 10.0.0.10 does filter the traffic of all clients joining the main wireless router but after 10-15 I get a warning message on the Beryl’s admin page saying that there’s a IP LAN conflict and to select another subnet.
I did select a range of just 5 allowable IP on the Beryl 10.0.0.20 to 10.0.0.25. That range does not overlap with the range I’ve selected on the main router.
