We’re at a campground and are trying to connect to the wireless signal. It’s not a captive portal. I can connect on my iPad but not using the router. When I connect, I get a BSSID but no IP address. I tried MAC clone but no success. I thought about using the IP address I get on my iPad but I can’t find where I can manually enter the WAN IP.
Suggestions on either setting IP manually or how to get the IP from the upstream router?
Ok, got it. I didn’t notice the ability to manually set the IP when initially connecting to the network. I also hadn’t thought to go into the LuCI interface. It’s now working, after cloning the MAC and the IP address from the iPad.
Question: I used LuCI to set the IP. When I go to another location to access a different network, will I need to reset the IP to Automatic or will the new network automatically use Default?
No, it looks like changing the IP address is for that connection only. We are now at a new site and it shows that I am using the DHCP client. All I had to do, besides connecting, is to change the MAC to Automatic.
