Is it possible to flip / program the WAN/LAN of the Brume 2 so they switch places? WAN becomes LAN and LAN becomes WAN?
Honestly I have zero idea, why GLInet chose to give WAN 2.5Gbit and LAN 1Gbit instead the other way around. It makes zero sense. You cant make any use of the 2.5GBit WAN, but the other way you totally could, if you use Multi-WAN (WAN 1Gbit + USB3 tethering) and then route it over a 2.5Gbit LAN.
There just seems to be the option to change WAN to LAN so you have two LAN. I am sure it would be possible to program the above though if GLinet would implement/allow it.
Thank you very much. Is that really all? Will this then automatically change the GLInet web interface too? That all settings flip? and everything else is working as if you just flipped wan and lan? just switch the lan cables and everything works as before? Nothing else to do or something not working anymore with doing this? All still working afterwards, VPN, Wireguard, firewall rules, status information in web interface and so on? If it is that easy, why is there no toggle button in the GLinet web interface to flip WAN/LAN. They need to give that option.
Well, then it is totally useless. Of course I want the GLInet web interface still work with everything. VPN both OpenVPN wireguard client and server, policies, firewall, routing, DHCP, Multi-WAN, EVERYTHING.
What meaning does the above change have if nothing is working then with it?
No, it is not. As I explained. Using Multi-WAN 1gbit + USB 3.0 tether with 4G/5G would be >= 2Gbit for example being used. So it totally makes sense WAN is 1gbit and LAN 2.5Gbit, not the other way around.
from what i’ve observed in the scripts in /usr/bin/ is that most is affected br-lan and br-wan(for flint2) or br-guest if these keeps remained the same I don’t think it would cause huge issues.
it will though if lan had br-lan.1 even though with the iptables wildcard for br-+ but I think this is because of nfttables, so if its only swapping eth0 and eth1 inside the bridges, I think it should be fine still.
yup you are right that is a possibility, I also edited it a little (also with location where most of the scripts are), I think the most important is to keep the bridge devices as how they are for the interfaces wan and lan, only swap the DSA devices in the bridges.
