I have a GL-MT300A currently being used as a repeater in WISP mode. My main Linksys router doesn’t support WDS, but I’m using the MT300A to connect a device having only a wired Ethernet wirelessly to my router and out to the Internet. Since the device doesn’t connect to any others in my house, there isn’t an issue with it being on a different network.
I’m thinking of getting a WiFi mesh system to improve my WiFi coverage but found out the one I’m considering doesn’t have a DLNA server capability which my current Linksys router provides and I use to stream music with Rokus and a SmartTv. Since I would no longer need the MT300A for its current use (the device it supports now would plug directly into one of the mesh units) I’m wondering if it would be possible to use it as a wired DLNA server? I have miniDLNA installed, but currently the DLNA server is only visible to devices on the MT300A’s WLAN…
Would this be as simple as configuring the MT300A’s switch to select between Router or Bridge modes, setting the switch to Bridge mode, connecting the LAN Ethernet port on the MT300A to a LAN port on a mesh unit, configuring miniDLNA in advanced settings to use the Ethernet LAN port (VLAN Interface: “eth0.1” (lan) ), and turning off the WiFi? or am I missing something?
Thanks for the help.
