I just picked up a GL-MT300N-V2, such a powerful little router in a tiny package! I’m tempted to grab one more to play around with, and a spare to keep in my bag as a valuable networking tool… lol
Anyway, Here’s my question… I have a Netgear Unite Explore 4G LTE modem/hotspot which currently serves as my main internet connection. (rural area with good coverage) I’ve found that I get much better speeds with this modem when tethering via USB. Initially I bought a router that advertised USB tethering as one of it’s features, with plans to tether the LTE modem directly to the router. (I bought cheap Asus RT-N66U) Unfortunately there was issues with that router and I was unable to use it in that configuration. So I decided to get the GL-MT300N-V2 to tether the modem to, and then plug into the WAN port on my router. This works great! Everything works without issue and I’m getting the sames speeds on the internet as when I tether the modem directly to a PC.
What I want to do, if possible, is set up a bridge in the GL-MT300N-V2, so there’s no routing or NAT happening there. I would prefer it to be “transparent” even, so the main router sees the LTE modem on it’s WAN port, instead of seeing the GL-MT300N-V2. I’m not very well versed with OpenWRT, and didn’t see any way to do this in the GL.inet interface. I poked around in LuCI a little, but didn’t want to “break” anything so I thought I’d ask here.
FYI, I did search around a bit and couldn’t find an answer in these forums, so if it’s already posted, my apologies for asking again. A quick link to that info would be appreciated though.
