I have an ar300m lite.
I want to be able to use tethering, cable, and repeater at different times. It appears that the file /etc/config/network is overwritten at times. In particular, after having got easy-tether configured, if I later plug the Ethernet cable into my home router, then the configuration I had set up for the ‘wan’ interface gets modified and so I can’t easily go back to the tether.
To use tether again, what I have to do is, keep a copy of the /etc/config/network file on my laptop, use winscp to write it back to the gl router and then reboot the gl router. Then I can use easytether again.
If I switch back to repeater mode (after unplugging the usb to my phone) then it works, so it’s not clobbering the ‘wan’ entry in that case.
Does anyone have a better idea? Can’t there be more than one ‘wan’ type of entry so it knows to use easy tether when I want and if a cable is plugged in use the Ethernet. It appears that it’s sharing the ‘wan’ entry for cable and easy-tether.
