Hi! I am wondering partly out of curiosity & to make sure Ive set up my Beryl AX right as my technical knowledge is limited. I set up the Beryl AX in my apartment and its network mode is in Router mode. I then connected it to the internet via my apartment’s main wifi by Repeater. I also enabled Wireguard Client via AzireVPN and it is set up as a Global Proxy.
My goal with BerylAX is to have a private internet connection by connecting my devices to Beryl wifi as opposed to my apartment’s main wifi. With all this enabled, have I accomplished this?
Also out of curiosity, Im wondering how this actually works and how it routes traffic from my apartment’s main wifi to Beryl wifi, and what Beryl would show up as under my apartment’s wifi (if that makes sense)?
It sounds like you have accomplished that. To confirm, open whatismyipaddress.com and it should show different IP addresses between when WireGuard is turned on and turned off.
The Beryl establishes a bidirectional connection to the apartment main wifi router and the apartment main wifi router establishes a bidirectional connection to the Internet site. The apartment main wifi router will see the Beryl as a LAN client device.
I do not work for and I am not directly associated with GL.iNet
Can Beryl connect to the internet by itself? I thought it would need to connect by repeater to an existing wifi network for internet. If there’s an alternate route you’d recommend Id be super interested, thanks!
