I could use some help for properly configuring my MT300a.
I’ve got it configured as a WISP repeater connected via WiFi to my main router for internet access. I have my Synology NAS hardwired via ethernet into the LAN port on the MT300a. I frequently do file transfers from my laptop to the NAS for backup, and right now I have to do it using WiFi. I’d like to be able to use an ethernet cable from my laptop into the WAN port on the MT300a to make the transfers faster and more reliable.
I know this is possible from my research, but I’m too much of a novice to make it happen. I believe I can create a VLAN, but I haven’t been able to make it work yet. Is it doable from LuCI, or do I need to use the command line?
I know I can just use an ethernet switch, but I’d like to learn how to use the tool I have better!
Also, can this easily be undone for when I take the unit on my travels and need the WAN port to function normally.
