To clarify, I am NOT trying to use my router itself as the exit node. I am trying to use it so downstream devices use the exit node as their IP.
I posted a reply in this thread: The interface is connected, but the Internet can't be accessed - #30 by alzhao
Judging by the comments, it looks like this “internet can’t be accessed” message is related to Tailscale somehow. Here is the comment with all of my details:
All, I am getting a very similar error. I am also a Tailscale user. I was able to use my GL Beryl MT3000 flawlessly for months as a subnet router pointed to an exit node for months with no issue at all. I have done all of the standard Tailscale setup, etc. As I said it was working for months.
I recently moved and it stopped working. I had made no other changes to the router at all before it stopped working. Then I ran into an issue where using the Tailscale exit node bricked my internet. As soon as I turned this off it worked again. Though I never had to so this initially, I setup a firewall zone and interface like is mentioned here: Help to configure tailscale as a proxy service - Installing and Using OpenWrt - OpenWrt Forum
This fixed the issue of the Tailscale exit node completely killing my internet, but it makes no change to the external IP when I check whatismyip. I disabled mwan3, but that did nothing.
Now I am currently getting the “The interface is connected, but the Internet can’t be accessed.” error similar to what a lot of others here are getting, and similar to them my internet works fine without issue despite this error. It displays whether Tailscale is on or off. I ran the commands that were supplied above in this thread and this did not fix the issue. I’ve tried several different firmware versions,but am currently on 4.2.3 because that seemed like it was the most stable.
The only thing that I changed that caused this not to work was moving and connecting to a new modem. As you mentioned above, is that possibly what the issue is? You mentioned changing the WAN IP, but I can’t do this as it is not my Modem. Do I need to change the subnet route of the GLiNet and/or change the LAN IP from the default 192.168.8.1?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I manually installed version 4.4.5 and this fixed the no internet connection error message, but doesn’t fix any of my Tailscale issues.
