Hello community, I have a MT300N-v2. I’d like to add a USB wifi dongle to the router for the repeater feature. I’m running openwrt-mt300n-v2-3.026-0729 firmware.
First question is will this increase my throughput speed when connected to the repeater?
I’ve tried to configure 2 different dongles (Asus ralink 28xx based and a generic mediatek mt7601 based)
The router’s logs appear to see the devices, but when I try to add an interface I dont see a new one, or I dont know what it’s called to add a custom interface. Really, I dont know what I’m doing here.
The one thing I do notice, is that after I add the software package, scanning networks no longer displays any results (or the box that the networks would be listed in) but the connection still works if I previously associated a wireless network to the repeater.
Does anyone have any advice or a step by step guide to help me out?
