I’m trying to figure out if I can turn an IPFIRE APU box as cabled access point/range extender. I have a LAN cable available and thought to use the BLUE and GREEN interface bridged and with dynamic DHCP.
I tried and unfortunately
the system doesnt pass the DHCP to any device connected to the ipfire box
if I set my device (laptop) with manual IP to match the home network it will still connect and browse ipfire management pages but won’t be able to surf the network.
I also though to use the red zone for the cable (line in) and blue/Green Zone as usual to broadcast but with my ipfire knowledge and understanding this will create a separate trunk of network which I’d like to avoid.
