I have a v7 wrt54g connected to my mesh node. This is allowing me to access the mesh via standard WiFI connection. I am able to bring up internet this way no problem.

In the past with the same set up I was able to pull up the localnode and meshh status pages the same way. I no longer can bring up the localnode on my WiFi connected device. Is this a change in the new firmware? if so it ruins 98% of what we planned to use the mesh for. Is there a workaround? any suggestions?

Can you describe your configuration? It sounds like something like this:

AP ----- MESHNODE(gateway) ----- Internet

or is it more like

AP ----- MESHNODE <<<<<     >>>>> MESHNODE(gateway) ----- Internet

I did something similar to the second arrangement on Wednesday and had no issues going to http://localnode:8080/ as well as internet sites.

Are you able to go to the localnode page when directly plugged in or if the internet connection isn't plugged into the router?

Additional to the questions from Chris... 1) Are you using the WRT54Gv7 as a dump AP and plugging between the LAN ports of the v7 and the mesh node, or are you using the v7 as a NAT/router and plugging the WAN port of the v7 into the LAN ports of the mesh node? 2) What are you using for DNS servers on your wifi connected host/device? If you're using something other than the mesh node as your DNS server, the "localnode" name isn't going to work. Have you tried ? If that works and "localnode..." doesn't, then you've likely got a DNS issue to resolve. If neither method works then you've probably got a layer-3 network issue to resolve. -KY9K/Brian
