Subject :043.wrt54g firmware Help problem and solution - setting up a Mesh Gateway


I noticed that the PDF documentation to convert WRT54G(L) routers is out-of-date,  In fact, after re-boot you must access the MESH node as 172.27.0.1:8080 not as localnode:8080 in Windows 7.

Also, when setting up a mesh node gateway, all you need to do is "check" the "Mesh Gateway" box under "Setup" on the mesh node you plan to connect to the WAN.  In fact, I am now writing this comment through a two-node  HSMM-MESH, not typical WiFi router!

Success!

Hi Ken,

Im wondering if there is something in Win7 DNS that is causing it. I usually dont have this problem with my Win7 Laptop. Once in a great while though, I will run across it where i need to go in via IP and not DNS.

I may do some extra checking on this here soon, and of course report back.

I think that might be caused by having used the same PC/browser on a non-mesh link first, and then hooking up to mesh without rebooting (or doing whatever it takes to get Win7 to forget the past.)

However, I never really investigated it any deeper, so I might be totally wrong.

I'm not part of the development team, so take what I say with a grain of salt. I'm also easily confused.

I've had this problem before.

The solution I found that works is that in your Windows browser, if you want to type localnode:8080, you must type it as http://localnode:8080/. Without the http, it won't work. (At least with IE9)

If that doesn't work, usually an ipconfig /release & ipconfig /renew will fix the problem (you'd still have to type http://:8080/ if you didn't want to use the IP Address)
