i just bought this TP-LINK TL-WA901ND v2 access point,
loaded it with openwrt based on the link here,

i telnet and set my password, and now i could ssh into the AP using KiTTY,

let me detail my network environment,

internet is a 4g modem with lan port,
ip address

i got several windows machines connected to it, their ip are manual set,
range from to

those machine got windows drive shares without password (due to third-party software limitation)

what i intend to do are like following:

1. offer free internet access through wifi (using TP-LINK TL-WA901ND device)
2. wireless clients will not be allow to connect LAN clients

i read and tried but still fail, been reset the AP for several times,
any help?

the setting

root@OpenWrt:~# cat /etc/config/network

config interface 'loopback'
        option ifname 'lo'
        option proto 'static'
        option ipaddr ''
        option netmask ''

config globals 'globals'
        option ula_prefix 'fd37:91b7:2080::/48'

config interface 'lan'
        option ifname 'eth0'
        option type 'bridge'
        option proto 'static'
        option ipaddr ''
        option netmask ''
        option gateway  ''
        option dns      ''
        option ip6assign '60'

i set the lan to, now i able to ping and online inside ssh,

what is the 'bridge' at lan means?
and how should i set the wireless?
