I’ve added the following route to OpenWrt1 but it doesn’t work after I rebooted the host. Please advise.

NEW ROUTE

config route
        option interface lan
        option target 172.16.0.3
        option gateway 10.0.0.2

I guess:

config route
        option interface lan2
        option target 172.16.0.0/24
        option gateway 10.0.0.2

The discussion might have continued from here.
