I have an unused GT784WNV that I would like to put into service as a wireless extender. But before I get that far, I am attempting to take baby steps as, even though I have a decent background in computers in general, I get stupid real fast when it comes to networking.
According to this...
"The MAC address is initialized to all zeroes, which prevents normal config. It can be set manually, after which wireless works."
I've been reading posts and trying all kinds of config changes for 3 days and I'm ready to wave the white flag.
I have flashed the OpenWrt firmware (many, many times actually) but I cannot seem to get wifi working!!!
I say that based on the fact that the ifconfig command does not show a wireless network and when I "scan" for wireless networks in the luci gui I see nothing.
I am working under the assumption that wifi will work based on the wiki. But I really, REALLY need help with manually setting the MAC address. I think this is where I am getting hung up.
I've put "option macaddr" and "option disabled '0'" in the /etc/config/wireless file but nothing is working. I'll gladly post my network and wireless files but they are basically right out of the fresh install with the changes I mention above.
If anyone is king enough to assist it would be *greatly* appreciated.
