Topic: package 'travelmate', a wlan connection manager for travel router

The content of this topic has been archived between 29 Mar 2018 and 22 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Update:

Openwrt development pretty much stopped in April/May 2016 when practically all active core developers left for LEDE - best is to head over to LEDE, stable release 17.01 or current LEDE snapshots.

The active travelmate LEDE-forum thread with download links can be found here

Have fun!
Dirk

Up to now I've answered all queries ... please try again (I've tagged my email in the first post) - thanks.

travelmate is now in trunk - see first post!

Dirk, please correct me if I'm wrong -- does it search available networks with iw/iwinfo to scan for nearby SSIDs and if it matches one of the SSIDs defined as STA in the wireless interfaces, only then it attempts to enable STA interface and connect?
Is there any AP downtime for when it's trying to connect to STA?
What if the SSIDs match, but the key is incorrect, is there any AP downtime?
What if the higher priority STA can't connect, would it automatically jump to the next STA?
Finally, have you talked to hnyman about luci app for travelmate yet?

that's correct, even the "up" sta interface appears down, cause all changes are uncommitted (in uci terms) and will be reverted directly after a successful connect.

there is a single, really small ap outage during >network reload<, nothing more.

same applies to this situation (for multiple times). Therefore you can set "trm_maxretry" (default 3) to configure how many times should travelmate try to connect to a certain uplink.

yes, travelmate goes sequentially through the configured wireless stations.

stangri wrote:

no, not yet. travelmate is really an early bird for further testing ... smile

Thank you Dirk, fantastic work!

Thanks, you're welcome! Meanwhile Hannu provided a luci frontend for travelmate, many, many thanks for that! cool

Dirk,

I have a few follow up questions.
1. The fact that I add wwan to the wan firewall zone would not mess up anything when I'd want to use my router with travelmate disabled in a proper router mode, would it?
2. For the proper Wireless Repeater mode to work I also used to create stabridge interface, run relayd and have a hotplug script which would update stabridge ip address with the wwan ip address. Is that something that travelmate does automatically or do I still need to do all that before running travelmate?

Thanks again!

a disabled/not used wan interface should make no harm

I don't fully understand your setup (never used relayd so far) ... travelmate only works with an existing wireless config, no interface creation or other magic changes in network config.

So I have two APs and two STAs defined in wireless config and yet travelmate complains:

Hi Stan,
please post your wireless config ... or send it by email - thanks!

Please try travelmate 0.2.7, this version no longer relies on static ifnames in wireless config.

Dirk,
As I didn't find the prebuilt 0.2.7 package, I just updated the /usr/bin/travelmate.sh file with the 0.2.7 from github and it doesn't error out anymore, however it doesn't bring up STA either. The connection defined in the first (disabled) STA iface in my config matches existing/available WiFi network (from my main router), however I don't see the script trying to bring it up.

Could it be because of the guest wlan?

Looks OK for me ...

Could it be because of the guest wlan?

a guest wlan on a travel router, really!? smile
If it still not working please send your sanitized network & wireless config via email and I'll try to reproduce that. BTW you could set 'trm_debug' '1' in travelmate config to enable script debugging ...

Khm, dunno how I missed that line. However that STA iface showed up as disconnected in Luci, so I didn't check it it worked or not. I'll do some more testing and let you know.

Hehe, guess what, I've had my STAs assigned to lan interface rather than wwan. I'll try again and post back.

Still no cigar. If I'm watching the Network/Interfaces page in Luci I believe I can see WWAN going up and showing the mac address and uptime very briefly, and then it disconnects. Let me know if you prefer to switch to e-mail or continue here.

BTW, it shows it tried to change disabled=0, however in uci show wireless both STAs are still disabled=1.

Hi Stan,

I can reproduce those issues and will fix that with the next 0.3.x update - I'll send you a pre-release via email for further testing (but this will take some time!).

Hi Dirk.
I wanted to know if I should use the travelmate package in STA+AP only. Because when I used it on my my Linkit 7688 module in its STA mode the device started.

STA mode only? Did you use a wired connection to access your router?
Anyway, I have to rework travelmate a bit ... please wait for the next 0.3.x release.

Thanks for your patience!
Dirk

My bad. I meant the device started hanging in STA mode

On new years eve I've released 0.3.0 ... the AP/STA detection troubles should have been fixed. Also travelmate switched to procd interface triggers and no longer polls in the background.

I keep seeing a message in LuCi which says "your hardware does not support multi-SSID". Does this mean i will not be able to use travelmate?

I'm a beginner at this.
