Whats the SSH details to use so we can set dashboard uci param?

Firmware flashed on the NS2M nicely - nice feature using the last 6 digits of the MAC as the default SSID.

Thanks for clarifying, How does the node know which dashboard to checkin to?


a)
look for the IP addresses assigned to your mesh-points by examining the "lease" table of your DHCP server (usually embedded into your xDSL router)

b)
assume that one mesh-point had an IP address as 192.168.0.123, point your browser to:

c)
you will be prompted for credentials, enter admin as User Name and meshroot as Password (in some cases enter m35hr00t where 00 are zeroes)

d)
you can inspect status, interfaces, log messages, processes and scan the air. Click on 'extras' tab to edit some settings (dashboard adress and network name)

e)
finally, enter your dashboard address (without

according the way you have arranged and installed the scripts inside /somewhere/lampp/htdocs directory in your dashboard server. As examples:
ip_of_lampp_server/meshroot-checkin2.php
ip_of_lampp_server/dashboard-minimal/meshroot-checkin2.php
ip_of_lampp_server/dashboard/meshroot-checkin2.php


f)
do not forget to start lampp/xampp on your dashboard server!

If you want change the default network-name then browse phpMyAdmin site by pointing your browser to the dashboard server, usually:
http://ip_of_lampp_server/phpmyadmin/
Then you have to add the new network to the network table, remember the 'id' value assigned to the just_added network by MySQL and edit the node table (field 'network_id').
You can add/delete networks and nodes just using phpMyAdmin web interface.

As said, you must have some knowledge about MySQL and phpMyAdmin...

Please, post here your dashboard screen-shots so to compare performances.

You must get the IP address assigned to the ethernet MAC address of the mesh devices only! Be careful: wifi clients (and therefore also your wireless pc, i-pad/i-phone,...) will also appear in the lease table.

It's the layer2 mesh, dude Smile

Ok. So here we are all checked in and meshed. Here are my observations:
I started of with both units plugged directly into the switch. Then I unpluged one of them for the switch so I have a ROOT and a NODE, however the next hop did not change from direct to show me the ROOT AP.

The units are currently in the same room about 15 ft (4.5 m) apart. Tonight I will move them further apart. Next add 2 more units, then some RS.

Configuration:
RS PRO
Mikrotik R52H
4.4 dbi Omni Antennas x2

That's not correct!
According to 802.11s terminology, mesh nodes can act as:

Mesh Point (MP)
implements the basic functionality of path selection and forwarding the traffic of other MPs. It might be used to interconnect two remote parts of the mesh cluster.

Mesh Access Point (MAP) - (i.e. 'repeater node' in Robin)
Same functionality as bare MP. Additionally, it serves as a legacy AP for the STA nodes. In simpler terms, it is an MP collocated with AP.

Mesh Portal (MPP) - (i.e. 'gateway node' in Robin)
Same functionality as bare MP or MAP Moreover, it is a gateway to the external network, e.g. Ethernet or WiMax. It is an MP collocated with a gateway.

That said, and since STP is not enabled, you can run only one MPP, or - better - you can't run multiple MPP attached to the same ethernet network: result is a loop!
I suggest to power off the mesh nodes and the switch then turn on the switch, plug and turn on the MPP and the MAPs.

Coming images will have STP enabled per default.

I must be doing something wrong...
Flashed 1 bulletM2 and 1 picoM2 but both exhibit the same behavior:
Both acquire an IP address (that I see in the DHCP table along with the MAC of their LAN interface), both broadcast the last 3 hex digits of their WLAN MAC and both (when I enter a browser) display the 403 forbidden message when I try to login.
I can do ssh to them, but admin/meshroot does not work.
Any clues?

Thanks for your help,
ted

Thanks for your help.
Just tried 192.168.1.100 but exhibits same behavior.
(403 Forbidden on http port, nothing on 8080).
Could it be that is a M2bullet?
I see you tried on routerstation hardware. Again, pico had the same behavior (sharing the same hardware as the bullet).

I'll see if I can get hold of a couple of NS's to try same firmware and will let you know.

Thanks,
ted

OK, so far I tried on the same network but different subnet.
All I am left with is to try on an isolated network and will report.

Hi Antonio

meshroot does not use ath5k but old good madwifi in bg-firmware (ah-demo mode) and ath9k in 802.11n (adhoc mode) and 802.11s (mesh mode) based firmwares. As far as I know, mixed modes networks can't cooperate.


Why did you choose madwifi?

Would it not be a good idea to implement ath5k?

yes it could be... but we prefer focus on ath9k since ath5k only supports (Aheros) 802.11a/bg divices.
In other words, we do not think further developments on madwifi/ath5k based firmwares.
