I would like te posibilty have guest network for my guests at home.

THis network must not have access to my internal network but must have access to the internet.

I have similar whishes too:

separate wlan and LAN into different subnets with a (configurable) firewall inbetween. That should allow even the situation where th B3 runs just as a server (over LAN in the internal net) and offer guests a wireless access in a subnet.

Or even setup a true DMZ when used as a router with a secure network on eth1 and a DMZ network on wlan0.

Best regards,

You can do it yourself. Just go into /etc/network/interfaces and create separate entries for eth1 and wlan0 to replace interface br0.

The problem with this scheme is that it complicates firewall configuration such that building a comprehensive web interface to control it (like the current one) may not be possible. I doubt that Excito will be jumping to this occasion.

...or to complicate things even further: The ultimate thing here would be having different SSID's with different networks. Connect to network "guest" and get only Internet access or connect to network "internal" and get full access.

I know it's not possible with current hardware, but that would be the coolest :D

I used to have a Dlink DIR-655 featuring a guest wifi zone. ... _Zone.html
The same could be set up on the OpenWRT-based Linksys device I used for a while after the Dlink died.

I have the B3 because of the poor performance of the old Linksys router so, no, it should not be impossible.

And I must stress, again, that I want Excito to provide a function to lock DHCP-leases to MAC addresses!

I've added the following file to set a fixed DHCP address for the JetDirect card in my printer.

Code: Select all

root@b3:~# cat /etc/dnsmasq.d/hosts.conf
# Laserprinter - NPI3F6C38 - HP 2100 printer
Restart dnsmasq for the change to take effect.
