LibreMesh WiFi config

For more information about the LibreMesh config file options see config.

The general config WiFi section is used for configuring WiFi devices if there are not specific sections. The general config looks like the following example.

config lime 'wifi'
	option channel_2ghz '11'
	option channel_5ghz '48'
	option htmode_5ghz 'HT40'
	option distance '1000'
	list modes 'ap'
	list modes 'apname'
	list modes 'ieee80211s'
	option ap_ssid 'LibreMesh.org'
	option apname_ssid 'LibreMesh.org/%H'
	option adhoc_ssid 'LiMe'
	option adhoc_bssid 'ca:fe:00:c0:ff:ee'
	option adhoc_mcast_rate_2ghz '24000'
	option adhoc_mcast_rate_5ghz '6000'
	option ieee80211s_mesh_fwding '0'
	option ieee80211s_mesh_id 'LiMe'

To make a specific configuration you must create a new wifi section named radioN, where N is the radio index (to see WiFi devices list execute: iw list).

The following example shows how to configure specific WiFi devices. In the example radio0 is used only for meshing and radio1 is used only for Access Point.

config wifi 'radio0'
	list modes 'ieee80211s'
	option ieee80211s_mesh_id 'LiMe'
	option ieee80211s_mesh_fwding '0'
	option channel_2ghz '11'
	option channel_5ghz '48'
	option distance '1000'

config wifi 'radio1'
	list modes 'ap'
	list modes 'apname'
	option apname_ssid 'LibreMesh.org/%H'
	option apname_key 'mypassword'
	option apname_encryption 'psk2'
	option ap_ssid 'LibreMesh.org'
	option ap_key 'mypassword'
	option ap_encryption 'psk2'
	option channel_2ghz '11'
	option channel_5ghz '48'
	option distance '1000'

These two new sections must be appened in file /etc/config/lime in addition to the already existing ones.

To apply the changes run lime-config and lime-apply.
