How to configure Wi-Fi client, DHCP client from command line?


Recommended Posts

I have a Mark V that's unconfigured. I can log into it with SSH from my Mac. I want to put the Mark V on my home Wi-Fi network on wlan0 and have it create a secondary network using wlan1. wlan0 should therefore be running AP client. I can also run a DHCP client or just configure it with a static on my home WLAN. Eventually I'd like to have a DHCP client, though, so I can take it on the road easily.

For privacy reasons I want to have the wlan1 network be WPA-secured.

Once I have this running, I'll set up a packet sniffer with tcpdump and have the results stored on an external USB device. I know how to do that, as I'm pretty good with Unix command line, but I am not very familiar with OpenWRT.

It seems that I don't need to break the bridge between eth0 and wlan0.

I'm looking for what to type on the command line to enable AP client on wlan0 and to enable AP access point on wlan1. I'd also like to know the name of the commands for doing the scanning.

This would be a lot easier if there were man pages installed. Is there any way to do that? I've got a lot of flash available...
