I'm cracking my head how to configure my RUTX11 in order to use 2.4 GHz WiFi as AP and as client at the same time. Maybe am I using a wrong sequence during configuration?
What I did after delivery reception, and results:
1.) inserted and configured SIM1. Works and provides internet to connected devices.
2.) renamed both pre-configured APs to the same (individual) SSID. Both working and providing internet to connected devices.
3.) configured "wwlan" client to connect to my home WiFi (successfully found by search button). Must use 2.4 GHz band for this purpose due to insufficient signal strength of 5 GHz (distance to home router, through several walls, too long ...). After this configuration, I moved this client connection upward in the list in order to use remote WiFi as long as it is in range, and fall back to SIM if "getting out of range"
Final result: client connection is working and providing my home router's internet to RUTX11 and its clients. Fallback to SIM (if connection to remote router drops ...) also works as intended. Both RUTX11 APs are reported "active" in the Web config interface, but only 5 GHz remains "visible" (and accessible) to connecting devices.
However, some of my devices requiring connection to RUTX11 only support 2.4 GHz WiFi; therefore I need both RUTX11 APs to be active even while RUTX11 is connecting as client to another router via 2.4 GHz.
In addition, while travelling we will need to configure additional clients to connect to external WiFi's, and this of course should not stop functionality of any RUTX11 AP, no matter whether they may have been configured before or after any additional client configurations.
Many thanks for your kind advice how to get this complex szenario working.
Best regards and enjoy a pleasant weekend
