What does this setting do?
Not really, although google turns this up. It would be useful to me to be able to issue a second gateway to clients. Or maybe this isn't what it does.
Enabling slows my WDS clients throughput down. Adds a noticeable lag. If we don't know what it does and don't have any information on how and when to use it, why is it there?
I've looked as well and I have found nothing that gives instructions on when, what kind of network setups, etc., to use it for.
Teddy Bear added it, the code has been tidied up several times so one assumes it is stable by now. But we can't ask him how to use it at the moment, unfortunately. Maybe someone else will pop up and tell us? I have a second gateway on most of my buildings, it would be nice to use this to notify clients of that, if that's what it's for, instead of assigning individually by Static DHCP. But without any instructions as to how to use it, I can't make it do anything noticeable, but will experiment a bit later. Maybe something will happen in logs ... whatever.
The source code does refer to static classless routes, so this is on the right track. I expect a good session with google would reveal how to use it, if only life wasn't so short
But where do you configure the second gateway information and which router gets this selected? Just the gateway router that is attached to the internet?
Need more input.
I described it (what I use presently) here:
Well when having multiple VLANs in different ports, I had to disable DHCP Routes to make it work properly for Tomato Shibby's MultiWAN, too many options not much documentation...
So does anyone know the answer to the OP?
