Hi,

New AC68U YazFi user here and what a wonderful add-on. Just a question, is it possible to merge GuestNetwork's 2.4 and 5Ghz as single subnet? from the UI and Config, it seems each wifi 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz has to be separated subnet. My goal is each Guest network have both 2.4 and 5Ghz wifi and the 2 frequencies combine as single subnet so the clients on Guest1 can talk to each other even they are on different wifi frequency. Thanks.

you can make devices from one subnet communcate to the other subnet with static routes. If your only aim is to allow communication between the two subnets.

Not sure if adding following iptables rule in firewall-start script can work? I am not around the router currently, but will test this out when I can get my hand on the router again. Thanks.

Code:
iptables -I OrgVLANs -i wl0.1 -o wl1.1 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -m comment --comment "Join wl0.1 to wl1.1" -j ACCEPT
iptables -I OrgVLANs -i wl1.1 -o wl0.1 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -m comment --comment "Join wl1.1 to wl0.1" -j ACCEPT

did this work for you?
not sure if u see my other thread about my failed upgrade to 386.1. I didn't proceed the iptables test as I was thinking to go AiMesh2.0 and YazFi not ready for AiMesh2.0 last I heard. so I used my old scripts.

see below thread last post for my working scripts. I am still using basically the same script. but this only works for AiMesh1.0. 2.0 may also work but the bridge structure and Wireless interface naming all changed and 2.4 and 5Ghz itself already created in br1 and br2 separately alone (instead of all in br0 initially for AiMesh1.0.) so the scripts may work but needs to change for AiMesh 2.0. Please note, because I roll back to 384.19 I never test this script in AiMesh2.0
