If I understand right, you want to use the
company's TPLink router to
be used like gateway to access internet, Doesn't it?
Then the best way I think is to connect this router to
libremesh TPLink router via ethernet RJ-45 from a LAN port to the WAN
port of the libremesh router.
Connecting via Ethernet is not possible because there is a road in between the routers and
we do not have money to buy a cable and install it in a way that it wouldn't get
I you wanted to connect them via Wireless, you have to
scan from the
libremesh router and connect to the company's router wireless station
that will create a new Interface called WWAN that will act like the
main gateway in the libremesh network.
This sounds like exactly what we want to do, but we need more detailed instructions. In
what part of the LibreMesh interface do we find buttons to create a WWAN interface, scan
available WiFi networks, and connect the chosen network to the WWAN interface?
When you do this, you have to be sure that the
libremesh router IP is
not in the same sub-network that the IP from the company router.
Probably this is not a problem because usually the company routers are
in the 192.168.0.x or 192.168.1.x subnets while libremesh routers are
configured in the 13.x.x.x subnet. But can be cause of trouble when
using openwrt because sometimes both routers are in the same subnet by
I agree that this will not be a problem in this case since LibreMesh creates a 10.13.x.x
network and the ISP router is 192.168.0.x.
Please, try this and tell us if it works.
I look forward to trying with more detailed instructions.

We have a TPLink router that belongs to the ISP and we cannot out
LibreMesh on it not edit it's configuration. We have a TPLink 842 with
LibreMesh, and we want it to connect to the WiFi of the ISP's router as
its internet connection. How can we do this? I imagine we configure it
on the Interfaces page and also the Wireless page, something about
client mode and bridging interfaces, but my first attempt didn't work
so I'm asking instead of failing a thousand times alone.
