[Olsr-users] Testing DLEP plugin without WiFi

Hi all,

So I am testing your plugins, specifically layer2, layer2info, and
layer2_config. I am secondly confused on what the result of running such
plugins should do - should I see test data in the OONF telnet plugin? May i
have some clarification on which executable I should be running this plugin
on top of (./olsrd2_dlep_static or ./dlep_radio_static)? For reference, my
setup still looks as such (you can disregard the wifi).

Router 1 --(ethernet adapter)-- Radio 1 ---- (wifi & ethernet adapter) ----
Radio 2 ----(ethernet adapter) ---- Router 2

The problem is that I cannot seem to achieve Router 1 *to see *Router 2
through the telnet interface. Through bridging ethernet interfaces, I am
able to see the logical IP addresses I assign through the end nodes'
routing tables, but I do not think this is what I wanted.
802.11s is not supported on all my nodes unfortunately. If anyone has
successfully created a mesh network with Linksys WRT54GL routers, I would
appreciate any help with that as well.
