Cant connect to ESP over Wifi

First rule buying a router/wifi ap: make sure it is supported by openwrt

https://openwrt.org/toh/start

The only routers i have are or have been supplied by my isp. My main wifi is handled by an old unifi ap. If i was in the market for one, openwrt would be a requirement

Auch! First thing i do when / if changing provider is ask if their “router” can be programmed as bridge only. If not, then goodbye, brother…
I have my own router, (a number of them actually, connected in a Mesh) which is “just a bit” more powerful than that cheap sh*t from providers which is very good on paper, but generally a piece of cr**p in real world.

True. I only have Asus routers which can be loaded with Merlin custom FW (asus based, but heavily customized and upgraded). Having stock FW is good enough for “normal” user only. I guess that this makes us “abnormal” users then… :rofl: (ok, let’s say “advanced”).
