I have updated my configuration script for CeroWrt so that I can use it as a secondary router. I'm currently using CeroWrt 3.7.5-2 as my primary router, and want to make changes to the new router so the addresses/SSIDs etc. don't conflict.

The file "cerowrt-config-secondary.sh" script at http://www.bufferbloat.net/attachments/download/173/cerowrt-config-secondary.sh is a shell script that has sections for consistently configuring aspects of your router. This makes it easy to install new firmware and set all your custom configs in a single file.

This script also gives examples of using a UCI command line instead of the GUI to configure the router.

I have tested this script briefly with the new 3.10.17-3, and it seems fine. The script changes:

# - Set the IP subnets to 172.30.43.x (instead of 172.30.42.x)
# - Set the SSIDs to CeroWrt+... (instead of the default CeroWrt-...)
# - Set the 5GHz radio to channel 44 (instead of 36)
# - Set a WPA2-PSK password of 'Beatthebloat' on all SSIDs
# - Set the AQM parameters for 6500/700 kbps down/upload speeds
# - Enable mDNS on the ge00 (wan) interface - only do this for secondary router

I would love to have comments on this. Thanks.
