Bug #246

Disabling a interface disables all interfaces on the same radio

Description

From reading other bug reports I see this is in a “Don’t do that” status right now. But this should eventually be fixed

I wanted to disable the open CEROwrt-guest and CEROwrt5-guest interfaces while leaving the CEROwrt and CEROwrt5 active. However if you disable the *-guest interface via the gui then you disable all interfaces for that radio.

The most straightforward thing to do at present is to put an unrememberable password on those interfaces and put them in wpa mode.

It really mucks with several levels to delete interfaces, notably with the firewall rules.

That said, I HAVE in the past been able to remove individual interfaces without nuking the entire config.

I will verify against the rc6 candidate.

This bug is not for deleting the interfaces. I’m setting the disable option to 1.

I put delete interfaces into a different bug.

Thank you for clarifying that. I’ll take a look in my next smoke test of rc6

will fix in rc7

This will hopefully be fixed in the first rc7 smoketest.

Tried to test with rc7 smoke1 but was unable to because when I go to the network tab in the web UI it hangs and I eventually have to let the browser (tried both chrome and firefox) kill the script. I’ll retry in the next smoketest.

@richard: I’ll let you know when I have a stable smoketest to test. rc7-smoketest2 has problems, too, but not the one you’ve hit.

I’ll argue that most of the last several months builds would do the right thing here.
