Manao ahoana, Hello, Bonjour,

On my WRT54GL unit running CoovaAP, when:
    # cat /proc/switch/eth0/vlan/1/ports 
    4	5t	
    # cat /proc/switch/eth0/vlan/0/ports 
    0	1	2	3	5t*	

I try to read + interpret it:
-- "4" is the "WAN" port ("WAN" in the case)
-- "0" - "3" are the "LAN" ports ("1"-"4" in the case)
-> What is the meaning of "5t" and "5t*"?


    root at ADEMAWIFI:~# ifconfig | grep "Link "
    br0       Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:25:9C:BF:4C:F4  
    eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:25:9C:BF:4C:F2  
    eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:25:9C:BF:4C:F4  
    lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
    tap0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:FF:F1:24:CF:0C  
    vlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:25:9C:BF:4C:F2  
    vlan1     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:25:9C:BF:4C:F2  

    root at ADEMAWIFI:~# brctl show
    bridge name	bridge id         STP enabled   interfaces
    br0         8000.00259cbf4cf4 no		eth1

I guess that the Wireless is "eth1": How to be sure?

"tap0" is a virtual interface created by Chilli.

-- when reading http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/uci and trying to
issue "uci -P/var/state show network.wan", I get "-ash: uci: not
found". I think that is because "uci" has been introduced after the
release of my version.

Misaotra, Thanks, Merci.
