I'm still trying to get my boat network sorted out.
access and file serving, I use a Huawei B593 LTE router which works great. I have a 2TB external hard drive which is attached to the router via USB3. I will connect my Ubiquiti Bullet via Ethernet in order to distribute wifi
For the nav network, I have the Simrad WiFi
1 module which distributes all the network's NMEA0183 data and allows connection of the GoFree app. It works perfectly to get 0183 data into laptops and tablets for INavX
, EDO Instruments, OpenCPN
I would like to connect the WiFi1 to the Huawei to get the 0183 datastream into the main network, but since my Huawei doesn't have IGMP Snooping, I can't block the radar
datastream from overloading the network, so can't do this.
But what if I connect the WiFi1 to my laptop
by Ethernet? I don't believe there will be any overloading there since it's just a peer to peer Ethernet connection. So that will get me the 0183 data without a second wifi connection.
And maybe I can bridge the 0183 datastream back onto the boat network somehow? Is there any reasonably straightforward way to do that?
