 +====== Setup a Turris Omnia as a repeater with unique SSID ======

 I've had need of a personal AP connected to some remote WiFi signal on several occasions so ended up building my Turris to support this. This is a common scenario for people traveling in an RV or hosting events where they want to provide Internet access through various wireless (or wired) connections & don't want to have to reconfigure all the clients. I've had need of a personal AP connected to some remote WiFi signal on several occasions so ended up building my Turris to support this.

 I disconnected the 2.4ghz only radio from the antennas & added 2 more u.fl to RP-SMA pigtails. That way I can plug a directional antenna into that radio for better range to the remote WiFi. It also lets the 2.4/5ghz radio get exclusive use of the 3 standard antennas. This is not required, but helps to decrease interference & increase range & throughput. I disconnected the 2.4ghz only radio from the antennas & added 2 more u.fl to RP-SMA pigtails.
