A full functional WiFi repeater (correctly: a WiFi NAT router)

This is an implementation of a WiFi NAT router on the esp8266 and esp8285. It can be used as range extender for an existing WiFi network. The esp acts as STA and as soft-AP and transparently forwards any IP traffic through it. As it uses NAT no routing entries are required neither on the network side nor on the connected stations. Stations are configured via DHCP by default in the net and receive their DNS responder address from the existing WiFi network.

Measurements show, that it can achieve about 5 Mbps in both directions, so even streaming is possible.

For a setup with multiple routers in a mesh to cover a larger area a new mode “Automesh” has been included https://github.com/martin-ger/esp_wifi_repeater#automesh-mode

The router also allows for remote monitoring (or packet sniffing), e.g. with Wireshark, port mapping, and ACLs.”
