Hi,

DietPi did not support this out of the box at the moment. Maybe you would need to have a look to something like RaspAP https://raspap.com/
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

It looks like you want to have a wifi repeater/mesh network correct?

Believe it or not, you can use some of those simple and cheap ESP01 modules and make a very teeny tiny wifi repeater
It's rather amazing actually

The only caveat is due to it repeating...the overall bandwidth thru the network of repeaters is halved with each hop (however should be absolutely more than enough for network streaming and whatnot)

Just tested it...setup automesh and it's working great for my network
