Connecting via Ethernet is not possible because there is a road in between the routers and we do not have money to buy a cable and install it in a way that it wouldn't get damaged.

This sounds like exactly what we want to do, but we need more detailed instructions. In what part of the LibreMesh interface do we find buttons to create a WWAN interface, scan available WiFi networks, and connect the chosen network to the WWAN interface?

I agree that this will not be a problem in this case since LibreMesh creates a 10.13.x.x network and the ISP router is 192.168.0.x.

I look forward to trying with more detailed instructions.
