AP mode of Linux


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to run my Eragon 410c in AP mode with no success. About Eragon 410c, it runs on the same SoC as Dragonboard 410C.
I’m trying with hostapd and dnsmasq. Hostapd works fine at some level but it is not able to create AP, it hangs while executing, no AP is generated.
I’m using http://www.96boards.org/forums/topic/ap-mode-on-linux/ as refernce.
NOTE: I have to stop network-manager and wpa_supplicant services to work with hostapd so far otherwise hostapd stops with following error:

wcn36xx: ERROR Timeout! No SMD response in 500ms
wcn36xx: ERROR Failed to push NV to chip

So I took reference from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new/issues/16 link.

Following is my current output of hostapd execution after stopping network-manager and wpa_supplicant service:

Hello,

You can enable WiFi AP using hostapd. But you need to set up DHCP server to allow AP to assign IP address.

Install DHCP server using below command and configure dhcpd.config.
sudo apt-get -y install iw hostapd isc-dhcp-server

after installation and configuration, run below script.

SCRIPT THAT STARTS HOTSPOT MODE

Wait until wlan interface shows up

MYWLAN=""
while [ “$MYWLAN” == “” ]
do
echo -n "Waiting for wlan.txt"
date
sleep 2
MYWLAN=ifconfig | grep ^wlan | cut -d ’ ’ -f 1
done

cd /etc/default
sed -i -r “s/INTERFACES=.*$/INTERFACES=”$MYWLAN"/" isc-dhcp-server

cd /etc/hostapd
cat > hostapd.conf << EOF
interface=$MYWLAN
driver=nl80211
ssid=My410C
hw_mode=g
channel=1
macaddr_acl=0
auth_algs=1
ignore_broadcast_ssid=0

wpa=2

wpa_passphrase=MySecretPassword

EOF

cd /etc/default
cat > hostapd << EOF
DAEMON_CONF="/etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf"
EOF

sudo service NetworkManager stop
sudo ifconfig $MYWLAN 192.168.1.69
sudo service isc-dhcp-server start
sudo hostapd -dd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf &

I followed above procedure and able to see SSID in my mobile. Below is console log from my eragon board.

#3

Thanks for your reply.
AP is up and running fine now with your script.


#4

When I try to connect my iPhone to the hotspot (on my Dragonboard), following this script, the iphone spinner keeps rotating and writing “No internet connection”.


#5

The given steps allow to create a local WiFi network, but do not offer Internet access. If you have a network interface with internet access (e.g. eth0), you typically need to enable IP forwarding / NAT.

$ sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
$ iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
$ iptables -F FORWARD
$ iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

#6

Here are steps to configure a wireless connection as AP mode using “nmcli” command:

  1. To create a WIFI Access Point, first create the connection:

nmcli con add type wifi ifname wlan0 con-name dragonboard_ap autoconnect yes ssid dragonboard_ap

  1. Set up the Wi-Fi as AP mode:

nmcli con modify dragonboard_ap 802-11-wireless.mode ap 802-11-wireless.band bg ipv4.method shared

  1. Set up the password for your access point (e.g. for a WPA2 AP):

nmcli con modify dragonboard_ap wifi-sec.key-mgmt wpa-psk
nmcli con modify dragonboard_ap wifi-sec.psk “1234567890”

  1. Enable the connection:

nmcli con up dragonboard_ap
