I'm experimenting with bridging interfaces, and using the my system as a router. I would like to learn how I can connect to one wireless network, and broadcast a new network on a Virtual Access Point. I already know all of the iptables configurations required, and how to stage a dhcp server. However no amount of google-ing has yielded any positive results on how to properly create a vap that can function independently of the main. I have already tried
If anyone can help, I would appreciate it very much.
iw phy phy0 interface add ath0 type __ap
ip link set ath0 address 78:dd:08:ea:6c:07
Oh, an if you would like the scenario where this is useful, the free networks in the area require an authentication proxy, just one of those click accept ones, however I would like to connect my 3DS to one of them. Without a web browser, however, this task seems impossible. Thus the re-broadcast on a vap! ^_^
