I have a mini PC with a WiFi and an Ethernet port.
I am trying to set it up as an AP (simplest case).
I have 2 radios (0 /1) and I have configured radio0 to the 2.4GHz band (default/auto).
Following the docs, I believe I have the setup correct ... but it doesn't work!
config device option name 'br-lan' option type 'bridge' list ports 'eth0' config interface 'lan' option device 'br-lan' option proto 'dhcp' config device option name 'eth0' config device option name 'wlan0' option ipv6 '0'
config wifi-device 'radio0' option type 'mac80211' option path 'virtual/mac80211_hwsim/hwsim0' option country 'GB' option cell_density '0' option band '2g' option legacy_rates '1' option channel 'auto' config wifi-iface 'default_radio0' option device 'radio0' option network 'lan' option mode 'ap' option key '******' option ssid 'LabNet2' option encryption 'none' config wifi-device 'radio1' option type 'mac80211' option path 'virtual/mac80211_hwsim/hwsim1' option band '5g' option country 'GB' option cell_density '0' option channel 'auto' option disabled '1' config wifi-iface 'default_radio1' option device 'radio1' option network 'lan' option mode 'ap' option ssid 'LabNet5' option encryption 'psk2' option key '******' option disabled '1'
The problem is that I cannot see the configured LabNet2 SSID from my phone/analyser - and running scan from the WebUI doesn't find my (seperate) router, which is on both bands.
I have tried various combinations of bands/channels/encryption to no avail.
I'm new to OpenWRT, but I think I understand what it's doing ... but obviously not well enough.
Please suggest anything I can do to determine the problem (or, preferably, fix it).
