Hi, I am new to OpenWrt so this may be a rather basic question, but I was not able to find an answer online.
I have a
Raspberry PI 3B+ and I'm using the
openwrt-22.03.0-bcm27xx-bcm2710-rpi-3-ext4-factory.img. What I am trying to do is, get an access point and a station to come up together on the single radio that is available.
wpa_supplicant I was able to get this functionality to work on the
Raspberry PI 3B+ using the latest
Raspberry PI OS installation.
However when I try the setup with OpenWrt, both wireless interfaces are
UP but in a
DOWN state. If I disable one wireless interface through UCI the other will work, but they do not seem to want to work together.
sta: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state DOWN qlen 1000 link/ether b8:27:eb:ac:39:af brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff ap: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel master br-lan state DOWN qlen 1000 link/ether ba:27:eb:ac:39:ae brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
I have tried the setup using the
wpad package, and also with the full
wpa_supplicant pacakges installed.
If I run the following code and wait
while(true); do ip link show dev sta | grep 'state UP'; done
I will see that the station does briefly try to come up, but then goes down, this will happen every 10 seconds or so.
My question is, is this possible with OpenWrt and the RPI 3B+ or is there something in OpenWrt that is preventing the 2 wireless interfaces from coming up together?
