Activate Bananapi M3 WLAN and use WLAN access point?


(john) #1

Hi, Does anyone of you use the WLAN on the BananaPi M3? how did you activate and configure this? Stand there at the beginning without any experience. Probably you have to build a bridge between Wi-Fi and LAN. How is this configured without me locking myself out?

Please help. Thanks!

I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.

HI,

I’ve spent two day for this. For the AP mode the trick is in module parametr:

]# rmmod bcmdhd ]# modprobe bcmdhd op_mode=2

Then I used create_ap:

]# create_ap --no-virt wlan0 eth0 <AP_Name> <AP_Password>

Works for me on archlinux. You can add it here:

]# cat /etc/modules-load.d/wifi.conf
bcmdhd op_mode=2

Have a nice day.
