I’ve been using the BPI R2 as a router for a while now and it works great apart from the low WiFi performance. While in ap mode bridged with eth0, it is very unstable with hostapd. If I restart hostapd for example I have to restart the whole WiFi with: echo 0 > /dev/wmtWifi and then echo A again.
On WiFi I get max about 34 Mbps which is very low compared to my TL-WR1043ND wifi router which has about 100 Mbps.
Maybe it’s my configuration for hostapd so here it is. Note: The comented out line is what I’ve tried and it didn’t work at all.
