Multissid - 4.14.80-bpi-r2


this is my first post. I tried configure multi ssid on soft from Frank-w kitchen.

Linux debian 4.14.80-bpi-r2-main #177 SMP Sun Nov 11 10:03:58 CET 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux

but second ssid won`t start below log after start

maybe somebody will help with it.

Internal card can open only one accesspoint,so only one ssid. For a secon one you need an additional wifo-card. I have a 7612 pcie-card to open a second ap (separate hostapd-config) on 5ghz.

THX Frank,

That limitation follows from software or hardware?

Nice to see a datasheet for this chip…i’m not sure if it is sw/hw related but for multi-bssi you need to operate on different channels and only a few wifi-chips can do this…

But nice to know that hw supports btle…so at least this is driver-limitation maybe that will help

seems to be the same document as above…there is only described that BTLE is supported with frequency-ranges, but not how to activate it via code (i need the register-adresses and values + order for activation)

this is internal manual from Mediatek. there is part about multi ssid but is nothing about Bluetooth.

i don’t know if the hardware supports multibssid…this document seems to be for another chip

btw. here is the driver for internal wifi: maybe you can test a bit in debug-mode
