Hello IPFire community,
Is it possible to use a PC with only a single ethernet port and a wireless card as an IPFire powered wifi access point?
The idea is to replace an old home wifi-router by:
- Connecting the IPFire-PC through ethernet (red interface) to the ISPs cable modem.
- Configure the IPFire-PCs wifi (green or blue interface) as an access point.
The first question is: Would this work?
- Is it mandatory to use the blue interface for the wifi access point or would the green interface work as well?
- How can the wifi access point be configured at the shell? (i.e. without web UI, which is inaccessible)
Your help is greatly appreciated,
