Yesterday I decided to upgrade my APU’s wifi card from VLE600 to VLE900. It took me about a year to do it but after having fun drilling and all inclusive I decided to also give ipfire a try. Inserted a new mSATA 128G and installed ipfire.
I went only for red + green config so after booting I setup the green network as bridge and added wlan0 , wlan1 and the 2 left wired interface as members. Added hostapd as a component.
After reboot, the wlan config is completely clueless about any wifi board. This should be a known bug cause after searching on the web I found that I need to change /var/ipfire/wlanap/setting to point to wlan0.
I did that and was able to squeeze a “g” connection. To get an ac I need to htcap values… but this can wait.
How can I use both cards in the same time cause I want to have a 2.4 connection for a few devices that linger in house. The interfaces needs to be bridged to have everything working. ( DNLA advertise, printer advertise )
Any idea how this can be achieved?
