I had a perfectly working IPFire-system where I installed everythign fro mscratch now to get rid of the “legacy”-warning, means I now installed the x64-package. The system is running, hostapd was installed and the backups for system and hostapd could be restored successfully.
But: WiFi is gone.
When I do a
I get an error message
Could not find interface with address blue0 for wireless access point
When I check in setup → Networking → Drivers and card assignments the wireless adapter is assigned to BLUE
iwconfig also tells me the hardware is there:
blue0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
In /etc/hostapd.conf a wrong driver was listed, I replaced it by ath9k (which is correct for the Qualcomm Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter)
Neverhteless it isn ot working. So any idea what I could check?
