#6 Updated by Hammel almost 5 years ago

hostapd is now enabled in rootfs and bui-network-config generates configuration files for it.

However, the configuration does not bring up hostapd completely. See the attached log file.

The reason hostapd doesn't come up is because the password in the psk file was too short. See RM #205.

If the password is fixed, hostapd comes up and I can connect to it from my android phone.

After #205 is fixed, I'll need some options in bui-network-config (see RM #206) to choose between running as an Access Point or as a wireless client. Only one or the other should run. This means that bui-network-config needs to save a marker under /etc/networks that tells S40network whether to start the wireless client or hostapd.

Once #206 is implemented I need to update S40network to use the marker file.

#8 Updated by Hammel almost 5 years ago

Ready to update S40network based on use of /etc/network/nettype marker file.

  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed

Updated network init script to choose wireless/wired client or wireless access point configuration.
