Basically I am trying to accomplish the following setup -
wireless internet --->
wlan0 of Ubuntu computer "bridged to"
wlan1 of same Ubuntu computer ---> device with wifi
The reason for this setup is that the wireless internet is a WPA2 Enterprise network which my device with wifi cannot connect to. (The device with wifi also cannot connect to peer-to-peer networks or ad-hoc networks.) Also, the wireless internet source has no whitelist / blacklist and therefore there is no issue with it seeing the device's MAC address (if necessary), and no issue with it assigning an IP address to the device (if necessary). It is the device that has an issue with WPA2 Enterprise authentication.
[EDIT - As the device cannot successfully authenticate, the wireless internet source is NOT likely to assign an IP address to the device, and also likely to take issue with seeing the device's MAC address.]
wlan0 is an Intel wireless chipset / interface which cannot be set to either access point mode or master mode, and therefore is used to connect to the WPA2 Enterprise internet source.
wlan1 is to be set to access point mode.
Obviously, the "bridge" between
wlan1 is not meant to be wireless, as both are on the same computer.
(1) I believe
brctl cannot bridge a wireless interface (
wlan0) to another wireless interface (
Is this correct?
brctl cannot be used, can I still use
brctl cannot be used, what should I be looking for to accomplish the setup described above?
(4) Would any of the following be a part of the solution to my problem -
dnsmasq to serve DHCP
(c) static IP address (for
wlan1 ???) (for the device connected to
(d) NAT (Network Address Translation)
(f) IP Masquerade
sudo iw set dev wlan0 4addr on
(h) WDS (wireless distribution system)
(i) IP Forwarding ?
