What I want to achieve is to extend the range of my Wifi to another room. I've got a router, a Raspberry pi connected to this router through a UTP cable and i've got a Wifi USB stick in the RPi.
What I would like to achieve is to be able to connect to the Wifi and have internet access in either room and also be able to connect to the RPi as well (I.E. ssh or webserver).
I've been following some setups and I've almost achieved what I want to do. I can connect to the wireless and have internet access, however I'm unable to access my RPi. The RPi itself also does not have a internet connection. How can I fix this issue?
What I'm executing to get a bridged internet connection is:
brctl addbr br0 brctl addif br0 eth0 wlan0 ip link set up dev br0 brctl addif br0 wlan0 hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
The file hostapd.conf contains:
interface=wlan0 driver=rtl871xdrv bridge=br0 ssid=Test channel=1 wpa=1 wpa_passphrase=Secret wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK wpa_pairwise=TKIP rsn_pairwise=CCMP auth_algs=1 macaddr_acl=0
Network Manager is running with the following settings:
[main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile [ifupdown] managed=true [keyfile] unmanaged-devices=mac:c4:6e:1f:20:9d:91
