STA+AP mode

Recommended Posts

hello @sushil

to enable softap mode: 

Developer Guide · TinkerBoard/TinkerBoard Wiki (github.com)

1. for tinker board / tinker board r2.0, download https://github.com/TinkerBoard/TinkerBoard/files/8107749/SoftAP_debian10_20220127.zip

and unzip the file 

 2. update packages and install dnsmasq and hostapd, then execute the shellscript to enable softap

 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt install dnsmasq hostapd

move to the SoftAP_debian10_20220127 directory, and execute the script (with root access)

chmod 755 Enable_SoftAP.sh Disable_SoftAP.sh

error rfkill: cannot open /dev/rfkill: No such file or directory can be ignored

1. to get wifi back to normal mode, please execute ./Disable_SoftAP.sh (otherwise it stays in softap mode after ./Enable_SoftAP.sh is executed)

2. when doing ./Enable_SoftAP.sh or ./Disable_SoftAP.sh

if the error SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill occurrs, please execute 

 echo 1 > /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state 

it is not recommended to use concurrent mode
