I've been stuck with this for a week and don't know how to solve it.
Here is the situation :
I'm trying to setup a Wireless Hotspot from RouterOS that is virtualised on Fedora through virt-manager. The goal is to be able to simulate a Wireless hotspot before setting it up with a real Mikrotik router.
I'm connected to internet through ether1 which is the connection VM-HOST, and want to setup the Hotspot through a wireless usb device Realtek Semiconducter RTL8192EU with id 0bda:818b.
I've added the network in virt-manager with parameters as follow. I did not add the USB device in virt manager in addition.
Source mode : VEPA (tried bridge as well)
Device model : rtl8139. (rtl8192 is not suggested and creates an error if I type RTL8192)
But this is the result of /interface print
My Wireless interface is detected as an ethernet one. And that cause me trouble for the hotspot setup because I can't set an SSID and thus connect to the hotspot from the outside.
Code: Select all
# NAME TYPE ACTUAL-MTU L2MTU MAX-L2MTU MAC-ADDRESS 0 R ether1 ether 1500 52:54:00:4E:8D:C1 1 R ether2 ether 1500 52:54:00:43:AA:7D
How can i set the interface to Wireless manually ? Do i need to add a device model in virtual manager ? How can I do it ?
Or can I manage to have a Wireless hotspot otherwise ?
Thank you, hope to hear from you.
