Wireless to Ethernet bridge

Wed Aug 12, 2015 10:15 pm

Hey chaps, I'm struggling to get this working, I'm trying to connect an rb to a wireless network and nat it out to some wired clients but it isn't working.

Is there an quick setup for this?

I've got the wlan interface connecting to the WiFi fine but I'm struggling to get it out onto the Ethernets.

Thanks

Tim

Tim,
Ensure your RB is connected to the Wireless using "Station" mode with a dhcp client on the wireless interface.
You might have done this already.
Set a bridge to connect ether1 and wlan1.
Ensure that the other ether ports set ether1 as their master.

Give it a whirl.

Cool, that is exactly what I was doing, at least I am headed in the right direction! I'll check my config and try again.

Thanks
