Hello all, I am running into trouble when following tutorials on compiling and setting up wpa_supplicant for use. I am trying to get its p2p (Wifi Direct) functionality working, but I am currently at the starting wpa_supplicant step.
I have to network interfaces, eth1 and wlan0. eth1 is connected to the internet, wlan0 I need to serve as a hotspot sharing eth1's internet connection to anyone connected to wlan0. I am running ubuntu server 12.04 lts.... any help will be greatly appreciated. thank you?
You could try the following, which solved a possibly similar problem with a JME card:ip link set dev wlan0 down
ip link set dev wlan0 promisc on
macchanger -a wlan0
ip link set dev wlan0 upThen reconnect with wpa_supplicant or whatever you use.
