This tutorial describes how to add Access Point functionality to your LMCE core. The core will act as a WiFi access point permitting wireless devices to connect to the core the internal network and the internet.
My hardware setup
- Dell Optiplex Gx620
- WiFi card with Atheros chipset (using madwifi drivers)
- Linux MCE 810 alpha2
the idea is to combine or bridge eth1 and ath0 to a new virtual interface called br0.
- -> eth0 connects to my ADSL modem (192.168.5.0)
- -> eth1 connects to my internal LAN switch (192.168.80.0)
- -> ath0 connects the wireless part of my internal network (192.168.80.0)
Enable WPA encryption
- edit the /etc/hostapd
