@administrators How would the Omega be configured to make this happen.
I don't have the hardware to test these commands but I expect the following will get you going:
Add a bridge
brctl addbr br0
Then add teh interfaces to the bridge
brctl addif br0 eth0 wlan1
Use ifconfig to see the names of your eth and wlan interfaces to see what you need to use in the above addif command.
You will probably need to put these commands into the startup script at /etc/rc.local
@administrators Thank you none, need more of a tutorial on how to setup this configuration. Also will need to know what affect existing wifi settings have on the bridge configuration. Maybe a factory reset then tutorial on how to set this up?
Did you check-out the "connectivity" tutorials here:
Part 1: Wireless connection between your Omega and Router
Power up your omega connected to the minidock.
Open a browser and go to the console @192.168.3.1 and log-in using the default settings or if you have already changed them use your new login
Go to the "Settings" app
On the dashboard on the left go to "Wif-fi settings" - here you need to scan and setup the omega to connect to your home network (main router/home router) - to do so search for the correct SSID broadcast by your router and set the correct security type and corresponding password. After you are done click the "Configure Wi-fi button"
Next, go to the "Wi-Fi AP settings" on the dashboard on the left. Here you have to first check the "Enable AP Mode" - Next, set an SSID of your choice - This will be the wifi network (range extended) that you will connect to. Set a security type and password. I normally keep these the same as that of the main router for simplicity. Next, click "Configure AP". It may or may not do anything at this stage. However the settings are made.
I would suggest a reboot of the omega at this stage.
And thats it!! now just connect your computer/smartphone to the wifi SSID you set with the password you chose and you are on the internet!
OR to do this from the command line, follow the instructions here:
Part 2: Connection between your Omega and a LAN Switch
Use a PC/MAC and follow the instructions given here:
Part 3: Connecting to a switch
I think directly plugging it in to the switch at this point should work.
If you have the hardware, please try and let us know.
NOTE: I would suggest that you uninstall "wpad-mini" and install "wpad" on the omega. I had a problem making a router out of the omega+ethernet exp and I was facing a lot of issue until I did this. More info on this: https://community.onion.io/topic/27/wifi-wpa2-eap-peap-mschapv2/9
Nayan, thank you so much for the detailed tutorial have copied and pasted it into my omega notes and will give it a shot today. Excited to try something new this will help alleviate some head banging against the wall.
You're welcome. Let us know if it works out. Also to answer your other question:
The omega will behave as a routed bridge in this case - meaning that it will assign addresses, maintain and manage the connection specifics of the devices connected to the switch (I am assuming you will be using a switch). So the ip addresses you see will be in the range from 192.168.3.2-200 or so. It will also be a private network of sorts (sorry I am not a networking expert to know the correct terminology) meaning that if you check on the main router you should be able to see only one IP address - that from the omega - your devices will be routed through the omega. I am not completely sure of the implications this will have on the speed of the connection but logically I assume it will be slower than connecting directly to the main router - unless you are not using any other device on the main router.
This is a very rough explanation from my limited understanding of how these things work. I am sure there are other experts around these communities who can give you a much more detailed explanation.
@Nayan got everything working with the exception of the wireless bridge can ping the Ethernet expansion IP address but still working on figuring out why devices on the switch connected to that port are not being seen. More reading and experimentation is at hand.
This post is deleted!
@Guest ... Are you able to access the internet from the devices connected to the switch?
@Nayan ran into some configuration problems, had to start over "factory reset". Will get back to the point I was and let you know.
Not sure what affect attempting to create the wireless bridge( if possible) has on other wifi configurations within the omega still searching.
Intern extraordinaire @Haoran-Li has made a tutorial that outlines all of the steps:
@Lazar-Demin Just finished setting up the posting by @Haoran-Li
"Using the Omega as a WiFi Ethernet Bridge" but could not get connectivity via the ethernet port on the omega.
Wireless signal from Local router-->Omega receiving wireless signal --
-->Ethernet connection on omega has laptop connected and setup for DHCP. No traffic. Here are the files I configured as per write up.

@Lazar-Demin When finished with the "Using-Omega-As_WiFi-Ethernet-Bridge" will it function as shown? Failed on my first configuration attempt. Attempting a second setup but wanted to show what my configurations look like (show above this post) and convey my expectations. Sounds like it is getting closer.
@Nayan Sorry for the delay have been trying to get this working. Answering your question no devices can not see the internet.
@Guest In the post with all of the configuration files, can you please edit the post to format the settings with code syntax? It's incredibly hard to read with the current formatting.
There's a guide here: https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/wiki/Markdown-Cheatsheet#code
I'll ask @Haoran-Li to take a look, meanwhile you should experiment as well, we definitely welcome innovation in the community
@Lazar-Demin Think I figured it out let me know if it needs anymore editing.
@Guest very legible now, thanks!
@Guest... Just curious whether you were able to get it working finally... ?
