I am working on doing some bridging from a hostap network to an Access point
through a USB wifi NIC using the USB Atmel card (Netgear MA101).
eth1 (atmel driver)
Wireless Access Point bridging to wired network.
I have done the following on the laptop:
ifconfig wlan0 0.0.0.0
ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth1
brctl addif br0 wlan0
ifconfig br0 10.6.6.6 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 10.6.6.255
I can ping the bridge IP 10.6.6.6 from both the wireless client (10.6.6.7) and
the wired PC (10.6.6.1). I can also ping the wireless client and the wired PC
from the bridge. But 10.6.6.1 can't ping 10.6.6.7 ... nor vice versa.
Any tips? Is there a reason this should not work?
I don't need to turn on IP_FORWARD right ... well I did just in case and it
didn't help. Also, iptables doesn't operate on the br0 right, well, perhaps if
I told it to it would but I haven't. I have default accept policies for everything.
