i.mx8m mini evk as a wireless client and WAP

I would like to be able to have i.mx8m mini evk access wifi router and act as hotspot using hostapd simultaneously.

I am using ubuntu-18.04.2.

Here are the steps I took:

  1. Followed https://community.nxp.com/message/1125263 to enable wifi
  2. Followed these steps to setup WAP
    1. Installed hostapd
    2. Update /etc/hostapd.conf with the following:

auth_algs=1

channel=6

hw_mode=g

ieee80211n=1

ignore_broadcast_ssid=0

interface=wlan0

wpa=2

wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK

wpa_pairwise=TKIP

rsn_pairwise=CCMP

driver=nl80211

ssid=<name>

wpa_passphrase=<passphrase>

I then tested WAP by doing "sudo /usr/sbin/hostapd /etc/hostapd.conf &”

Each of these work individually but not together (obviously). I believe I need to use dnsmasq and iptables to masquerade virtual interface, but this is quickly getting over my head. Can someone assist?

Hi Jeff

one try with latest murata linux wifi documentation (sect.7.1.8 Soft AP or Wi-Fi Hot Spot Testing)

from wireless.murata.com/products/rf-modules-1/wi-fi-bluetooth-for-nxp-i-mx.html

Murata Quick Start Guide (Linux) 6.0

Thank you for the link.

Referencing the command from the documentation you sent: udhcpd -S -I 192.168.1.1 /etc/udhcpd.conf

there is no /etc/udhcpd.conf on my system.

Also, there does not seem to be a -I option for udhcpd.

Any advice?
