Client mode should just work using the UI.
Open, WEP, WPA PSK and EAP networks should just work. Day to day usage should work fine.
Known bugs / To do
- Hidden APs do not fully work yet: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/489
- Flight mode might not disable wifi: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/190 / https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/397
- Server certificates are not verified currently: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/137
- Scan results could be returned sooner: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/342
- easy-wlan wizard might be a bit buggy: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/221
- Improve wpa_supplicant dbus handling code to pick up new interfaces and deal with them somehow (as opposed to hardcoding one interface)
- Support passive scans: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/149
- Support more/new EAP methods: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/145
- Ad-Hoc mode not supported yet: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/154
- Support WPA3/SAE
- Integration with hotspot missing
- Support wifi powersaving: https://github.com/maemo-leste/bugtracker/issues/172
- Set the regdomain country based on ofono modem data (country)
There is no UI for this yet.
To share your mobile data over wireless, you will need to install dnsmasq and hostapd.
You will want to set `wpa=2`, `ssid=` and `wpa_passphrase` in hostapd.conf, like so (of course, there might be other options that are set):
wpa=2 ssid=Internet wpa_passphrase=secureinternetpassword
You can copy the example config files to /etc/hostapd/
For /etc/dnsmasq.conf, make sure `interface=` includes at least `lo,wlan0`, like so:
You might also want to change `dhcp-range=` in the config file to match the subnet of your wireless interface ip, per our example:
Then restart dnsmasq.
Next, configure iptables:
sudo iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -s 192.168.44.1/24 -j MASQUERADE sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
And finally bring up the interface and run hostapd:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 192.168.44.2 sudo hostapd -i wlan0 /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
