Client mode should just work using the UI.


  • Open, WEP, WPA PSK and EAP networks should just work

Known bugs / To do

To do:

Mobile Hotspot

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):


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 -j MASQUERADE
sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

And finally bring up the interface and run hostapd:

sudo ifconfig wlan0
sudo hostapd -i wlan0 /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
