I got a tp link 740N with openwrt and atheros chip working as a wireless repeater by using this tutorial as a reference. basically, you need to connect your wifi router as a client to your main one, create a new virtual wifi interface and bridge the two via relayd (repeater package) In my case I'm using two identical tplinks with same version of openwrt so ...

I'm not quite sure about it. Upgraded kernel to 3.17.6, no change to kernel configuration and it just worked. I guess the NetworkManager or udev or whatever userspace tools that changed it behavior, which is incompatible with older kernels. If someone has better answer I will have this removed

I believe that some, but not all wifi chipsets will allow 2 subinterfaces, one of them in master mode and one of them in client mode. The difficulty is that there is only one radio. The client subinterface needs to search for the SSID it wants to join and set the radio to the same channel as the access point it associates to. Master subinterfaces, on the ...

Ok, I was doing wrong. To share internet over wi-fi from other connection you need to set wi-fi adapter into AP-mode. So I've used create_ap script and all is good now

I believe this can be fixed by setting CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER=n and recompiling the kernel. Later kernels have this set to n by default. If this is not an option for you, try adding to /etc/udev/rules.d/50-firmware: SUBSYSTEM=="firmware", ACTION=="add", ATTR{loading}="-1" (create the file if it does not exist) and reboot. It helped for my case. ...

(in my case broadcom) just copy+paste brcm directory in lib/firmware in crunchbang. You can get that brcm directory in Kali Linux or other distro in same place lib/firmware

The section you should ignore is the Configure Network Address Translation section. In fact if you want to guarantee that wireless clients can't go onto the Ethernet connection do the following: Run sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf. Scroll to the bottom and add net.ipv4.ip_forward=0 on a new line. Save the file. This will disable ip forwarding on boot up. Run: ...

What distro and what kernel version do you use? What is the output as root of rfkill list all? What is the vendor and device ID of your chipset? lspci -v -nn should help with that. Anything obvious in dmesg | grep 80211 or grep 80211 /var/log/messages ? Hint: The latter might fail if you are already running journald and no syslog service is running, hence ...

You could take a look at the manpage, and the link in there - http://wireless.kernel.org/en/developers/Regulatory/ $ apropos CRDA crda (8) - send to the kernel a wireless regulatory domain for a given ISO / IEC 3166 alpha2 output of man crda: CRDA(8) Linux ...

With just the right help from the comments and a very simple Google search I was able to find a solution and it was even in the original site for Raspberry :) If anyone else ever wonders about the same thing, the solution that worked for me can be found here. It turned out pretty basic, fundamental stuff. TL;DR: disabling the hotplug for the ethernet ...

Turns out to be a false warning. To quote from the (now closed) kernel bug report: Alfred Krohmer: If I unterstand your patch correctly it just removes the warning, but it won't actually fix the driver crash this bug report was submitted for. So why mark it as resolved? Emmanuel Grumbach: There is no real bug. The commit message explains this. ...

This is a bit late, but as far as I understand, you need to turn wifi off before doing it, and on again afterwards.

use aircrack-ng suit: sudo airmon-ng start wlan0 sudo airodump-ng mon0 if you are in the same network: use nmap: sudo nmap -sn gateway-ip/24

My go-to tool for Wi-Fi analytics is the airomon-ng suite: airmon-ng start wlan0 And then airodump-ng mon0 When you're done: airmon-ng stop mon0 The cheapest, most inobtrusive way to get what you want, though, is to log into the AP and run: iwlist ath0 peers As an added benefit this will give you the upstream signal strength, as received by the ...

Upgrading my kernel from 3.13 to 3.16 (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.16-utopic/) and reinstalling the new driver from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new seems to have solved my problems. Don't forget to reboot. Note: Upgrading the kernel in itself did not help.

You can configure sudo so that members of a group can run a command without a password. Use visudo to edit the sudoers file: # visudo Add something similar to: %mygroup ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: iwlist wlanX scan to the bottom of the file (where mygroup is the name of your group preceded with a percent symbol). You could also allow a single user to run ...
