I have two wireless interfaces on my raspberry Pi that I'd like to be connected to the same network using DHCP (so each interface has a different IP). What do I need to change in my interfaces file?


auto lo

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
iface default inet dhcp


ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

  • Do you want to end up with two IP addresses, or do you want to duplicate your "network power" by using the two interfaces at a time as a single one with more throughput? – lgeorget Jul 17 '14 at 14:13
  • Two IP addresses, only. – bulkmoustache Jul 17 '14 at 14:13
