I’m using the
TP-LINK TL-WN725N(EU) V3.0 with chipset
RTL8188EUS. I’ve also checked the wifi-connect of balena playground, and in the README it says AP mode isn’t supported and/or isn’t supported by NetworkManager. But, after some googling, it is supported with hostapd or with a forked version of hostapd. So it’s possible to create an access point for this chipset.
So, my question is: is there a way to manage the Wi-Fi USB dongle with hostapd (or a forked version) inside a container instead of NetworkManager, so I can create an access point?
Thanks in advance!
I’ve found this post: Can't use hostapd with resinOS 2.0. The only thing is, they disable the wireless option of NetworkManager. But I only want to disable 1 device, not all wireless devices. So I’m going to check if there’s a way to do that with NetworkManager.
