Hi Team,


I am using ath9k and hostapd to create AP. I want to put WiFi interface in
bridge mode.


Is it the correct sequence to put the WiFi interface in bridge mode?


1) brctl addbr br0
2) brctl addif br0 eth0 
3) brctl setfd br0 0 
4) hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
5) brctl addif br0 wlan0
6) ifconfig eth0 up
7) ifconfig br0 up
Please share your thoughts on this. Your inputs will be very useful for me.



Can I use the bridge parameter in hostapd.conf file for each BSS for
respective bridge?
