In the series of WiFi access points, we will see the bridged WiFi access point (or Dumb AP), which allows to add WiFi connectivity to an existing network, with no other new services than negotiation and authentication. It uses existing infrastructure services.
Small series of articles on the implementation of WiFi access points under Linux. We will start with the generalities, mainly the choice, critical, of the adapter. We will then see the bridged and routed networks, and declensions. I will use a Raspberry Pi 2 as a base, it lends itself very well to this kind of manipulation.
