I have a project in which I need to configure a Raspberry Pi Zero W to run both wireless AP and Client mode at the same time.
I've seen the tutorials and methods others have used on Raspbian Stretch, but they don't seem to work on Raspbian Buster.
I'm following this tutorial at the moment on Buster.
When I follow the steps in that tutorial I get an error saying that
Device "ap0" doesn't exist
sudo ifdown --force ap0 Cannot find device "ap0" Device "ap0" does not exist. Cannot find device "ap0"
I'm thinking that it's because the tutorial is trying to create a virtual AP device using
udev by modifying
However, Raspbian Buster doesn't seem to have that file, so I created it.
ap0 isn't created / can't be found. The wireless client mode connection works however. The AP mode isn't.
- Is there a better technique to use to enable AP + client mode on RPi Zero W using Buster?
- Is there a modification to the tutorial that will make this work on Buster?
- There must be some networking setup/configuration difference between Buster and Stretch that cause this tutorial to not work, correct?
