I have been following this amazingly detailed guide but keep hitting a roadblock.
I am trying to create without the bridge.
I have run apt update and apt full-upgrade. AP gets created and I can connect but there is an issue with the client in that it just doesn't connect. I have run networkctl which gives the following
IDX LINK TYPE OPERATIONAL SETUP 1 lo loopback carrier unmanaged 2 usb0 gadget off unmanaged 3 wlan0 wlan no-carrier configuring 4 ap0 wlan routable configured
I've checked SSID and PSK and they are correct.
I have been through the troubleshooting section but it seems to mainly apply to issues with the AP part, not the client part. I have also tried to add the bridge capabilities and, strangely, the AP is still visible, I can connect to it and get an IP address but then can't connect via ssh or VNC. I suspect this is because the bridge is attempting to forward the connections?
Any idea how I can fix the client mode?
Also, when it's working, will it be possible to scan available networks using a python package such as wifi? Or is there a straightforward way of dynamically searching and connecting to networks?
