I would like to set up a bridged access point on my raspberry PI so I can connect ESP32 devices and do update them. On my raspberry PI, I have a apache server and the ESP32 devices are able to connect to Raspberry pi server and perform OTA ( over the air ) update.
I used to be able to do that all on wifi, but I am moving the system to a different location where Wifi is not available. I only connect the ethernet cable to my Raspberry PI.
So my raspberry PI must create access point ( i dont know bridge or routed?) so the devices can connect to the raspberry pi wirellesly and update.
I have followed the following guide step by step:
After restarting the raspberry pi, on the top left, I can see that : br0:Configured 192.168.10.179/24
But my ESP32 devices are not able to connect to this network for some reason. I am able to establish a connection between the phone and the access point, however I am not able to reach the internet.
Can someone give me advice on how to debug this problem and whether I should be using routed or bridged AP?
