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 Wi-Fi, but I am moving the system to a different location where Wi-Fi is not available. I only connect the ethernet cable to my Raspberry Pi.
So my Raspberry Pi must create access point (I don't know bridge or routed?) so the devices can connect to the Raspberry Pi wirelessly 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?
