I am setting up a Raspberry Pi 2 as an access point within my home office. I have connected the ethernet and configured the WLAN. I have not yet setup
hostapd as I have connectivity problems.
If the wlan interface is up it is not possible to connect to the Pi in anyway, however if I issue
ifconfig wlan0 down then I am able to connect using SSH.
This is my
source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.50.252 netmask 255.255.255.0
/etc/network/interfaces.d directory is empty).
I cannot see what the issue is at all.
ifconfig reports that everything is OK, but when
wlan0 is up it is not possible to connect. I am sure I am missing something very simple.
