I'm trying to create a WiFI Extender with my RPi3. I'm using a TP Link TL-WN722N external adapter. The setup is as follows:
Some WiFI -> TP-Link Adapter (wlan1) -> RPi -> Onboard RPi WiFi (wlan0) -> Extended Wifi
I used this tutorial. And all other relevant files are configured the same way as in the tutorial.
