I followed the instructions here: enter link description here with the aim of getting ap and managed client wifi running together. The wlan0 setup works perfectly. I could not see any attempt to run ap0 in the journalctl.

The command:

systemctl status [email protected]

shows that ap0 is loaded but not active.

I ran the command:

sudo systemctl start [email protected]

The journal reported the following failure:

systemd[1]: sys-subsystem-net-devices-ap0.device: Job sys-subsystem-net-devices-ap0.device/start timed out.

Where should I look to solve this??

  • I have deleted the answer because it wasn't accepted. If you want to refer it, I have made a new one at Access point as WiFi repeater, optional with bridge.

  • All attempts to setup an AP with Stretch didn't work. I tried again by upgrading Stretch to Buster. Still didn't work. I then tried to setup an AP with a fresh Buster installation and it worked perfectly first time. I have decided not to try to setup in AP and client at the same time.
