I have a problem for a long time with my pi3 . In fact I have not managed so far blush to run my connection in bridge. I followed all the instructions of the various tutorials online but eventually changed the form but not the result. I have configured interfaces in this way:

auto lo 

iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface default inet dhcp

auto br0
iface br0 inet static
      bridge_ports wlan0 eth0
      bridge_stp off
      bridge_maxwait 5

wpa-iface wlan0
wpa-bridge br0
wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

But in the end I do not have the WLAN in bind to bridge:

root@raspberrypi:~# sudo brctl show
bridge name bridge id       STP enabled interfaces
br0     8000.b827ebxxxxxx   no      eth0

Please, help me...

  • If you "followed all the instructions of the various tutorials online" your Pi (running an undefined OS) will be a mess! What are you ACTUALLY trying to do? What you have would NEVER have worked. – Milliways Mar 4 '19 at 2:13
  • You can't bridge wireless networks. You have to use iptables with masquerading - take a look at: raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/… – Dougie Mar 4 '19 at 6:25
  • What operating system do you use? Because you are using /etc/network/interfaces it cannot be Raspbian. What access point to you want to use? Do you want a stand alone AP or should there be an uplink to an internet router? What interfaces do you want to bridge? wlan0 and eth0? – Ingo Mar 4 '19 at 12:02
  • There is no Raspberry Pi Model 3 available. What exactly is your model? RPi A3, RPi A3+, RPi B3, RPi B3+, CM 3, CM 3+? – Ingo Mar 4 '19 at 12:09
  • Okay, first of all, thank you for your interest. Now let's do some clarity. – andrewz Mar 4 '19 at 22:39
