Hi, I’ve been following the steps here to set up my Pi with a WiFi hotspot on wlan0, and then bridging through to the internet on eth0.
I created the new file called resin-hotspot in /boot/system-connections. When I ssh onto the device and run nmcli, nmcli c and nmcli d I get the output below.
root@300f156:~# nmcli c NAME UUID TYPE DEVICE Wired connection 1 f05c7ae5-67ba-3599-959f-b85f0ec9d49b 802-3-ethernet eth0 resin-hotspot 36060c57-aebd-4ccf-aba4-ef75121b5f77 802-11-wireless -- resin-wifi-01 a58e405d-fdc2-3649-9339-5bbaea740c76 802-11-wireless --
When I run ifconfig or iwconfig, it does not list wlan0.
From the forum post, I understand the next thing I need to do is
Just drop the below example configuration into a file inside the /boot/system-connections >directory on the SD card and name it resin-hotspot, next use the Network Manager DBUS API28 to >enable the connection called resin-hotspot.
However, I’m stuck at this - I’m totally new to this so probably misunderstanding, but I don’t have Python available on the resinos for example, or apt-get to install it. I modified the dockerfile for the container to install the python-networkmanager library, but when I import it it gives an error.
Can anyone help me understand how to proceed please?
(To give the use-case, before discovering resin I had a few Pis set up with an access point on a usb WiFi bridging through on eth0. Then I have a Python script getting data from some devices on this WiFi/private network and sending it up over the internet to a database. I’m now looking to switch this setup over to resin and scale it up to a more devices)
