Re: Wired to Wireless on AT Computer

David Cameron - IRLP
 

Alternately, you can just add the SSID and Preshared Key info into the interfaces file and not bother with wpa_supplicant now:

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
        address 10.1.1.31
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        gateway 10.1.1.1
        wpa-ssid NameOfYourWiFiNetwork
        wpa-psk SuperSecretWifiPassword

If you use a USB Wifi that is supported in Linux, it should be just plug and play. By default on an IRLP install it will come up as wlan0 if recognized.

Plug it in, then run

dmesg

and look at the last few lines. Any errors should show up there.

I assume you'd log in, you'd look at "ifconfig -a" to find the name of the new interface (probably wlan0 but maybe something like wlp1s0, almost certainly begins "w" anyway), then you'd edit it into /etc/network/interfaces somewhat like:

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
        address 10.1.1.31
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        gateway 10.1.1.1
        wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

... and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf would include something like:

network={
        ssid="NameOfYourWiFiNetwork"
        psk="SuperSecretWifiPassword"
}

USUALLY Linux would just autoconfigure it using DHCP and stuff, but if I recall, IRLP install disables this.

"sudo iwlist wlan0 scan" if you're not sure of the name of your WiFi network and want to scan.

Re: Wired to Wireless on AT Computer

I use a DD-WRT router as a bridge connection to my main router in my PC test configuration at home:

 

 

There's no radio on it so I can't speak to the wireless being able to handle the IRLP data throughput, although I can watch Internet videos on another PC without issue.

 

The idea is to find a compatible router, flash it with DD-WRT firmware, and configure it as necessary.  Just about any "junk pile" router will be compatible.  There are actually several types of repeater modes, some better than others, but they depend on the hardware in use and your level of administrative access to the main router.

 

DD-WRT page:

 

 https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

 

Lots of reading and lots of variables to consider!

Re: Wired to Wireless on AT Computer

Bridging the devices isn't going to provide any benefit unless devices on your wired network need connectivity through the (now default) wireless network.  If you need to do that, you'll need to run parprouted to proxy arp between the device bridge. 

The only difficulty I have had running IRLP on a wireless interface is when upgrading to Buster on a Pi.  The changes required seem to affect wpa_supplicant when used with dbus options.  Removing that through a different systemd unit file resolved the issue.

You only have two choices here with this radio. Either "squelched and de-emphasis" or "unsquelched and flat".

Unless the radio itself has a problem (and doesn't seem that is does) it is a very good radio for this. Again, I would clean up the wiring and make sure the levels are setup correctly.

Debian System Updates over IRLP_VPN

Edited

Is it OK to do the System Updates while connected to the IRLP_VPN? 
I did an "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade" on Buster, and realised that I was still connected through the IRLP_VPN.
I think the upgrade download was around 400 MB.
Thanks.
