Neat. Btw, what is the issue that is blocking you from making an access point?
Mostly asking because I can’t seem to make wifi work properly even in client mode with a static ip. I’ve tried the /etc/network/interfaces declaration way which didn’t connect at all, now I’m using the network manager set to connect with a static ip, which does connect, but no traffic gets through. Pinging the router gives destination host unreachable somehow. Did you manage to make this part work or is wifi shot in general?
I’m used to the raspbian way using wpa_supplicant, but I can’t seem to find an ubuntu equivalent if there even is one. Supposedly /etc/network/interfaces is all that should be needed?
