To create an interface-specific configuration you must create a new wifi section named radioN, where N is the radio index (to see WiFi devices list execute:
In the following example radio0 is used only for wireless client, radio1 is used only for Access Point with a custom ESSID name, and radio2 just for meshing.
WiFi interface-specific options (override general option), multiple allowed
config wifi radio0
list modes 'client'
option channel 'auto'
option client_ssid 'SomeWiFiNetwork'
option client_key 'SomeWPApskPassword'
option client_encryption 'psk2'
config net wirelessclientWAN
option linux_name 'wlan0-sta'
list protocols 'wan'
config wifi radio1
list modes 'apname'
option apname_ssid 'MyHouse'
config wifi radio2
list modes 'ieee80211s'
option ieee80211s_mesh_fwding '0'
option ieee80211s_mesh_id 'LiMe'
The first section configures one radio interface to be only a wireless client (station associated to a wireless access point).
The second section configures the just created client interface for obtaining an IP from the access point DHCP server. The employed name
wlan0-sta has to match the name of the interface created by the first section.
The specific-interface configuration sections must be appended in file /etc/config/lime in addition to the already existing generic configuration.
In the third section,
radio1 is configured for just being an access point with custom ESSID name, each specified option overrides the respective general WiFi option (listed in The config file page), all the non-specified options (like
channel) are taken from the general wifi section.
Specifying an entry of a list, replaces the entire list (for example, setting the
apname entry to the
modes list means that for this interface,
apname will be the only active mode).
To apply the changes run
In the just reported example,
radio0 has to exist (check with
wifi status) and also
wlan0-sta has to be created by the first section in order to be used in the second section (after running
lime-config, check with
ip link show).
Network interface specific options
Available protocols: bmx6, bmx7, batadv, olsr, olsr6, olsr2, bgp, wan, lan, manual, static, babeld, apbb, client
Note that some of these protocols will require the relative
lime-proto-... package being installed, otherwise the protocol entry will be ignored.
proto:vlan_number works too (something like bmx6:13 is supported). If VLAN is 0, no VLAN will be used.
VLAN type defaults to 802.1ad, but it can be set to 80.1q adding another option
If you use manual do not specify other protocols, may result in an unpredictable behavior/configuration.
