typical wifi router...plus...
I have built a linux wifi router. wifi is a hostap enabled interface. WAN is a PPP connection. All together this works great. Firewall, IPTables, DHCP, IPForwarding, all good. However, I wish to add the wired ethernet into this equation. I just haven't been able to find out exactly how to do this.
I want to have the wifi and wired interfaces to be the same as far as the IP address is concerned and the DHCP addresses that the server gives out to be the same subnet for both interfaces.
I want to have PCs connected to both interfaces to be able to "talk" to each other no matter if the PPP connection is established or not. Could it just be I need to add a whole slu of routes to the route table.?
So if anyone can give me a hint or a direction on where to go, please let me know. Thanks in advance.
