#4055 closed defect (worksforme)

b43 in master mode no traffic through bridge

Reported by: Hauke <hauke@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: base system Version:
Keywords: b43 Cc:


On brcm47xx with b43 wireless driver on my Asus WL-500 GP with svn r12766 the bridge between the wireless master interface and the switch is not working correctly.

I am able to set up an AP with the scripts and I am able to connect to this AP with an other wireless client. When I want to connect to some other host behind the AP I do not get a connection to it. I am only able to get a connection to the AP. I installed kamikaze and enabled the AP mode in /etc/config/wireless and then said "wifi up".

The master interface uses the IP of the bridge like the lan interface but they can not communicate with each other, but the AP is able to ping all clients on all interfaces.

I got nearly the same problem but in a other constellation.
It helps me to open the firewall for "forward" in /etc/config/firewall

config defaults

option syn_flood 1
option input ACCEPT
option output ACCEPT
option forward ACCEPT

config zone

option name lan
option input ACCEPT
option output ACCEPT
option forward ACCEPT

Good luck.

I am able to send traffic between clients on the bridge using hostapd 0.6.5 (committed in [13275]) on a WRT54GL running brcm47xx. Can you retest with a recent revision?
