Re: [Tutorial] Using the RasPi as a WiFi hostspot (8 Nov 12)

The whole ifplugd thing seemed to be a red herring for me. The only way I got it to work reliably was to put a script in to rc.local that brought down wlan0 put it back up, assigned ip and restarted hostapd and dhcp servers. Which is a bit rubbish. I suspect your race condition suggestion is correct...

Re: [Tutorial] Using the RasPi as a WiFi hostspot (8 Nov 12)

Ok it seems to boot up reliably now as a wireless access point but I have to bring my eth0 down and back up again before I can get it assigned an ip allowing me to ssh over wired. If I add this to rc.local then it won't finish booting at all if not's wired. I suppose a script that checked if it was ...

Re: [Tutorial] Using the RasPi as a WiFi hostspot (8 Nov 12)

Cheers I'll try that. Even with the changes to rc.local it only seems to work on boot half the time. I tried your tip of putting it in its own special if script but then it didn't work on boot at all, so I left the up down assign ip dance in rc.local. None of this seems an issue in wheezy, is jessie...

Would sudo apt-get remove ifplugd help?

Re: [Tutorial] Using the RasPi as a WiFi hostspot (8 Nov 12)

When I plug or unplug my wired ethernet into my pi it seems to kill my hotspot, ifconfig tells me the wlan0 has no ip, i have to bring it down, back up, assign an ip and manually restart hostapd before it comes back to life. Is this normal? How do I fix this?

nl80211: Could not configure driver mode
nl80211 driver initialization failed.
hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlan0 wasn't started

However when I try to read that data b...

Like the guy here I'd been using a mac keyboard and it had screwed up the soft links. Fixing the keyboard mapping and doing the install again sorted it.
