no wireless interfaces?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

I tried to bridge a wireless interface to a wired Ethernet interface,
and it failed with "Operation not supported."

Looking at the kernel code, it seems like this is intentional.  I
noticed the following in br_add_if:

        /* No bridging devices that dislike that (e.g. wireless) */
        if (dev->priv_flags & IFF_DONT_BRIDGE)
                return -EOPNOTSUPP;

I'm curious to know why this is not supported.
