I recently setup a wavelan bridge using LRP http://www.linuxrouter.org .
Everything works fine for the most part. It seems that the NWID of the
wavelan cards is being ignored by Linux and the cards are attempting to
send/receive packets from other antennas with different NWID's. The network
is setup as displayed in the wireless.gif <<wireless.gif>>
Bridge C and D are the ones having problems. Client C's traffic seems to be
picked up by bridge C and D, even though client C's NWID is set to bridge
C's so logicly it should send to C and bridge D should ignore any traffic
that doesn't have its NWID attached. I have bridge D turned off since no
one uses it currently. Is there a way using brcfg or ifconfig in linux to
tell the wavelan to only accept traffic from the same NWID or from specific
MAC addresses of other wavelan cards?
I'd rather stick with a bridge than go with a router/firewall configuration
due to performance and simplicity reasons.
