Joggler as a wireless bridge?

Post by markeh » Tue Jul 31, 2012 5:12 pm

Hi,

I've been using the joggler as a wireless bridge using both the windows xp and joli os images which has been great but after a while they tend to not work so well, quite often because I will power off the joggler accidentally. While putting pnpIII on my joggler I thought it may be possible to have the joggler function as a bridge with the standard OS and therefore no problem with the image being corrupted when it's accidentally powered off.

The wireless is the source I want to share via ethernet to a satellite receiver. So if I just enable eth0, there should be some way to bridge ra0 to it?

I have no idea how to proceed from here, after googling around it seems I should install bridge-utils but apt-get doesn't work, so how would I enable / get this happening?

Any help would be great :?
