  1. I downloaded a new image from here: https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-zero/#nightly If you want to delete a virtual network interface you can write a script that will be executed on boot. Since I used nmcli to create the interfaces I would use that to delete them as well.
  2. As I understand it, hostapd uses entropy for cryptographic functions, so even though you have an open network (i.e, no password required to connect to it), you would still need entropy to establish a secured, encrypted connection between server and client (kind of like https on a website that does not require authentication). Of course, I could be mistaken about the cause of the issues discussed here and about how hostapd actually works, so it is just an educated guess on my part. At any rate, the source code is available here for inspection: https://w1.fi/cgit/hostap/tree/
  3. I was able to run AP and Client modes simultaneously by switching to the 4.9.4 kernel! Thanks!
  4. Do you mean that you have both AP and Station mode running simultaneously on two different network virtual interfaces by using 4.9.3?
  5. I'm also trying to setup ap+managed. Individually, I can have a station or ap and it works fine. When I have both interfaces, only one of them is functional. One thing to keep in mind is that both station and ap need to use the same channel, as I understand it.
  6. If you just want to setup an access point, you can use nmcli, like this: sudo nmcli connection add type wifi ifname * con-name my-connection-name autoconnect yes ssid MySSID mode ap sudo nmcli connection modify my-connection-name 802-11-wireless.mode ap 802-11-wireless-security.key-mgmt wpa-psk ipv4.method shared 802-11-wireless-security.psk 'MyPassword123456' sudo nmcli connection up my-connection-name
  7. Perhaps this reddit post will help you: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux4noobs/comments/32cx8b/linux_entropy_hostapd/
  8. I'm trying to set my OPI Zero in dual mode. Could you please share your steps?
  9. It appears to me that your system does not have enough entropy generated to establish a secure connection for the access point. The reason your "workaround" seems to work is because it helps create entropy.
