Orange Pi Zero hostapd problem



hi every body!

in last two days, i have been trying to make my orange pi zero board to hotspot device. i follow instruction at armbian documentation and it's work fine. but i want more than a simple bridge network. in order to use nginx to show my website to connected devices, i need to set ip to connected devices. i used both of isc-dhcp-server and dnsmesq, but it failed every time a device want to connect to board.


dnsmasq config:

interface config

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
  hostapd /etc/hostapd.conf

i did not change hostapd.conf


any help? am i missing something?


thank a lot.

Forget about using OPi0 as host AP. The wireless works but is shit due to hardware limitations and bad support from manufacturer. It will be extremely slow, and with more than 2 or 3 devices connected I'd say it would be completely unusable. Get a better orange pi or some other device with a decent wifi.

I don't know why my OPi zero wifi is extremely slow. 

Edit: not directly related to the wifi chip of opi zero, but it gives you some background.
