Possible to see available wifi while being acess point? Orange pi zero

Recommended Posts

I'm using an Orange pi zero H2 and currently have the pi configured as an access point.  I want to be able to SSH into pi using access point wifi, then switch pi onto my home wifi network.

When I use the "nmtui" utility I no longer see any available wifi networks.  Is it possible to see available wifi networks when I am using the pi as an access point?

 

Thanks,

orangepi noob

XR819 is the WiFi chip used on OPiZeroH2+. Most Armbian hate that chip since it provide poor performance, and driver is a bit crappy.

 

STA means STATION and AP means AccessPoint. So, if you wish to have both at the same time, I doubt the driver and/or chip support both mode at the same time ...

 

What you can do is attach a second WiFi thru USB.
