I have AP mode working well, thanks to some information that I’ve found in this forum. I’m now interested in find out if it’s possible to run the TX1 in both STA and AP mode simultaneously, as is possible with many SoCs today.
I did some digging and found these WiFi modes in bcmdhd.h:
#if 0 && (0>= 0x0600) /* Firmware requested operation mode */ #define STA_MASK 0x0001 #define HOSTAPD_MASK 0x0002 #define WFD_MASK 0x0004 #define SOFTAP_FW_MASK 0x0008 #define P2P_GO_ENABLED 0x0010 #define P2P_GC_ENABLED 0x0020 #define CONCURENT_MASK 0x00F0 #endif
These shows STA 0x01, and AP mode 0x02.
However, there’s also a concurrent_mask, which may indicate that you can run in STA + either P2P or hostAP… according to function: dhd_is_concurrent_mode() in this code:
I’m not sure if that interpretation is correct, or if the TX1 hardware supports this even if the driver has provisions for it.
Does anyone have experience with this?
