#1316 closed bug (support)

Applications don't see connection in wifi bridge mode

Reported by: marcfonteijn@… Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: fon-plugins Version: (Paco)
Severity: unknown
Cc: Hardware: 2.0n (FON2300)


After some fideling around I managed to connect my fon in wifi bridge mode and the connection works prefect. The only thing is that the applications like Transmission display the message "The La Fonera needs to be connected for this application to work.". Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

The most likely cause is that you made a mistake when entering the default gateway or DNS server in the Fonera internet settings.

In (wifi-)bridge mode, the Fonera needs those to connect to the internet. The computers attached to the Fonera, however, do not use these settings since they get their address, gateway and DNS server directly from your other router/modem through DHCP (which is why the computers can have a proper connection, while the Fonera doesn't).

Please check those settings and let us know if that helped. If you have further questions, just leave a comment here.

Correct. I already had the default gateway set. Now I added the DNS server and everything is working again. Thanks.

Must say that I did have to fiddle around to get the wifi bridge working. It took me quite some factory resets. Probably not a priority but it would be nice to at least get into the router when bridge mode fails.

Yeah, bridge mode is a bit of a challenge in that regard, since it's easy for the Fonera to get lost if you don't configure the right address or netmask. We've considered solutions for this, but most of them are tricky to implement or cumbersome to work with...
