Wireless InterfacesΒΆ

Wireless, for example WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, interfaces allow for connection to WiFi networks or act as an access-point. If your device is configurable it will appear as wlan in show interfaces.

To be able to use the wireless interfaces you will first need to set a regulatory domain with the country code of your locaion.

set system wifi-regulatory-domain SE

An example on how to set it up as an access point:

set interfaces wireless wlan0 address '192.168.99.1/24'
set interfaces wireless wlan0 type access-point
set interfaces wireless wlan0 channel 1
set interfaces wireless wlan0 ssid '<your ssid>'
set interfaces wireless wlan0 security wpa mode wpa2
set interfaces wireless wlan0 security wpa cipher CCMP
set interfaces wireless wlan0 security wpa passphrase '<your passphrase>'

Resulting in

interfaces {
  [...]
  wireless wlan0 {
        address 192.168.99.1/24
        channel 1
        mode g
        security {
            wpa {
                cipher CCMP
                mode wpa2
                passphrase "<your passphrase>"
            }
        }
        ssid "<your ssid>"
        type access-point
    }
}
system {
  [...]

}

To get it to work as a access point with this configuration you will need to set up a DHCP server to work with that network.
