Wireless

The wireless module allows you to control and provision a qualified wireless networking device as an access point. The wireless card must both have network support under ClearOS as a wlan0 device and it must also support the 'master' mode configuration for wireless devices.

Installation

Currently the wireless module is installed only from command line using the following command:

yum install app-wireless

Once installed the module will appear in Webconfig under Network > Settings > Wireless Access Point

Configuration

At the time of this writing the wireless app module will only provide the ability to stop and start the wireless services and will give informative information about how it is configured. To change settings you must edit the file by hand from command line:

vi /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf

WPA2 PSK mode

hw_mode=g
channel=6
ssid= WIRELESS
auth_algs=1
ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd
