I am trying to create a 802.11 Mesh Network using BBG-W. It seems to me that it should be possible as TI has advertised that their WiLink 8 modules are capable of this type of network.
I first tried to use “sudo iw phy phy0 interface add mesh0 type mp mesh_id mymesh”, but it returns “Operation not supported (-95)”. Then, I noticed that “iw list” says only:
" Supported interface modes:
So no mesh…
I am using “BBGW-blank-debian-8.5-seeed-iot-armhf-2016-07-10-4gb.img.xz” image.
I hope this is a driver related problem, is that it?
If so, how should I proceed? Follow http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/WiLink8_Linux_Getting_Started_Guide to create a compatible image?
