Routing/bridging

Postby tomikpik » Sat Nov 14, 2015 12:34 am

Hi, I would like to know whether the new ESP32 will be able to bridge wifi interfaces (softAP + station) or act as a router.
Thank you
Tom

yes, it supports soft-AP + station. but so does ESP8266, although ESP8266 is kinda limited in terms of resources for this application.

Hi John,
I think what Tomiktik ask is if there will be some real automatic bridging/routing between AP and STA at lower layer or even by the hardware, which ESP8266 can not do currently, at least with current SDKs. In such case, clients packets can be received by AP and re-directed to outside world, such internet, via the STA.

there are some improvements in ESP32 to simplify the way packets are handled. so with minimal software intervention, we might be able to handle a certain number of connections. and btw, we have an Ethernet port as well.

Hi john - this Core 108 is great base for the ESP32 - hope you spend many same functions/layers in the chip - there are infos about base / standards from tensilica on net like this

i am so happy for 108 - this on 108 based ESP will rock the world again! :P

I know from developer letter, not all futures are supported ( no USB )
but this i think is not need if we have wireless.

I eagerly await the datasheet ... and I'm so excited :) what you have implanted.
I count the seconds ..

:D
best wishes

@ tomikpik
I dig up the cellar.
after few time and try#s, there comes perhabs a custom proof of concept with ETH and Wifi after the summer vacation.
still in tests and I am satisfied so far. I use it for a LAN to WIFI bridge.
best wishes
