Hi,

Yes. Mesh isn't an ap mode. Non mesh devices won't see it.

I just put out mesh configuration in rc.conf

Something like that:



AC (I called it ap because it is ap in my usual days)

wlans_ath0="wlan0"

create_args_wlan0="wlanmode mesh"

ifconfig_wlan0="inet 192.168.11.1 netmask 255.255.255.240 meshid mybsd

channel 3"



Laptop

wlans_ath0="wlan0"

create_args_wlan0="wlanmode mesh"

ifconfig_wlan0="meshid mybsd channel 3 DHCP" # but dhcp didn't worked,

and use ifconfig wlan0 inet 192.168.11.2 netmask 255.255.255.240



After reboot I checked sta, it was associated, and I checked mesh (wlan0

list mesh), both hosts have seen each other.



What was after that, you have already known. One host (ap) sent packets,

another (laptop) was dumb even with arp.



Actually I had my mother notebook with windows, and cheapest wifi

repeater tenda a3, both devices couldn't see mesh network. Is it normal?





Unfortunately I will not be able to test HEAD's code.
