Yet Another weird problem: wifi bridge, internet sharing

Well, it seems like I've yet come up with another problem waiting to be solved.

I've tried hostapd, dnsmasq, create_ap and linux-wifi-hotspot (all of them are almost the same or based off hostapd and dnsmasq), all of them gave me the same results: Other devices connect successfully, but there is no internet connection. Now, I can't connect to the ap either. I wonder why this is the case for manjaro kde. I've successfully connected and established internet connection on neon KDE before, using create_ap and hostapd. Thus, I believe this can't be a driver issue or programm issue. I don't understand where I've gone wrong.

I've attached a screenshot that might be helpful? In case anyone needs more information please ask :smiley:

The dump right above this line shows that I can't even connect to the thing now...

I really hope someone out there can help :sweat_smile:

Also, I'm not usre if it's related, but KDE connect doesn't work as well. Refer to KDE Connect: computer not finding phone, phonedoesn't find computer

Empty bumps rarely result in getting you more assistance (as well as being a violation of forum rules). In addition pictures/screencaps of terminal outputs also tend to get your help request ignored. Please edit your original post and remove the pic and replace it with properly formated text outputs.

Just sayin, learn to post your help requests in the proper manner if you want to maximize your chances of getting
help.

aight, thanks for the advice :smiley:
