Access point on 3B+ without a WiFi adaptor?

Mon May 13, 2019 8:19 am

Is it possible to run an access point on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, without a WiFi adaptor (using the internal WiFi chip)?

Yes.

I think that's not working. The link will describe AP mode on wlan0 device and on eth0 (ethernet port) internet access.
both adapters are bridged.
What's asked is AP function and internet connection on same wlan adaptor.

That's the 1st message of the OP, we have 0 context. How do you know he wants to use a wifi uplink?

You could be right, though. In this case the answer to the question is no, you need one adapter for the wifi AP and one adapter for the wifi client link.
