I’m using a Dell Edge Gateway 3001 running Ubuntu Server 18.04 to connect IoT Devices sharing the Ethernet (and GSM later on) connection. I’ve used the wifi-ap snap to configure the AP and it seem to work. Unfortuantely only one device can connect at a time. I’m trying with a Windows notebook & my IoT device (ESP32), and both can connect, but only if there’s no other device connected at that time.
Here’s my wifi-ap config
debug: true
dhcp.lease-time: 12h
dhcp.range-start: 192.168.7.2
dhcp.range-stop: 192.168.7.101
disabled: false
share.disabled: false
share.network-interface: eth0
wifi.address: 192.168.7.1
wifi.channel: 3
wifi.country-code: DE
wifi.hostapd-driver: nl80211
wifi.interface: wlan0
wifi.interface-mode: direct
wifi.netmask: 255.255.255.0
wifi.operation-mode: g
wifi.security: wpa2
wifi.security-passphrase: MyPassPhrase
wifi.ssid: DellGateway

Any ideas what could be the issue here?
