  1. I have two wireless interfaces wlan0, wlan1
  2. I want wlan0 to be connected to the internet via a wireless router
  3. and I want wlan1 to be in AP mode acting as a router to give internet access to whoever connectes to it.

So basically all packets coming through wlan1 should be forwarded to wlan0 => Router => Internet. That's including DNS/DHCP/etc..

[B]~~~~~(Wi-Fi)~~~> [me] ~~~~(Wi-Fi)~~~~~>[AP/Router]------->[internet]

Any idea how can I do this?

ps: I tried using bridges but I always get 'operation not supported' using the brctl tool.
