  1. Following this discussion (link: https://community.infineon.com/t5/Wi-Fi-Combo/Looking-for-details-regarding-CYW43455-concurrent-Stat...), it is mentioned that the CYW43455 module can work simultaneously as both an Access Point (AP) and a Station if I use WICED.
  2. I will try using WICED on my Linux system, but I can't find support for the CYW43455 module in Debian Linux.
  3. Is it stable to have the Access Point (AP) and Station working simultaneously using WICED? I have already tried using softAP for simultaneous AP and Station functionality, but it was not stable.

Hi,

I checked with the internal team and WICED will be able to support simultaneous AP and STA i.e.(apsta application) in the same band, same channel configuration. STA in one band and AP in the other band is not supported by 43455. The thread quoted by you needs to be corrected. Thank You for bringing this up.

Thanks

Aditi

Hi,

Is there any specific requirement to use WICED or WWD (Wiced WiFi driver)? Have you explored FMAC driver with 43455?

Thanks

Therfore, I want try that on bcm2835 with debian linux.

I have already tried using softAP for simultaneous AP(hostapd) and Station(wpa_supplicant) functionality, but it was not stable.

Hi,

Have you already tested hostapd and wpa_supplicant with FMAC driver using 43455? Can you provide more details on the issues you faced here?

You mentioned you want to use debian linux. Will this OS be running on the device? I'm asking this because WICED stack supports freeRTOS/ThreadX.

Thanks
