So you just run the command:
It will show an output like this:
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN qlen 1000 link/ether 00:0c:29:28:fd:4c brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 192.168.50.2/24 brd 192.168.50.255 scope global eth0 inet6 fe80::20c:29ff:fe28:fd4c/64 scope link valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
The string right after the colon (you may have multiples interfaces, listed like 1: 2: etc) will be your identifier. Usually wireless is wlpxxx or wlanxxx, but the numbers at the end may vary based on your config.
Note: I just want to let everybody knows that the config i posted before does work and makes Proxmox accessible on wifi, but breaks the VMs connections to the bridge / internet. I still have to find some time to look into this to fix it.
Thanks for your prompt reply.
The problem is my NUC has a wifi network card but it is not seen from Proxmox.
To lspci command I get: 01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7265 (rev 59)
But no active wifi network card is listed when I run the command ip a :
3: wlp1s0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state DOWN group default qlen 1000
link/ether 74:d8:3e:74:69:04 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
The wlp1s0 is listed as down
I cannot understand if the built-in wifi card is the one labelled as wlp1s0 but it is not active or if there is another card not listed.
Understood you have not reached the end of the line accessing wifi from VMs, but I'll be a leech for your good results.
