Hi there !

my setup

AP: AP121U (ALFA)  - external Wifi-card: AR9271 (ALFA)

If I flash the pinapple firmware on the AP121U, will it recognise the AR9271 and will I be able to use it as an range extender ?

I need to bridge both wireless interfaces.

Right now, the AP121U is running openwrt(lede) and I cannot figure out how to do it. So I am hoping that maybe the Pinapple firmware

makes it easier. Any help very very much apreciated. Thanx !!

Im not sure about that exact model of ALFA card but after flashing the AP121U with the pineapple firmware you should install the networkmanager module.  You may also need to use a powered USB hub to connect the adapter to the pineapple.  I know there were several reports with issues connecting high power consumption adapters directly to the AP121U port.
