Ethernet AP + Client WiFi
Big Grin 
I have an RPi4 running the latest openPlotter version. I managed to install a nice 36dB gain USB to WiFi device. it's a Realtek high power WiFi with integrated external antenna connected the RPi's USB that allows me to get connected to the Internet from my boat to a long distance AP (I guess my access range is near 1/2 mile).
So, I  have configured in the openPlotter's network for the Ethernet to work as AP (connected the Wan port of a low power GL-inet router, so I have access to the Internet from all my devices). I managed for the RPi to supply everything the router needs and to bridging to the mentioned long distance WiFi.
So far, the RPi's internal WiFi is (tied to the Ethernet AP) not really being used, but it would be FANTASTIC if I could define the such wan0 as client, so I can integrate the rest of the boat's instruments thru my existent Go-Free WiFi (configured as AP-hub)

QUESTION: How can I SEPARATE the Ethernet (working as AP) from the RPi's internal WiFi, so I can configure such internal WiFi as CLIENT?

Any advice would be highly appreciated! Smile
