Hi, I'm totally new to openstack and without much resources I built a cloud with my pc as controller containing a wifi for internet and ethernet for internal connection also with my laptop again with a wifi and ethernet. Everything seems to be fine and I have an active instance but it has no network:

+--------------------------------------+------+--------+------------+-------------+----------+ | ID | Name | Status | Task State | Power State | Networks | +--------------------------------------+------+--------+------------+-------------+----------+ | 703c1663-5a1d-47c9-a9a8-466f75d5c802 | Ins1 | ACTIVE | - | Running | | +--------------------------------------+------+--------+------------+-------------+----------+

I'm using nova-network(Legacy) and I know I should create a network using nova network create and a bridge but I only have one interface on every node(ethernet) and was wondering what to do. Can anybody help?

BTW: Can a network node help? I have a raspberry pi that could be one.

AND: I know nothing of network bridging all I know is that if you setup a bridge in an interface like eth0 that interface becomes unaccessible

I don't think the problem is related to having a network node or not. Please update your question to include: How did you install OpenStack (Packstack, Devstack, …)? With which OpenStack user did you create the instance (admin, demo, …)? What is the output of nova network-list?
