Hi Ziajian,

This specific version of AddRoute only works with point-to-point links.

You could use the other version, which for the third parameter, instead of node name accepts either Ptr<Face> or face ID.  You would need to figure out in your scenario the proper ID.  The ID usually matches interface name, but you can double check by a simple debug trial.

You can also try to extend the first AddRoute method to work with other links, but it would not be efficient and not quite sure if it can even work correctly.

In my simulation, I want to manually configure FIB between a wifi node and AP node, like ndn::StackHelper::AddRoute ("Node0", "/data","Node1", 1) and the Node0  is a wifi node.  The packet cannot be forwarded. I see the definition of the function AddRoute. I found that the AddRoute just support point to point module.  Evidently, Now I don't know what I should do in the next step. Can you please give me some hints how to configure FIB routes between  a wifi node with a common node or between two wifi nodes
