      You can add wifi interface to the ovs bridge using below command,

      $ ovs-vsctl add-port {bridge-name} {wireless-adapter }

      e.g : ovs-vsctl add-port ovs-br0 wlan0

      Remove the IP from Wireless Adapter and assign the same IP to bridge

    Real good, easy steps. What would the steps be if you wanted to take an existing KVM setup with bridges in place and convert it over to OVS?

    Is the persistent network configs on the ovs for network-manager and not for networkd?
