This will allow the Pi to be a wireless access point.
This may require feature changes/additions to bui-network-config.See:
RM #196: Enabled hostapd in buildroot configuration. A meaningful, default configuration (or support via
bui-network-config) still needs to be added.
#7 Updated by Hammel about 5 years ago
- % Done changed from 40 to 90
The reason hostapd doesn't come up is because the password in the psk file was too short. See RM #205.
If the password is fixed, hostapd comes up and I can connect to it from my android phone.
After #205 is fixed, I'll need some options in bui-network-config (see RM #206) to choose between running as an Access Point or as a wireless client. Only one or the other should run. This means that bui-network-config needs to save a marker under /etc/networks that tells S40network whether to start the wireless client or hostapd.
Once #206 is implemented I need to update S40network to use the marker file.
