Thank you for contacting us.
About your first question, I recommend you to check the following links:
I hope you find them helpful, regarding to link some Edison boards as clients with each other, I think it is possible and I found this document that can be useful for you: https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-109932.
Have a nice day.
Hi Leonardo, thank you very much for the quick response .
I had found something similar. I was not sure if there was a conflict with the operating system of the Edison,
when I install my own socket driver.
Anyway, i will start a test....
Another thing - which distance can bridge the edison per wifi (with antenna, freefield) ?
Thank you and greetings
The Edison Wi-Fi module uses the standard protocol, so you can find helpful information here: https://www.lifewire.com/range-of-typical-wifi-network-816564.
Personally, I recommend you to don't exceed the distance of 30 m to avoid issues losing data.
I bought an Intel Edison, i have tested something - it works fine. (iss + eclipse + Win10)
I have realized a wifi connectionto to an other PC (not the development PC) - it works also correct.
(but this connection uses a router....)
Next I would like to realize a wifi-direct Connection (with no router and no AP).
I think, the initialization of the Edison must be changed in this case.
(Is the 2nd wifi connection to the development System still available additionally ?)
The next step should be the connection of 2 edison's on this way. (wifi Direct)
I hope there is a helpful link again. :-))
Thanks and Regards,
The second Wi-Fi connection won't be available once you have connected the 2 Edison using Wi-Fi Direct. At this time the most helpful link is the same that I gave you before: https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-109932.
Have a nice day.
