Thank you for your interest in the Intel Edison Board.
From what I understand you would like to use Edison as a hot-spot (AP Mode).
Just to clarify could you let me know if this is what you would like to achieve?
If so, you can find more info in the following WiFi Edison guide: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/edison/sb/edison_wifi_331438001.pdf
These are also some resources I found online that could also be of help:
Let me know if this helps.
