    Intel Edison as a Wi-Fi hotspot using external USB to Ethernet adapter and WLAN?

    haxor

      Hi,

       

      I am wondering if it is possible to make a Wi-Fi hotspot from Intel Edison with the access to the Internet? I would use AX88772B based USB to Ethernet link to provide "eth0" interface on Edison. This interface would be connected to the Internet via router. Then I would configure the wlan0 to Access mode to allow the users to connect to it. From purely technical view, is there any big obstacle in configuring Intel Edison to do a bridge between eth0 to wlan0 interfaces before I start experimenting with it? Now I am waiting for USB OTG cable, I will write about my first tests in 4 or 5 days.

       

      Thanks for any help.

       

      Best,

      Marek.
