    Automatic switching between AP and STA

    fraguada

      Hello, This is maybe more a generic Linux networking question, so it should be possible with the Edison.

       

      Is it possible to write a service that switches to AP mode if none of the authorized APs it connects to are in range?  Let's say that I have the Edison at home, at work, and at a few other spots where I have credentials to access the Wifi Network.  In those locations, the Edison would work as a client.  Then, when I am out of range of the APs, and the Edison can no longer get a signal, it automatically switches to AP mode.  I can imagine that something like this would be possible by creating a service, but this is not something I have done yet in Linux.  I just wanted to poll other more experienced users out there if such a thing would be possible.

       

      Thanks,

      Luis
