    Intel Galileo as Access Point (AP)

    AntonioG

      Hello to all the community.


      • I have a Intel Galileo gen1
      • with Image of Linux  of xbolshe (https://github.com/xbolshe/galileo-custom-images), which, it is helping me a lot,
      • and the wireless card Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 (that is why I use the image of linux, because the official image have an older version of the kernel).


      I want to create an access point with Intel Galileo and i would like to use the standar 802.11ac (it is for this reason that I bought this card)

       

      What are the steps to create the Access Point?

       

      A greeting.

      Thanks in advance.

      Antonio Guillen.

          Hello AntonioG,

           

          I have never tried this but if you'd like to implement AP mode on your Galileo, you would first have to check if your wireless card supports IEEE 802.11. If it does, it might be compatible with hostapd, in that case I'd suggest you to read https://w1.fi/hostapd/. You might also be interested in checking Edison's hostapd configuration (in case you have access to an Edison), which can be found in /etc/hostapd and /lib/systemd/system/hostapd.service.

            Hi,

             

            steps may be, for example, like this:

             

            Edit hostapd.conf as needed
            Configure DHCP server (like udhcpd)
            
            # systemctl stop wpa_supplicant
            # rfkill unblock wifi
            # hostapd -B /etc/hostapd.conf
            # udhcpd &
            

             

            BR,
