The software image includes a build of compat-drivers from 3.8 so a large amount of wireless devices are supported. Some devices support AP/Master mode which can be used to host an access point. The WIFI-N-USB-2 module we provide also supports this mode.
First install hostapd to manage the access point:
apt-get update && apt-get install hostapd -y
Edit /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf to include:
interface=wlan0 driver=nl80211 ssid=YourAPName channel=1
|Note:||Refer to the kernel's hostapd documentation for more wireless configuration options.|
To start the access point launch hostapd:
hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf &
This will create a valid wireless access point, however many devices will not be able to connect without either a static connection, or a DHCP server. Refer to Debian's documentation for more details on DHCP configuration.
