Electric Imp as access point

Hello everybody,

I have spent some time searching for a similar thread, but I couldn’t find any.

I want to know if it is possible to setup Electric Imp as an access point (i.e: make it broadcast an SSID and let other devices connect to it).

My apologies if this has been asked before and please post the link to the thread if that is the case.


Funny that, been searching the very same topic as I know it is not possible with Imp. What I have found so far is TI’s CC3200 and certain Gainspan modules do. There is nothing stopping you from linking the imp with any of these two.

This mode is not supported with the imp (the hardware can do it, but it opens a huge can of worms about security etc so we don’t do it)
