Sounds interesting. I'm looking at one link in the google list provided by oldjake and I have a question. First, here's the link: https://github.com/peebles/rpi3-wifi-st ... /README.md
OK, I have already set up an AP for one of my pi 3's. To have internet, I have to connect an ethernet cable from Pi to router. Without the cable, I can still ssh into Pi but without internet. Looking at the article in the link above it says
The Rpi 3 wifi chipset can support running an access point and a station function simultaneously. One use case is a device that connects to the cloud (the station, via a user's home wifi network) but that needs an admin interface (the access point) to configure the network. The user powers on the device, then logs into the access point using a specified SSID/password. The user runs a browser and connects to the access point IP address (or hostname), which is running a web server to configure the station network (the user's wifi).
Another use case might be to create a guest interface to your home wifi. You can configure the client side with your wifi particulars, then configure the access point with a password you can give out to your guests. When the party's over, change the access point password.
What do I do for the first case. With my wired setup, I boot up, find the ap using wicd-curses and log in using SSID/password. So how is this done wirelessl? In the second case they say to edit /etc/network/interfaces.d/ap..... where do I find that? And will this be wireless/wireless?
Still learning this so it's a little confusing
Thanks for any info...
