There was a mention in older thread that it is possible to use wifi dongle as access point in future.
Is it possible already and if it is, how it is done? I could only get it to work as wifi client.
I use TL-WN823N adapter.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes that is true, the USB Wifi Dongle needs a Wifi Router it can connect to. I will provide some screenshots later, but you got it already running, right?
I got it to work as client (picture1). But I was hoping to get it to work in the way that I could see it in my laptops wifi connections (picture2). I'm not sure if that is possible?
My goal is to take connection to CtrlX wirelessly with any laptop/panel, not only with the one that is cofigured in CtrlX Wi-Fi settings.
Opening a WLAN must be a feature of your stick. As far as I found the one you are using is only a client. So you cannot set up one with this hardware.
we will release most likely the Wifi usage as Accesspoint/client by RM2207.
The handling for configuration is currently not supported by our web-ui. Manually setup with rest-api gets necessary to modify the default (client mode).
Please consider that 2 WiFi USB devices are supported right now but NOT both of them support AccessPoint-mode connected on the ctrlX.
The NETIS Wifi supports both Opmodes
The TP-Link provides only client mode in connection with the ctrlX.
Take care ording the exact type... other chipsets are not supported by the ctrlX-integrated drivers.
