OK, so how do I put the TCP service software programmed with Free-Pascal onto that cheap AP?drgeoff wrote:Easier, neater and cheaper to buy a $15 AP from ebay and don't connect it to the internet.
You have not explained why any ordinary unmodified Wi-Fi AP is not adequate for your needs. It provides IP connectivity between its clients and if it is not plugged into an internet feed those clients cannot access the internet.Bosse_B wrote:OK, so how do I put the TCP service software programmed with Free-Pascal onto that cheap AP?drgeoff wrote:Easier, neater and cheaper to buy a $15 AP from ebay and don't connect it to the internet.
It is compiled for the ARM7 on a Pi2.

I still need the updated hostapd for Jessie as only the updated hostapd uses the right ioctl calls to enable WAP in the RealTek driver.Bosse_B wrote:Got through most of the AdaFruit AP instructions but skipped the replacement of hostapd for the adafruit version because I am running Jessie and it should have an up-to-date hostapd.
Sorry, I wasn't clear - what I meant to say was that by using the hostapd I linked to, WAP worked with Jessie.Bosse_B wrote:You might want to have a look there even though I am not completely done yet (DHCP is not working).
