I was looking for some advice, as everything that I have tried so far does not seem to work. What I would like to do is use my Pi3 as an access point for apartment of connected devices. Two things also need to be with this:
1) it will not have access to an ethernet cable, so it will have to receive and broadcast all over wifi
2) it will also be working as a server to display a webpage, and act as an MQTT broker for device communication.
I have followed along wtih the offical raspberry pi AP set-up (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... s-point.md), at the midpoint where it says to use a wireless device to discover the network, my network does not exist. The current set-up is a wifi dongle a USB port, and the internal antennia. I would like to receive the signal off of one of these, and broadcast off the other.
Is this possible, and any advice?
