Access Point / Hotspot

Jump to solution

So I recently got a new board and flashed it with the latest Yocto image. I have connected to the serial port with my computer and am using PUTTY to access the device.

However, I can't seem to figure out how to make Edison function as an access point. I have accomplished this before, but I can't remember what steps I took.

Here's what I tried:

systemctl disable wpa_supplicant

systemctl enable hostapd

ifconfig usb0 down (based on this: )

reboot

I've also tried the "hold the power button down for 4 seconds" trick and the "configure_edison --enableOneTimeSetup" (from here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/getting-started-with-ap-mode-for-intel-edison-board IoT - Getting started with Access Point (AP) Mode for the Intel® Edison board | Intel® Software ).

Still no dice. When I use my smartphone to attempt to access this network, it says it's authenticating, but no IP address is assigned and no connection is made.

So I figured out my issue. Apparently my phone had some incorrect settings that were not updated when the device was re-flashed. Simply telling my phone to first forget the network and then re-connecting is all that was truly needed.

Does anybody have an updated guide or BKM for this?
