How can I change the ip address of AP mode from 192.168.42.1 to something else

I have a system with three Edison's each of which is in AP mode. They have different ssid's so I can connect to whichever one I want with an ESP8266 so that seems fine. But I anticipate problems and it is certainly difficult for development to not be able to log onto the one I want because they all have the same address.

The only place I can find 192.168.42.1 is in this file wpa_cli-actions.sh

The address is hard coded with this line

ifconfig $GIFNAME 192.168.42.1 up

I am looking for a config file that has the address but can't find it.

I would like each of my units to work with a different address for example

192.168.42.1

192.168.43.1

192.168.44.1

etc.

Hi Allen,

 

 

Thanks for your patience. I have been investigating how to accomplish it, since the AP mode is supported through hostapd, I have been modifying the /etc/hostapd/udhcpd-for-hostapd.conf file following this: http://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Wireless_AP_with_udhcpd_and_NAT http://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Wireless_AP_with_udhcpd_and_NAT, however, the Edison always shows the same IP, 192.186.42.1. I would like to let you know that I'll continue investigating in order to know how it could be perform. If you have any update, please let me know.

 

 

Regards,

Thank you for your effort on my behalf. I wanted to let you know that I have worked around this issue and no longer need to change the address. There does not seem to be a conflict between two APs with the same address. It only is a conflict if they are on the same network and that can't happen with two APs. Again, thank you for your efforts.
