Hi. I have followed the instructions on this website to configure my intel edison as a wif access point:
$ systemctl stop wpa_supplicant
$ systemctl start hostapd
$ systemctl disable wpa_supplicant
$ systemctl enable hostapd
These commands work fine. The problem is when I restart intel edison. I connect with Putty, enter login/password, and when I execute the ifconfig command to see the established IP, I do not get a response and I verify that Edison's wifi does not appear in the list of available wifi.
How can I correctly configure intel edison as an access point? Thanks
Another way is to use a much more recent version of Yocto.
Connman has come a long way since the original image of edison was built. It now allows to tether wifi as well as bluetooth (so can act as an AP if you provide it with a WAN) .
