Default Can a Mini 10v act as a wifi access point? - 10-15-2009, 03:32 AM


I have a clueless kind of question for you. Many thanks for any info.

Can a Mini 10v act as a wifi access point?
I am hoping to get another wifi-enabled device to talk to
the Mini 10v and it would be much more convenient to
avoid having to get a wifi router.
Is it possible to install some special hardware or software
in order to get the Mini 10v to act as an access point?

Thanks for any light you can shed on this question.

Do you mean as a bridge? You'd connect the other device to the 10v's LAN (wired network) and use the 10v to connect to a wireless network? That should be possible on pretty much any OS. Look for info on "sharing an internet connection" or "network bridging".
