DirtyBits

Hi Everyone,
I'm planning to make Wi-Fi Web-server to send and receive data from Smart phones.
Configuration as follows ( Router/AP not to be used!);


Which is the most economical Wi-Fi module with built-in server code/library for Arduino?
WIZFI210, wiFly, Flyport etc..??

Any help would be much appreciated!

One thing you need to investigate is whether the device(s) support ad-hoc networking. Most shields do not, since that takes quite a bit of effort. Connecting a WiFi shield to an existing network is one thing. Creating a network is quite a bit more complicated.

I don't know. If you do get one, and it works, be sure to let us know. I'd get one, then, to play with.

Sure ...  :D

The Arduino Hydrogen WiFi shield supports Adhoc networking. It's available at diysandbox.com and they claim that their library is compatible to the Arduino Ethernet library.

I can't verify  the latter statement as I have not yet had time to test that, however the samples that they host on github worked out "of the box" including the adhoc networking
