Topic: Arduino Yun as a UMTS Access Point (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic



I was thinking about using the arduino yun  as an 3G/4G access point for WiFi devices. Using a USB 3G/4G Modem (e.g. Huawei) should be possible, given a compatible Modem Key under Linux.

But how about the WiFi of the andruino yun acting as Access Point? I was reading:

"the YÚN has two separate network interfaces, a 10/100 mbit/s fast ethernet port and a IEEE 802.11 b/g/n standard compliant 2.4ghz Wi-Fi interface, supporting WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption. the Wi-Fi interface can also operate as an access point (AP). in AP mode any WIFI enabled device can connect directly to the network created on the YÚN. while a YÚN in this mode can't connect to the internet, it could act as a hub for a group of Wi-Fi enabled sensors."

Dos this mean that while the WiFI adapter is in host mode (acting as Access Point), it is not possible to route the incoming WiFi traffic to the USB Modem? Or is the restriction mentioned above limited to the WiFi Adapter? What about the Ethernet Adapter?



That description does not imply any limitation. It's intended to describe people what comes out of the box. You can do whatever linux and openwrt allow you to do. Keep us posted, it seems cool stuff :)
