I'm trying to come up with a way to make an arduino wireless access point. I've googled around for ages trying to find an answer to the problem but had no luck.

Once I've got it I aim to embed it into something else.

Please Help!

EDIT: It also needs wps if possible

What do you want to achieve? The Arduino itself cannot be an access point, there are much too less resources for this. Depending on you desired application there may be alternatives, either using an Arduino or another platform.

I just want an embedable wireless access point that preferably has wps

Define *embeddable"! What's "wps"?

I believe this is what you are looking for:

hope that helps.

This is a shield that is able to setup an adhoc network but it does not provide a WiFi access point. So if the purpose of your question is to be able to setup a device without having an access point available this shield (or another option with the same hardware base) might fulfill your needs. If you want to have a WiFi access point choose another option.

This was true up to version 2.36. in the newer versions (last one is 4.41) AP is a full supported feature. :)

Thanks.

It appears that the ESP8266 is able to do this. I also am trying to make the Arduino an access point for P-P networking... The Wido board that I assumed would do this does not. it does all the config for you and does not give you access to the AP command set.

I have my order for ESP8266 on the bay.....

searching also  :smiley-lol:

The thing i would try to do is upload a DD-WRT Firmware trough SD in the Arduino that creates a AP trough the ethernet shield and Send signal from the ethernet shield to the wifi trough the arduino

Could sound stupid.

 i've just ordered the ethernet shield and sensors and shizzle to control my skylux then going to look to command the arduino trough Wifi with the android  ;-)

The easiest and almost  foolproof way to connect to an Arduino board through WiFi is to use an Ethernet Shield connected to a little WiFi pocket router such as the TP-Link TL WR702n. That little router comes out of the box in AP mode and you can connect to it immediately.

Aside from being a bit more bulky than a WiFi shield it has many advantages that NO currently available WiFi shed or module offers.

One of them is that it is VERY reliable. I have used this in several projects that have been in continuous operation for months (it would be years if not for the occasional power outages in my area).

Another one is that you can use the normal Ethernet library that is very mature and battle hardened.

Naturally it supports WPS,WPA etc.
