I just bought some ESP8266 modules and had connected them properly and getting an OK messege on AT command. I am new to Wifi and don't know much about networking. I want to communicate between two arduinos with two (or three) of those modules by sending text from one to another. However i don't have any other AP so i can't connect to internet. Can anyone please help me regarding this. Any help will be appreciated.
However i don't have any other AP
Are the ESP8266 modules capable of creating a wireless network? Or, are they only capable of connecting to an existing network?
https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13252 has some information. The Nurd wikepedia article looks like it was written in Chinese, translated to French, then to Russian, and then to English. Much of It makes Little sense, and the Random capitalization makes the Owners look like Idiots.

Both and allegedly at the same time though I have not tried.
Search youtube for ESP8266 as there are a good number of videos like below concerning this module and its operation.
Better be prepared for some long frustrating sessions . I'm starting to think I will wait till something better comes along. Not interested too much in distance its much more the reliability of electrical connections . Bread board stuff is a nightmare of burning out jumpers and bad connections. They use a lot of power from the usb
@PaulS: Yes it is capable, i tried it once and it was working fine.
@zoomkat: Thanks for the link. Although my final problem isn't solved yet but i was able to host a webpage from the module server and send some information to my laptop. What i intend to do is to use another module instead of my laptop.
@b-james: Power is not an issue as the modules are supposed to be stationary in the final project so i took the power(3.3V) from an external power socket.
