Hello, I'm new to arduino, but have quite a bit of programming under my belt so forgive me if I am missing some arduino specific knowledge!
Is it possible to use the softAP function of the ESP32? I am getting a compile error 'class WiFiClass' has no member named 'softAP' I assume its because I'm using the WiFiNINA library that is recommended for the MKR1010.
Is there a similar function in the WiFiNINA library? If not can I use another library with the MKR1010 board?
If it helps to describe my application at all:
I have two MKR1010 boards that I want to communicate to each other. I Will have a TX unit that will report sensor readings and an RX unit that will put them to work. The RX will have a small LCD for showing status, etc. and a few buttons.
I do not want to connect to an existing WiFi network, and ideally the two units would just auto pair and would be invisible to other WiFi devices... Short of that I could use the softAP functionality and connect with a third device to configure/pair the TX and RX units. What is the best approach for this?
