Wi-Fi Ad-hoc network using WL1271

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out if there is ad-hoc Wi-Fi network support in WL1271. I can see that there is an option to connect to an existing ad-hoc network in the CLI application. However I couldn't find a way to create an ad-hoc network that other WL1271 chips would connect to.

Could you please tell me if the above is possible in WL1271 and if not are there any plans for that?

Thank you very much in advance,

Nestor

  • Hi Nestor,

    Yes, Ad-hoc Wi-Fi support is there in WL1271.

    You can configure the WL1271 from wlan_cu CLI to create an IBSS network using the following command lines:
    / Management Mode 0
    / Management Channel 6
    / Connection Connect MyWiFiNet

    The above commands create an IBSS network with SSID 'MyWiFiNet' on channel 6.

    Create an adhoc network, then connect other Wi-Fi stations to it.

    Thanks,

    Thank you very much for the answer Sinoj.

    Do you know if it is possible to request a specific security (eg. WEP, WPA) to be used for the created Ad-hoc network and to specify the key/passphrase to be used for accessing that ad-hoc network?

    Best regards,

    Nestor

    Hi Nestor,

    The only security mode that is supported in Ad Hoc mode is WEP.

    Please have a look on below thread:

    http://e2e.ti.com/support/dsp/omap_applications_processors/f/307/t/53968.aspx

     

    To configure the WL1271 to WEP, in ad-hoc mode, you may run the following commands on the CLI:

    / Management Mode 0
    / Management Channel 6
    / Privacy Authentication 0
    / Privacy encRyption 1
    / Privacy Wep add 1234567890 0 1
    / Connection Connect MyWiFiNet

    Thanks,

    Sinoj
