Creating Own Ad-hoc Network

Top  Previous  Next

Rather than associating with somebody else's network, the Wi-Fi interface can create an ad-hoc network of its own and have other devices associate with it. This is done by using wln.networkstart. Note that wln.networkstart is a wln task and there is a certain correct way of handling tasks.

Wln.networkstart will be rejected (return 1- REJECTED) if:

Another task is currently in progress.

GA1000 add-on module is not online (wln.enabled= 0- NO).

The Wi-Fi interface is already in the non-idle state (wln.associationstate<>0- PL_WLN_NOT_ASSOCIATED). That is, you can't start a network when you are already associated or running a network.

The method will return 0- ACCEPTED if the task is accepted for processing.

 

To start a network, you only need to make up your mind regarding its name and operating channel:

 

 

'take control and run your own network

wln.networkstart("VOICEOFREBELS",6)

While wln.task<>PL_WLN_TASK_IDLE
