Creating A WAP

To set up your wireless access point, you first need to start the appropriate driver for your network adapters.

Note: Not all network adapter hardware will support operating as an access point. Refer to the documentation for your specific hardware for further information.

For the wireless access point samples, we'll use the fictitious driver for the wireless chipsets, and the equally fictitious driver for the wired interface. After a default installation, all driver binaries are installed under the directory $QNX_TARGET/cpu/lib/dll.

Use one of the following commands:

If the driver is installed in a location other than /lib/dll, you need to specify the full path and filename of the driver on the command line.

The next step to configure your WAP is to determine whether it will be acting as a gateway or a bridge to the rest of the network, as described below.
