    Hi All,
    I want to configure my UDOO QUAD to send out its own wireless network so that it is accessible on my boat without other networks needed.

    Does anybody know if that is possible and how to configure that?

    cheers!

    Hey there, I'd be interested by your solution if you manage to have your UDOO acting as a WIFI access point.
    (I'll receive mine in mid march so can't test right now :/ )

    Hi, I have access point on arch linux and kernel 4.4. Please try find out some howto for your distro like ubuntu and configure it with them. If you have some problem feel free to ask.

    The hostapd provided with UDOObuntu 2 can act as a wifi hotspot. Just follow the simple guides you can find on the net.

    Francesco, you are right. But which one suitable for UDOO quad? I already try using "UDOObuntu 2.0 RC2 (Ubuntu 14.04)" image. I already try many time but not successful yet. Maybe you can point to me which guides that are suitable for UDOO quad board. Thanks

    watervl, i already test but not successful. Thank you,my problem solved. I used tutorial AP setting for Raspberry pi at adafruit. Before make any setting on UDOO as AP, i need to remove networking management in UDOO. After that i can used Raspberry pi tutorial and skip wpa_supplicant.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge network-manager
