Setup Wi-Fi Hotspot

If your board has an onboard AP6xxx IC run the following command to enter AP mode:

sudo turn-wifi-into-apmode yes

You will be prompted to type your WiFi hotspot's name and password and then proceed with default prompts.
After this is done you will be able to find this hotspot in a neadby cell phone or PC. You can login to this board at

ssh root@

When asked to type a password you can type "fa".

To speed up your ssh login you can turn off your wifi by running the following command:

sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off

To switch back to Station mode run the following command:

sudo turn-wifi-into-apmode no
