Bug#748640: RFP: ap-hotspot -- setup wireless hotspot



Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Package name : ap-hotspot

Version : 0.3.1

Upstream Author : Alin Andrei

URL : https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/webupd8/+packages?field.name_filter=ap-hotspot&field.status_filter=published&field.series_filter=

Description : setup wireless hotspot


AP-Hotspot automatically creates an infrastructure (Access Point mode) wireless

hotspot that should work with Android and Windows Phone devices. The script

uses hostapd and dnsmasq and it requires Access Point mode support for your

wireless card - AP-Hotspot checks for this automatically and won't run if your

wireless card doesn't support it.


- why is this package useful/relevant? is it a dependency for

another package? do you use it? if there are other packages

providing similar functionality, how does it compare?


I use it as Connectify (windows software) replacement, it works on Debian as

well as Ubuntu. It just work for me (well, my wireless driver support ap).

Right now, I still use the script from the *.tar and copy it to /usr/bin but I

think it will be nice to have it on Debian repository, so I can get update of

the script the same way as other package.


This script depend on:

hostapd

dnsmasq

iw
