I have a circa 2014 spark.io developer’s kit and I’m trying to to develop and application that uses the spark as a wifi accesspoint and also supports mdns. Does anyone know if I need to upgrade to a particle? Also, any clues on available software/configuration to support the particlle/spark as a wifi accesspoint (with dhcp) and mdns?
AFAIK, the CC3000 used on the Spark Core is not capable of acting as an AP.
And for the Particle Photon you can currently only use the SoftAP feature in Listening Mode - making it available in user mode is a feature for 0.8.0 (I think).
But there already is an mDNS library
(no idea how well this works)
