Can the Spark Core act as a WiFi access point?

Can the Spark Core act as a WiFi access point?

I would like to have my phone/tablet connect TO this device via WiFi. Is that possible?

Hi Dwak,
You might want to read the topic “Communication between Spark Cores” - I think this may answer your question.

Thank you. That was very informative.

No, the CC3000 (the WiFi module) can only connect to an Access Point.

Not directly, but with an Access Point where both devices are connected to.
