Photon as WiFi router with DHCP

My product uses photons and apple mobile products. Apple required cell data connection to make a local hotspot, so I can’t use its hotspot capabilities. I currently produce a WiFi router supporting DHCP. I was wondering if any of the photon WiFi would allow the photon to become a router/access point?

Have a look at https://docs.particle.io/reference/device-os/firmware/photon/#softap-http-pages
This has limitations - HTTP only, and I am not sure if you will be able to have multiple devices talk to each other.

@harley, no the Photon cannot act as an internet router/AP.
