Jetson/TX1 WiFi Access Point
Jetson TX1's WiFi controller can be run in Access Point (AP) hot-spot mode, enabling TX1 to host it's own WiFi network.
Setting Broadcom op_mode
To enable SSID broadcast, the driver’s op_mode parameter has to be set to 2.
This can be set in two ways:
- Manually via /sys/module/bcmdhd/paramters/op_mode node:
$ echo 2 > /sys/module/bcmdhd/parameters/op_mode
- Add the following line to
options bcmdhd op_mode=2
See the following guide to using hostapd service for running the Access Point:
