Ad Hoc Network using the chipKIT Wi-FIRE



I'm working with the chipKIT Wi-FIRE board (Rev C) along with the newest version of the arduino IDE and the Digilent Core.

I was wondering if it was possible to set up an ad hoc network hosted on the Wi-FIRE board that can be connected to from other devices,

I've looked through various parts of the different WiFi related libraries in the core and have found several references to ad hoc but nothing about how I might set it up or what needs to happen to broadcast an SSID for other devices to see.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you for taking the time to look into it.

Just as some Auxiliary info, I looked through the DEWFcK library and did not find anything that seemed as though it could be used for setting up an Ad Hoc network hosted on the WiFire.

I also looked through a library included in the core under the "MRF24G" folder. Though I found functions that appeared as though they could be used to configure the MRF24WG0MA for Ad Hoc, I wasn't able to figure out what should be called when, to correctly initialize the module and publicly broadcast the SSID.

The MRF24WG0MA datasheet didn't seem to mention this either.
