is ESP-Mesh + softAP possible

Postby Weigen Qiu » Wed Jul 15, 2020 5:03 pm

Hi There,

Is it possible to modify the ip_internal_network sample code, such that not only all ESp32-S2 devices can communicate with each other, but also external devices (such as cellphones) can see ESP32-S2 as softAP (just like Google Mesh)? i.e. use mesh network to turn ESP32-S2 as wifi extender/repeater?

I saw an example of use ESp32-S2 for NAT: https://github.com/jonask1337/esp-idf-nat-example. It does not use MESH unfortunately.

Is it possible to implement that? I understand there is a limit for number of connections for each softAP, but can we just make the softAP visible to external world at least?

thanks in advance.

Hi Weigen,

Thanks for your question.
We will implement the function as you said to let non ESP-Mesh devices access to the ESP-Mesh networks.
Will let you know when this function is merged.
