Use MESH to share a PPPoS connection

Postby drbomb » Sat Jul 28, 2018 1:20 am

Hello guys,

We are a company that is developing some ESP32 based control and transmission boards using a 3G/4G network.

We'd like to cut costs by placing a single modem on a ESP32 and let the rest of the ESP32 clients without a modem receive that internet connection.

We've tried extensively to do this on a normal ESP-IDF build but we're not as proficient modifying the lwIP stack.

So my question is, is it possible to use ESPMESH. Or perhaps modifying the ESP-IDF network stack to make this "Wifi" router application a reality?

As far as I've read, ESPMESH requires a "parent" wifi router, so that's why I'm not sure this will work on the current version.

Thanks for your time,

Some informations about ESP-MESH for you:
  • It's simpler to forward data using ESP-MESH.
  • Lwip has not been matched on ESP-MESH yet.
  • We are processing on no-router ESP-MESH network.
The last point could solve the problems "parent need" of you. And the second point may cause some other difficulties in your application.
