DSMI requirements
« on: October 24, 2008, 07:39:44 »

I was wondering if i could get some answers concerning the DSMI interface.  I've used it before on Windows, more as a novelty than anything, for a while, but was wondering if it could be used through a wireless card instead of a router on Windows or Linux.  I ask because I'm going to be getting a laptop soon, and might not be able to get a signal from my wireless router in my bedroom.

Hi! Yes it can be, but the wireless card must have the ability to emulate an access point. On linux this is done with hostapd, so you should get a supported card. If the laptop's builtin card isn't supported, PCMCIA cards with supported chipsets like priosm54 are very cheap.
