I reQUEST assistance on the following issue:
Hi all. I have a similar challenge to the recent request about connectivity issues, except I want to STAY in ad hoc mode ! We want to take the bots out of the lab and onto the streets, ala Spider Dog (check out the YouTube video), so we want to control the bots without routers i.e. ad hoc.
We have 2 laptops that connect ad hoc and 3 desktops that will not. Yeah, so laptops; what's the problem? Well, we'd like to know what causes the issue so we know we could use any laptop to control the bots.
If the bot's wifi circuitry is not responding to all ad hoc requests (as DJ questions) and it's he wifi dongle, what's a make/model that people know work that we might use as the main connection point for any desktop? Is there a possibility other circuitry, perhaps a replacement to the wifi circuitry currently being used, might resolve this random issue?
We taking 'em to the streets! Any help figuring this one out will be appreciated.
