I own 5 usb wifi dongles plus the inbuilt pcie. Each card has different sensitivities and I use extension aerial cables to receive scan data from different sides of my building. Scanning with several wifi cards lets me compare the strengths and weaknesses of he cards. Also two interfaces for joining network and creating hotspot. Also just because I wanted to program it.

Eventually i want to develope auto switching between several cards.

I have a number of wifi dongles, as well. Never thought to use them in that way. I've been wanting to try the hotspot idea for a while.... Any tips?

Wifi-HotSpot uses create_ap backend. 'create_ap' gets compiled on first use but the devx must be loaded. Or you can simply cd to /usr/sbin/create_ap-master then open terminal there and
Code:
make install

check installation and get useful info

Code:
create_ap


Wifi-HotSpot gui has information button
