Using OVMS as 3G Wifi Hub


I have recently installed OVMS and am wondering if it is possible to use the OVMS module as a 3G wifi hub and then allowing non 3g devices to connect for internet access.

With the modem connected it would make sense rather than having to subscribe to anothe 3g connection?

Sorry, but no wifi hotspot

Sorry, but no wifi hotspot functionality in OVMS. It is unlikely to come any time soon as (a) the link between the modem and ovms is 115200 baud, (b) there are no flow control pins for higher speeds, and (c) the freertos environment we use doesn't have this capability.

You can use an external wifi hotspot and connect OVMS to that (rather than using the optional modem board).
