Setting up wifi Access Point on TX2

Following these instructions for hostapd, I was able to get a TX2 access point working.

However, with original wifi antenna, the signal strength is pretty low, the signal can only cover 3-5 meters.

Has anyone got the same issue?

Did you try indoors or outdoors with direct line of sight?

You may want to try using a signal booster or high-gain antenna to gain longer range in your environment.

Thanks for your replying

I tried indoors with the direct line of sight; there’s no block between TX2 and target devices.I just want to make sure I configure TX2 correct.
What’s the average coverage of TX2 with the original antenna?


I have been trying to setup WiFi access point on my TX2. I have tried everything in this post:

I have also tried everything suggested in other threads but it is still not working!
I have tried with the latest version of JetPack and an older one.

What usually happens is that, when I try to connect to my AP, I get incorrect password despite me typing the right one.

Any help would be appreciated… Thanks!

So I have been trying to set up a hotspot on my TX2, and I am having problems setting it up. So I followed every step in;

but for reasons, I lose access to all internet connection; both the ethernet and the wifi no longer work, and none of my wifi shows up. is there something I missed

Hi mohammedshittu1,

Please open a new topic for your issue. Be sure to update with JetPack version you used. Thanks
