Hi,
I have a system with 1 smartphone and 2 ESP8266 devices (see figure attached).
I do not have router. Is It possible to implement a wifi network between these 3 devices?
May be a Direct WiFi (or what else)? Each device has to talk with the other 2 devices. Is It possible without a router? If Yes what libs and configuration I have to use?

Thanks for Help
Carlo

The smartphone could be a router with HotSpot

Also, many smart phones have Wi-Fi hotspot or tethering capability. Your phone can act as the hotspot/router.

You'll find this setting, if it exists, in the Android Settings dialog.

Some carriers disable this function because they do not want their cellular data connection used by other devices.
