I'm using my Raspberry Pi as an access point and I was wondering : how does it work ?
What is the protocol for an access point to be visible from other devices ? How much data they have to transmit so we can detect them ?
The question behind all this is : does an access point consume a lot if no device is connected to it ?
I cannot find a lot of information on the internet, I surely don't have the keyword for my question, so if you know some article that discusses about it, please share them !
