Okay, I am very much a NEWBIE when it comes to these type of connections. So, I searched on this website on how to be able to do this and I came across two promising questions and answers. However, they don't seem to be helping. First, I tried the following question's answer. Ad-hoc setup for pi 3 All I see is a tooltip saying the following for both PI 3 but with different ip address. With this setup, I can't make PIs talk to each other. I don't even know if they see each other even though they are supposed to be on the same network SSID (thayanet). I can't even PING from each other.
Then, I tried the second question I found - Connect to Raspberry PI 3 over Wi-Fi direct This question also didn't help me. Once I made the changes wpa_supplicant.conf file, it spit out all sorts of errors such as unsupported drivers, failed to add interface wlan0, etc...
I simply want to setup a Ad-Hoc connection for my two PIs. So, they can communicate with each other. Any help is appreciated.
UPDATE Once I set up ad-hoc on one PI, the other PI sees that network. Now, how do I use this network setup. I try to connect the non-ad-hoc PI to ad-hoc PI and it won't connect.
