Hi guys,

Is it possible to setup a wireless network without an internet connection , I have been using my ISPs default router but it is sub par - only getting 72 Mbps on 802.11n over Wifi.Would I get better performance by using a better router with no internet connection. I am transmitting data from the robot to my laptop over WiFi (laptop is connected to the router with Ethernet cable ). I need at least 100 Mbps. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

You can also do ad-hoc WiFi networking between two endpoints without a WiFi router in between, but this is less useful and harder to set up than having a cheap WiFi router like a tiny little TP-Link pocket-sized router:

Yes, a standalone wifi router works just fine between a robot and a laptop. 100 Megs, though? Is that really necessary?
