I’m loving my new arrangement (without AP). I have modem and scanning WIFI client running. When I get home, the car connects to home wifi so I can ssh in, scp logs off, OTA new firmware. As I drive away, it loses WIFI and seamlessly switches to modem.

There is something very cool about doing this on a little embedded device:

$ ssh mark at ev914.local
