Setup PC as a soft access point

In some cases you may wish to use your laptop or pc as an access point instead of using a wireless router. This is beneficial in reducing the amount of hardware needed for live motion capture recording. 

When using a soft access point, to get the most stable connection, avoid having your Pc connected to any other wireless network during your recording session. 

Steps to setup a Soft AP

-First Power on your Body Pack and connect it to the PC running MVN via Micro USB cable.
