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.
