Well, after a lot of trial and errors, I think this may work.
How well or reliably is yet to be determined. I can wirelessly connect to a Atik infinity camera by using a raspberry pi 3 setup as an access point. (ad-hoc mode is no longer supported on windows 10)
Attached is a pdf file of the procedure I used. Use/test at your own risk, any specific problems best research on your own as I am not a Linux guru. General questions I may be able to answer.
also- be sure to download the latest software from Atik website as there have been a few updates in the last week.
