Detailed Description

Expand on the summary, if appropriate. A couple sentences suffices to explain the goal, but the more details you can provide the better.

Benefit to Sugar

What is the benefit to the platform? If this is a major capability update, what has changed? If this is a new feature, what capabilities does it bring? Why will Sugar become a better platform or project because of this feature?


NetworkManager provides all the functionality needed to create Ad Hoc networks. In the sugar shell we only need to change the NetworkManager client to allow the creating of Ad Hoc networks and add the UI.

How To Test

User Experience

Easy way to set up a local wireless network.


No further dependencies, only changes in the sugar shell.

Contingency Plan

Defer to 0.88
