"Create Access Point" option missing on Venus OS on Raspberry Pi

Hi,

I have VenusGX for my offgrid system which works perfectly. I have since started reworking my Caravan to incorporate a Victron setup. I have setup a Raspberry Pi (Tried version 2 and version 3) as a VenusGX substitute. I however do not have the option to "Settings → Wi-Fi → Create access point".

I have seen one other thread on here that had no replies regarding this: https://community.victronenergy.com/questions/48565/access-point-option-missing-venus-os-raspberry-pi.html

Does anyone know why this option isn't available? Or if there is a config setting on the Pi I need to do. The Raspberry Pi 2 has a wifi dongle that does pick up other networks. Pi 3 I used the built in Wifi to connect to other networks.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davin Hansen
