#12083 I apologize for my ignorance but I am new with the es8266, my first question is: can I use the es8266 to receive and to send data directly to a wifi enabled device without the need of a wifi router or a PC?

#12163 Hi,

ESP8266 supports WiFi AP and WiFi direct so the answer is yes. The easiest is to configure esp8266 as an access point so that any wifi enabled device can connect to it directly. Hope it helps.
