Partner organization:

Use hostap mode to turn a laptop into a full featured access point.
(not just ad-hoc). Find out which hardware is suitable. I have an USB-
Wlan-dongle with rt73 chipset, whichis reported to support AP-mode.

See is a perl script wrapper featuring - gain control over
the machines networks - check for a logitech webcam, (nonfatal if none)
- select a suitable wlan adapter (currently rt73usb only) - find an
unused wlan channel, or the one with the weakest signal - start hostapd
to create a master mode (infrasstructure) network - start dnsmasq to
serve dhcp clients, and resolve all dns queries to point locally. - use
nat to redirect 80, 88, 8000, 8080, 8888 to the port of the webcam
server - start mjpeg_streamer with the logitech webcam. voila.
