This is mostly a matter of getting a WiFi chip that supports acting as access 
point which is something not all of them support AFAIK. 

I suppose one could do it with adhoc networking, too. It would work somewhat 
differently than most are used to, but given you somehow get the Neo to speak 
WiFi it looks rather easy, actually.
