Hello Sayed,

Mininet emulates hosts, switches and the links between them and nothing
more and nothing less.  If you want to create a Wifi network that has
openflow then you need to start looking at wifi AP that support OF. I have
played around with DD-WRT which supports OF, and you could use that.  What
I would do is the following.  Setup a mininet system and instead of using
Hosts bind the OVSK switches to physical ethernet ports. On each port hook
up an AP that is OF enabled and then you should be able to build your

Hope this helps.
