Raspberry Pi and routing: turn your pi into a wireless router #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

Jacob Salmela posted a tutorial on how to turn your pi into a router- very useful!

The Raspberry Pi can be used as a router–great if you need a pocket-sized device to share an Internet connection. It can also be used in conjunction with a cantenna.

Requirements For This Walkthrough

Materials

  1. Local network
  2. Mac or PC
  3. Raspberry Pi running Raspbian “wheezy”
  4. Wireless USB Adapter
  5. HDMI Cable (*optional)
  6. Keyboard (*optional)
  7. Mouse (*optional)
  8. Monitor with HDMI input (*optional)

*If the Raspberry Pi is set up as a headless machine, you will not need a monitor, keyboard, or mouse–just another computer, which would be used to access it remotely over the network via SSH.

Downloads

  1. Older hostapd (only needed if the driver via apt does not work)

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities

  1. Ability to navigate throughout a computer OS
  2. Knowledge of basic computer terminology
  3. Ability and confidence to enter commands in the Terminal, adjusting them to suit your environment, if necessary
  4. Familiarity with core networking concepts

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
