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.

  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.
