rpi-ap

RPi config for using rpi as an access point which uses capture portal techniques to give mobiles a web ui to physical computing projects. As setup it does not give internet access

Install the software

sudo aptitude install iw hostapd dnsmasq python-serial
  • copy the files from the /file into the same position on the Pi (FIXME)

  • Use wpa_cli to add the networks you want (use 'save config' to store it)

  • In /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf set ssid=EduMakeRPi to whatever you want to call your network

  • Set the SSIDs you would like it to try to connect to first in /etc/rc.local

  • It will scan for the network names in ssids= () and attach to one those if it can

  • If not it will setup an Access Point using 10.5.5.1 for the RPi and 10.5.5.100 -150 for the dhcp range

  • To set up a way physically force own AP (so you can force that behaviour even when at home base):-

  • Wire GPIO 14 and 15 together

  • use raspi-config -> Serial to Disable shell and kernel messages on the serial connection.

  • the code will check if the GPIO 14 and 15 are linked together (with a jumper / wire) and skip the searching if they are
