Hope you like my play on words in the title Wi-Fi Pi! I’m doing a tutorial on getting your raspberry pi to run off a Wi-Fi USB key. This way you no longer have to use an Ethernet connection or have that cord running across your living room floor like mine was doing for months. I also wanted a way to connect to the RasPi when I *cough* finish my robot project. Yes I will very soon. So lets get started by covering the require parts and tutorials you might need to follow to get everything working.
Previous Tutorials Recommended:
- Raspberry Pi (any version)
- Wi-Fi USB (EdiMax EW-7811Un)
sudo apt-get install wpasupplicant
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
The important parts are as follows, be sure to save on exit (press ctrl+O (save) then ctrl+X (exit)):
iface wlan0 inet manual
sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
sudo shutdown -r now

I've had to change usb wifi and of course it was a different chip set. Was able to get the individual distro's [wheezy, occidentals, etc] working , but have not been able to figure out how to get the proper driver to berryboot and configure it
appreciate your thoughts.
Wow, cool.. I will try this.....
Good. I will make with cmd ELM327
