Enabling Simultaneous AP and Managed Mode WiFi on Raspberry Pi Zero W

Personal note: Running both an access point and a client configuration on the same network adapter (i.e., simultaneous Client/AP mode) requires support for so-called virtual interfaces. Whether a certain Wifi hardware and driver combo supports virtual interfaces and in which configurations can be found out by looking at iw list output (look for AP and … Continue reading Enabling Simultaneous AP and Managed Mode WiFi on Raspberry Pi Zero W

Set up WiFi through the command line terminal on Raspberry Pi

This method is suitable if you don't have access to the graphical user interface normally used to set up WiFi on the Raspberry Pi. It is particularly suitable for use with a serial console cable if you don't have access to a screen or wired Ethernet network. Note also that no additional software is required; … Continue reading Set up WiFi through the command line terminal on Raspberry Pi

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on Raspberry Pi

https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/networking-lessons/lesson-3/plan/ In this lesson, students will learn how the Raspberry Pi can be used to demonstrate Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol on an isolated network. By now it will be clear that repeatedly changing the /etc/network/interfaces file is time-consuming and laborious. There are a number of disadvantages to giving static IP addresses to all computers on … Continue reading Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on Raspberry Pi

If you don’t want to check or remember the IP address of Raspberry Pi on LAN

The flexible way: Set up avahi / zeroconf. Zeroconf is 'a set of techniques that automatically creates a usable Internet Protocol (IP) network without manual operator intervention or special configuration servers.'[3]. Avahi is an implementation of zeroconf which 'ships with most Linux and *BSD distributions' [4], but not the Raspberry Pi's Debian distribution. Zeroconf will … Continue reading If you don’t want to check or remember the IP address of Raspberry Pi on LAN
