Connecting Raspberry Pi to a Wireless LAN

Second part in my series of posts about my current Raspberry Pi Project

Now that you are connected to your Pi using USB Hot-spot, you can do all sorts of things without relying on setting up a dedicated desk including monitor and other accessories.

But using your phone to access Pi and work on it is still not that interactive. Typing in your phone is not a preferable task when it comes to programming.

Let’s setup your Pi to your Wireless LAN so that you can easily do ssh from your already owned Laptop/PC, so that your experience will be hassle-free.

For that you have to connect to your Pi using USB Hot-spot for one last time. Bear it with me —

  1. You need to install wpa_supplicant software.
    sudo apt install wpasupplicant

Next up, we will install a SMTP server in Pi.
Stay tuned!
