hey guys

my neighbour wants to use his incoming wifi connection and output via ethernet to a router to connect multiple devices around his home (he is piggy backing my wifi using a dury rigged aerial, next room doesn't get a signal)

I suggested a raspberry pi could managed this using little power

I found: http://www.glennklockwood.com/sa/rpi-wifi-bridge.php but cannot get it to work (nor understand most of it) and wifi card not seen after changes, I wondered if something similar could be achieved using a puppy image (ie raspi-sd-4gb-sap6-5.105.img)

if anybody has any ideas please let me know

thanks

thanks starhawk but need it cheap (!)

I've just been googling about and bridge-utils looks like it might resolve some issues, going to have a play tomorrow on the raspbian build

it seems easy enough eth0 to wlan0, just need it the other way around

I'm close to converting this guy to puppy as he runs mostly p4 gear with xp and it's horrendously slow, puppy on a dell sx260 was impressively snappy

if we can get the pi to work then it can sit up all day cheaply

Well, guess I can't help then. I have some issues with how the RasPi people do their thing ($35 computer that requires a $100+ HDMI monitor? Not nearly as useful as one would think...) so I won't buy one any time soon...

Actually, come to think of it, those dinky TPLink routers that show up on Hackaday every so often -- those go for like us$20-30 on eBay. Not sure how much they are in the UK tho (I do seem to recall you're on that side of The Pond...). However, they most certainly DO accept DD-WRT Wink you know, unless you want to tack on a display driver and LCD, and run SCUMM-VM (someone has actually done this!) or some crazy crap like that.

I don't have a hdmi monitor yet, I use 2 solutions, a hdmi to vga adapter that cost ~$5 and a dvi(&vga) monitor which uses a hdmi to dvi cable which I think was ~$8

I've just invested in a couple of 1Tb drives picked up cheap(ish) from ebay that are currently in my tower, they are being transported to a usb dual dock that will be served using a pi for dlna and puppy storage, initial setup needs a monitor then I just vnc in

You'll burn out the Pi's onboard voltage regulator with that HDMI adapter, unless it has an external power connection.

Here's how to do the modification so that it has that external power (if it didn't originally have it). This requires soldering...

What about a cheap wireless to ethernet bridge plugged into a switch.

You can pickup one like this on ebay for around $20 delivered to your door

I had a look around about the device, there is a python script that can be used to set it up. https://github.com/philsmd/vap11g

I now have an HDMI monitor, but prior to that I used one of the HDMI inputs on our 32-inch flat-screen Sony TV to connect/serve the RasPi->[with wireless keyboard+mouse].
Our Virgin set-top HD cable TV box connects via HDMI.
Haven't yet tried the RasPi on the new HDMI monitor.
