Please follow these tutorials in order to
Install the OS onto your SD card
If you bought an SD card with Wheezy pre-burned on you can skip this step
Boot the Pi and configure
Don't forget to change the default password for the 'pi' acccount!!!
Set up and test the Ethernet and Wifi connection
Check that you can ping from the Raspberry Pi and that your Wifi adapter is recognized and shows up as wlan0 when you run ifconfig -a
Connect with a USB console cable (optional)
Handy for debugging especially when connecting to the access point hosted by the Pi
- Then follow our Pi-as-Access-Point tutorial to set up the Pi as a wifi access point router.
If using a console cable, even though the diagram on the last step shows powering the Pi via the USB console cable (red wire) we suggest not connecting the red wire and instead powering from the wall adapter. Keep the black, white and green cables connected as is.
