Setting up the Pi

The first step before beginning with this project is to make sure that you have installed the latest version of Raspbian on your Raspberry Pi's SD card. If you need help copying Raspbian to your SD card, visit our great SD card setup guide.

Next, you will need to connect your Raspberry Pi to power and to your network via ethernet. At this time you can also connect any WiFi USB dongles you may have as well. The Pi Finder can help you set up WiFi during the bootstrap process.

Next we will look at the Adafruit Pi Finder utility and attempt to connect to the Pi.
