If you have a Raspberry Pi with Cellular IoT Application Shield connected to a Cellular Network, you can easily convert it to a Wi-Fi Hotspot. By the end of this tutorial, you will have a WiFi Raspberry Pi Hotspot with you.
Before getting started
First, make a backup of the Wi-Fi connection configuration.
To do this, go to the terminal of the raspberry pi and run the following commands:
sudo cp /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf.sav
sudo cp /dev/null /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
Add following lines in the file
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev update_config=1
After that, all we need to do is install RaspAP.
RasAP is a software that allows us to manage the access point and hotspot on the web interface.
Install RaspAP from your RaspberryPi’s shell prompt:
curl -sL https://install.raspap.com | bash
IP address: 10.3.141.1
DHCP range: 10.3.141.50 to 10.3.141.255
From the Configure hotspot tab, set and save as follows.
