It’s so easy to connect Raspbian Lite to WiFi

raspbian-lite-connect-wifi

This month, I’ve got a chance to try Raspberry Pi device. I’ve got the Pi 2 model B from Jakarta Notebook offline store in Semarang. I am going to make it as a home server (actually workspace server 😀 ). Right now, there’s a router here that is connected to internet. But unfortunately, I don’t have sufficient LAN cable to connect Pi to the router. So, I make use of a Ralink USB WiFi adapter for Pi to connect. And actually, set it up via command line is not hard as I thought.

How to flash OpenWRT router

Have a look at this screenshot. It’s my experience when installed OpenWRT system image via command line. I did that way because it’s almost broken and I thought it bricked. But fortunately, it could be connected via SSH, and I reflashed the image with mtd command, after I scp-ed the binary image.
