All my life, I've been using Adafruit tutorial on How to set PRI as access point, but in the latest release the /etc/network/interfaces file looks diffrent. After following tutorial and reboot, RPI fails to start DHCP on all interfaces. Do you know any up to date tutorial, or can you tell me how to make my RPI work? I know nothing about net, and I can't figure it myself.
