I'm wondering if it is possible to setup a Raspberry Pi (a basic Linux box) with a USB Wifi Dongle to both connect to a Wifi network as well as be a Wifi Access Point?
What I'd like to do is:
- Have the Raspberry Pi broadcast its own Wifi network
- Connect to the network with my laptop and obtain the Raspberry Pi's IP address
- SSH into the Raspberry Pi and have it connect to a Wifi network
- Raspberry Pi remains broadcasting its own Wifi network
The reason for doing this is because the Raspberry Pi is going to be physically locked up in a way that I cannot access it. I want to be able to SSH into the Raspberry at any time to update files on its system. If anyone has a better idea as to how to access the Raspberry Pi remotely without physically connecting to it, I'm open to ideas!
I haven't looked into VPN – but doing some research into it.
