I have been trying to set up my Pi 2 as a portable media centre so it can stream to VLC on my iPhone on the go. I have been following this tutorial: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=36579 , however, I haven't had much luck. I followed the tutorial exactly and it didn't work. The pi didn't show up as an access point on my phone.

I don't know if my usb wifi adapter may be the problem, as it is rtl8188cus or something like that. I have looked up various methods of fixing this online, but I don't think any of them were applicable to my problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • The links aren't working, and are generally unreliable to begin with - can you edit into the post exactly what you have tried & done already, how far along you got & what exactly is not working? – user2813274 Jul 30 '18 at 1:36
  • @user2813274 I have edited the link in, hopefully it should work better now. I haven't deviated from that tutorial that much, I just copied it exactly. – Ethan Gascoigne Aug 1 '18 at 13:43
  • That tutorial is ~5 years old, I expect to see issues as versions/updates change/break stuff - anyways, how far did you get? did you complete all the steps successfully? did any of the steps give you errors? – user2813274 Aug 1 '18 at 13:46
  • @user2813274 I didn't get any errors, I completed it and the pi just didn't show up as an AP on any device. – Ethan Gascoigne Aug 1 '18 at 13:48
