I am designing a car computer that is a simple readout and data logger using an OBD cable. I want to avoid buying a screen, so I am planning to generate a wifi network using an AP dongle I have, and then VNC into the Pi using my iPad. However, when I connect to the wifi network with my iPad, it seems to disconnect after only a few seconds. I am thinking this is because the Pi is not providing any internet for the iPad. Is there a way to get around this?
In short, can I trick my iPad into thinking there is working internet using the raspberry pi?
