When over a year ago I was working on setting up wireless access point, that was really tough task. I would never thought that one day I would be able to do the same just with my TV remote and on… OpenELEC!
Ok, so here is the World’s easiest way to set up your own AP.
You must have wifi USB adapter with the right chipset. Which chipset is the right one? I can’t give you exact list as I do not know it, but definitely USB WiFi adapter with RT5370 chip worked for me. You can buy one at Lightberry.eu/shop (feel free to visit Lightberry.eu as well :) ).
You may need powered USB HUB – that depends on the wifi device and the power supply you have for the Raspberry pi.
Once you got the hardware
Install OpenELEC (I won’t describe how to do this, as I won’t be able to do it as well as openelec guys on their website).
In Kodi (yes, in Kodi :) ) go to
SYSTEM -> OpenELEC -> Network
First turn on
Wireless Networks -> Active
Then turn on
Enable 'tethered' Wireless Access Point
Enter your Access Point name (
OpenELEC-AP is the default)
Change default passphrase for your AP, just to make it more secure.
Believe it or not, you are done!
