Wireless Access Router Project (WARP)

The WARP project began from the need of a convenient way to share files and resources during meetings. Completed this month, March 2014, it provides a common landing page through a captive portal. The landing page provides current information pertaining to the meeting along with an interface to upload and download files. Internet connectivity is also provided with the landing page offering links to the SMLUG site along with other interesting Linux sites. Most every member has contributed in some way but thanks to the persistence of Michael Rainey and Jan Goff all features included in the initial phase are functioning as planed. Michael has also made available the image below for download. The basic hardware and software consist of:

  • Raspberry Pi
  • Raspbain Operating System
  • Edimax wireless interface
  • hostapd
  • BIND
  • iptables

Documentation will be made available when complete and will be posted here also for download.
