OpenWRT and Raspberry PI Access Point

Today I decided to build one personal access point for my travels.

I had one Raspberry PI 2 in my drawers and I decided to use it.

I wanted to prepare something fancy based on web environment and not in bash.

Trying to see what exists compatible with raspberry pi I have found OpenWRT…

I tried to install it and everything work well until I tried to put the wireless cards working. 🙁

The wi-fi did not start-up, I could not make it work…
Until I found I had to install some packages…

I have installed the hostapd package
I have installed the hostapd-common
I have installed the hostapd-utils

This is required to transform the device into an access point.

To install this packages I used the web interface.
Menu System -> Software

Finally I discovered that the network drivers did not exist, I have installed the drivers for the wireless network cards…

opkg install kmod-rt2800-lib kmod-rt2800-usb kmod-rt2x00-lib kmod-rt2x00-usb

The suddenly I have a new menu and I can see wi-fi networks… 🙁

But I am not still able to connect or able to advertise my SSID… 🙁

I Hope to be able to complete this post very soon with all the required steps.

Kali Linux, Raspberry PI and 64GB SD card not fully used…

I have installed the Kali Linux image for the fist time in a RaspberryPi to play a bit and understand what we can do with it…

I used a 64GB SD card but the image does not use all the available space on the SD card.
The official installation has a config that allow us to expand the disk so I guess we can use that to do the same in Kali.

How can I install the rasps-config tool?
What do I need to make it work correctly?

I have found this walk through to expand the disk, I hope it is useful to others.
