The simplest way is to use the dht11 overlay. You just read the data out of a file. It works fine.
Thanks for the reply knute,

Do you have some instructions you could link me to for using the dht11 overlay?

Thank you :)

I suggest the first thing you do is post a picture showing the sensor and the WiFi g to the pi so we can see how you have it wired.
