Make a alternative Raspbian WiFi hotspot

Tue Feb 13, 2018 11:50 pm

Idea
Instead of time and time again trying to sort out why someones Pi will not connect to their router - why don't we come up with an alternative Raspbian image that starts the Pi off as a hotspot, lets people VNC in so they can use the GUI desktop to connect to their local LAN WiFi and then reboot into normal mode

Probably even already exists somewhere

If it doesn't work as a hotspot then we'd know that they either didn't get a proper copy of the image or their Pi is actually faulty - at least we'd be down to 2 possibilities :)

Then if it doesn't then connect to their router/AP via the GUI icon - then its a fault with their router or a compatibility issue

Worth doing?
