A few friends and I are hoping to set up a little Raspberry Pi get together so that we can share what we've learned and perhaps start a bit of a collaborative project.
So that we can meet up anywhere (pub, coffee shop, park etc.) we're planning to bring along a laptop and Pi each and I intend to provide a wireless network so that all these devices can be connected to via SSH.
As always, I'm hoping to do this without the need to purchace any extra stuff.
My questions then, are:
1. Can I use my spare Pi (with suitable WiFi dongle etc.) as a router that multiple devices can connect to?
2. Can a laptop connected to this 'router' use SSH to access a second Pi also connected to the 'router'?
3. If so, will this setup work when there's no other access to the internet?
The answer to 1. seems to be Yes. I've found plenty of tutorials on setting up a WiFi router using the Pi, which is a good start, but can anyone help me with 2. and 3.?
I look forward to any suggestions.
