wireless laptop-Pi network

Thu Aug 22, 2019 8:20 am

How do I setup a wifi network that does not require a router or modem? I'd like to have my laptop communicate with the Pi over SSH withput the need for the Pi to be connected to a router with a LAN cable, or any router at all.
Can I use the Pi wifi independently of any other network?

Sure. Either the Pi or the laptop needs to be setup and running as a wireless access point (similar to who you can do this with most modern cellphones). The other device will connect to this wireless network. Lots of tutorials and how to's available, such as:
