WLAN Pi & Python Scripting

What tools come to mind when you’re doing remote troubleshooting? Have you ever used a WLAN Pi? In this episode, François and I did a live stream on the CTS YouTube channel, highlighting the capabilities of the WLAN Pi.

Some tools are just out of reach in terms of cost. The WLAN Pi is affordable and packs a lot of tools.

The reason for the live stream was to show how I was able to use the WLAN Pi, which was hosted at François’ house, to get a remote view of the Wi-Fi networks around him.

Even better, I was able to load the information in WiFi Explorer as a remote sensor, giving us that visual look of the environment.

Near the end of our live stream, François shares his Python scripts used with Mist to configure an access point for APoS operations. It’s worth checking out the live stream if you want to see it in action.
