6 Raspberry Pi 5 Projects For Your Home Office

The room that is most convenient for you to use as a home office isn’t necessarily the one with the best access to your WiFi network. We don’t always have a lot of options when it comes to choosing a location to set up our modem and router, and sometimes thick walls, electronics, plumbing, or just sheer space can interfere with the signal. You need a reliable internet connection if you want to work from home though, and a good Wifi extender can make all the difference.

PiMyLifeUp has instructions for how you can make one of these using a Raspberry Pi, a microSD card, a power supply, and two Wi-Fi adapter dongles. You will need to use the Dnsmasq package which, “provides network infrastructure for small networks: DNS, DHCP, router advertisement and network boot.” This will act as the server for connection to the WiFi source point and to your other devices.

The instructions on the PiMyLifeUp page list a 25-step setup process. That might sound intimidating, but each step is thoroughly documented and most of them simply involve copying and pasting lines of pre-written code. Just follow the steps meticulously and you should be able to broaden the range of your WiFi.
