Today I managed to get the wlan part of the raspberry pi based car radio for my friends typ 3 wilson working. I used a R8187U based wlan stick from belkin (Belkin N150 WLAN USB-Adapter) and configured an ad-hoc network. I initially intended to create a wlan access point like described here, but I hostapd didn´t want to cooperate :-/

wilson access point

to start the ad-hoc network at boot I changed /etc/network/interfaces to look like this

auto lo wlan0

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
wireless-mode ad-hoc
wireless-essid WILSON
wireless-channel 1
wireless-enc off
wireless-ap auto

I also installed dnsmasq to use it as a dhcp server. In the file /etc/dnsmasq.conf I changed the device to wlan0 and the dhcp_range looks like this


Now I can connect my IOS devices to the wilson´s WLAN and stream music to the airplay client I´ve installed in part 2
