How to Make a Wifi Hotspot With an Arduino With a VPN

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a type of network that encrypts all your Internet traffic and allows you to access secure websites, chat rooms, and email, even when you’re not in a secure location.

Since most of the Internet traffic is routed through Canada, which has very strict privacy laws, setting up a VPN through Canada is pretty easy.

You’ll need a static IP (Internet Protocol) address, a strong password, and a router or computer that is running a VPN client software.

Let’s setup a VPN through a Tor router using strongVPN’s OpenVPN protocol, which uses the AES (Richerar) symmetric encryption algorithm to secure all the data transferred between your computer and the VPN server.

Important

Make sure that your computer or router is configured to send all traffic through the Tor network. Otherwise, your Internet traffic may be intercepted and logged by your ISP (Internet Service Provider).

Step 1: Purchase Raspberry Pi, Connecting Wifi Dongle, And An Arduino

The first thing you’ll need to do is purchase a Raspberry Pi 3 (or 2), a Wifi dongle, and an Arduino. You can get a bundle containing all three for a low price.

Make sure to purchase the older models, as newer ones come with built-in WiFi support, which makes connecting to WiFi hotspots much easier.

Step 2: Set Up The Raspberry Pi

Once you have all three items in hand, plug them into a powered USB hub. Then, connect the hub to a screen and keyboard. Configure these devices to work with each other and access the Internet via a wired connection (Ethernet cable).

To prepare the Raspberry Pi for use, visit www.raspberrypi.org and download RaspiConfig, a tool that will help you configure the Raspberry Pi to work with your keyboard and screen. Or, if you’re using a Mac, click here to download and start using the Pi Configuration tool.

Once you’ve loaded the tool, navigate to Interfaces and check the box next to the Ethernet port.

This will enable you to connect to the Internet via Ethernet cable. Leave the rest of the options as they are, and click Save. Congratulations! You’ve successfully configured the Raspberry Pi to use Ethernet.

Step 3: Configure Your VPN Subscription

To connect to a VPN, you’ll need to sign up for a strongVPN account. You can create a strongVPN account in less than a minute, and after that you’ll be able to connect to the VPN server (hidden server) of your choice, which is encrypted using the SHA-256 (Secure Hash Algorithm) hash algorithm.

Choose a strongVPN provider, create an account, and then click Connect. Congratulations! You’re now connected to the VPN server.

Step 4: Download And Install StrongVPN’s OpenVPN Client

To set up OpenVPN on your computer/Mac/Linux device, visit www.strongvpn.com and download strongvpn.openvpnclient.ccsetup. This will download and install the OpenVPN client, which is a small piece of software that will allow you to connect to your VPN server.

Step 5: Configure The Arduino To Work With The Raspberry Pi

The next step is to configure the Arduino to work with the Raspberry Pi. In the hardware section, select Ethernet as your device and click Configure. Next, enter the IP address of the Raspberry Pi and click Save. You’re done! The connection should now be active.

Step 6: Install The VLC Media Player To Access Netflix

To access Netflix in Canada, you need to install the VLC media player. Download the.deb package for Linux or Mac users, or visit www.videolan.org and download the.deb package for Windows users. Then, install the package and open VLC. You should now be able to navigate to Netflix and sign in with your credentials.

Step 7: Test Connection To Make Sure Everything’s Working Properly

Now that you have everything set up, it’s time to test the connection. On your computer, open a terminal (command prompt) and type:

“`python
import vnlayer
IP = ‘Your Static IP address‘ # e.g. 192.168.0.101
PASSWORD = ‘Your VPN Password‘ # e.g. raspberry
vnlayer.connect(IP,PASSWORD)
“`

This should return a message similar to:

“`python
192.168.0.101
“`

If it does not, then something is wrong and you’ll need to fix it. For instance, your IP address may be wrong, or there may be a firewall blocking the connection. Consult the instructions that came with your DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) reservation to find out how to adjust your IP address, and then try again.

Once you’ve confirmed that everything is working properly, it’s time to stop the script. Type:

“`python
exit()
“`

Step 8: Connect To A WiFi Hotspot

To connect to a WiFi hotspot, visit www.theprinterdepot.com and download the Wireless Hotspot app for iOS or Android. Then, connect to a WiFi network using the Wirelles hotspot and follow the instructions to complete the setup.

Congratulations! You now have a fully functioning WiFi hotspot, which you can use to connect to the Internet via WiFi. You can even set it up so that whenever a device is connected to the hotspot, the DNS (Domain Name System) queries are forwarded to your device. This way, whenever a device connected to the hotspot tries to visit a web site (e.g. www.theprinterdepot.com) it will be redirected to your device, where you can see the web page and enter data.
