You can make your own Wireless Access Point with Raspberry Pi using Tenda Wireless USB Adapter (W311U+).    It won’t give you the same performance like the commercial one… but it will allow you to connect at least 5 devices and install network security packages to play with 🙂  neat!

Bought from Octagon Megamall with PhP600 price tag.  You can also try other Wireless USB adapters like CDR-King’s… but check if it can operate on “Software AP” mode.

My @WiTribePH experience

Update 20120528: A wiTribe technical support called while I’m at work last friday afternoon. Asking kung pwede kaming mag troubleshoot. and syempre ang sagot ko hindi pwede dahil nasa office pako and nasa bahay ang witribe. So she asked me when is the best time to call daw. Ang sabi ko bukas ng hapon mga 4pm.

….. after 2days.

WALA PARIN TUMATAWAG.

Update 20120530: Ms Jamie called and asking again for my availability. ([email protected]!! SO SO SO SO LATE!! I’m applying for SmartBro already.) I told her na ipapa disconnect ko na lang. But she told me na dapat ko daw dalhin sa nearest WiTribe shop nila. F.U. @WiTribePH!!! hangang sa huli abala ka!

Update 20120530: @WitribePH is trying to convince me na gagawan nila ng paraan. Tingnan natin!
