We recommend purchasing this router pre-programmed to provide the rpi wireless network, but it must still be connected to your local school WiFi.
This router allows you to connect to any type of wireless network and re-broadcast it as a local private WiFi network – also one LAN port can be connected to a local networking device such as a Raspberry Shake.
This allows the RPi computers to talk to each other over the LAN and do other local area networking tasks.
