Raspberry PI control


Just fried up a new raspberry PI. Is it possible to gain external access to the PI through BT or wifi even though I have not signed into the internet or used BT?

Fried up like let the smoke out? Shouldn't it be presumed dead now? Who is BT, anybody we know? A great Pi hacker perhaps?

You could prepare an SD card that connects automatically to your network and then you could SSH into it, assuming it is still able to boot.

BT I assume is bluetooth.

Depends on the hardware. What model Pi did you get? A Pi 3 has built in WiFi but the others need a USB adapter. If USB post the make/model or the output of lsusb.

If you have a router you can connect the Pi to your LAN then use ssh to gain access. If not you can create an adhoc network or access point on the Pi and then connect any WiFi device to your Pi. Access is still via ssh.

bluetooth is possible but Wifi is easier.
