Simple AP setup & WiFi management for Debian-based devices


RaspAP is feature-rich wireless router software that just works on many popular Debian-based devices, including the Raspberry Pi. Our popular Quick installer creates a known-good default configuration in minutes on all current Raspberry Pis with onboard wireless.

Quick start

Start with a clean install of the latest release of Raspberry Pi OS (32-bit) Lite. The Raspberry Pi OS desktop and 64-bit beta distros are unsupported.

ℹ Note: Be sure to use an official power supply with your device. Power supply requirements differ by Raspberry Pi model. Inadequate voltage is the source of many WiFi issues.

Update RPi OS to its latest version, including the kernel and firmware, followed by a reboot:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get full-upgrade
sudo reboot

Set the WiFi country in raspi-config's Localisation Options: sudo raspi-config.

ℹ Important: Failure to perform this step will prevent the RPi from enabling wireless operation. When this happens, you will see the warning Wi-Fi is currently blocked by rfkill in the console.

Install RaspAP from your device's shell prompt:

curl -sL | bash

The Quick installer will complete the steps in the manual installation for you.

After the reboot at the end of the installation the wireless AP network will be configured as follows:

IP address:
Username: admin
Password: secret
DHCP range: to
SSID: raspi-webgui
Password: ChangeMe

Your AP's basic settings and many advanced options are now ready to be modified by RaspAP.
