Two ways to defined the IP address of the raspberry:

  1. by consulting the list of IP addresses connected to your router (or Internet box)
  2. by the sniffing of your Ethernet network with a specific software (exemple Advanced IP Scanner])

password : raspberry

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

Run the command to configure the Raspberry Pi

If you want that the beacons of your repeater are broadcasting in local time, do not forget to setup the Time Zone with the utility raspi-config : Menu Internationalisations Options, and Change Timezone

Next after the setting of the time zone of Paris, you will see this confirmation message:
