WiFi server without router access
My goal is to set up a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B with attached external hard drive as a backup server over WiFi. I want to mirror a partition on my laptop onto the external. I am running Fedora 25 on my laptop. I realize backup will be slow, but will be infrequent enough that I am not concerned about transfer speeds.
Here is the hitch: I am using my apartment's WiFi, so therefore do not have access to and cannot configure the router.
I do have an old Linksys router lying around. Basically, I don't want to ever attach my external directly to the laptop. I do not care what is attached to the rpi2.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a solution?
