Hi all,

I have a nRF24L01 and was wondering if there are any software libraries that can allow it to connect to my internet?

Assuming that by "internet" you mean Wi-Fi, then no, not even close.

You need ESP8266 or similar Wi-Fi IC/module.

Hi,

You can not connect directly to your wireless internet. nRF24L01 IC is not WIFI module. nRF24L01 IC (module) is 2.4GHz RF module with own communication protocol. You can read the datasheet for more details. You can use arduino with ethernet or wifi shield to make internet gateway to nRF24L01 radio network. You can check out https://github.com/maniacbug/RF24 library. They have Arduino and Raspberry Pi library.
