Re: Squid Proxy

Alternatively you could setup a VPN rather than opening up the ports for Squid.

Re: ssh connects fine but browser connection refused

localhost == 127.0.0.1 any test with localhost as a dest is a pointless test. You should test to your pi using whatever ip is assigned to eth0 and the wlan0 addresses. netstat -rn would have been more telling. That's not quite true, it proves the server is running properly. The issue is that the se...

Re: WiFi Issues ? Start here !

using wpa-passphrase and wpa-ssid actually use wpa-supplicant anyway :P

But using the static IP address with multiple wifi networks is where the wpa-supplicant file comes in useful.

Re: Pi as wireless bridge?

That way of doing things is still routing, which will cause issues like what you're experiencing with the TV. The reason why you're experiencing issues is because the packets go from one network to another network. Unless you have port forwarded all the ports required for MiniDLNA from the PI to the...

Re: Pi as wireless bridge?

What does the TV complain about ?
You may need to put the router of the first network (so not the one that your Pi is creating) into /etc/resolv.conf so that the TV can resolve things properly.

Re: WiFi Issues ? Start here !

Personally I use the RT5370 based ones for their OOTB AP capability. Don't need to use a Realtek specific hostapd.
The Edimax ones work well, though I've never used one personally.

Re: Raspberry Pi connect's to more distantly WiFi-AP

just add this line into wpa.conf after ssid

bssid=00:11:22:33:44:55

So end result should look like this

Code: Select all

network={
ssid="SSIDofServeralAccessPoints"
bssid=00:11:22:33:44:55
proto=RSN WPA
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP
group=CCMP
psk="GlobalPasswordOfTheSSIDNetwork"
}

Try plugging it in to the Pi itself and see if it works.
Also, make sure you plug the dongle in, and then plug the power into the Pi.

Re: Raspberry Pi connect's to more distantly WiFi-AP

Knowing what distribution you're using would help, but I'm going to guess you're using Raspbian.

How are you currently configuring your WiFi ?

Motion can use a large chunk of CPU. If all you're wanting is webcam streaming, I'd use ffmpeg over motion as that uses less CPU

There are quite a few alternative Raspbian Distros out there that will fit on a 2GB SD card, some will even fit onto a 1GB SD card with room to spare.
There's also a few installers available to do similar things. hifi's unattended installer being my preferred installer.

By default, it shouldn't have MAC address filtering. Not sure how to check on your router since every router is different. Can any other device connect to the WiFi ?
