Re: RPi Zero W in Station + AP Mode

I really would not mind finding how to do this myself. Do a lot of travelling - if I could use my cellphone - connect to RPi, input local wi-fi hotspot details, and then let the RPi do its thing. That is exchange e-mails - Upload / Download files etc. Then at room at Guest House plug in to TV and se...

Re: RPi as Church Presentation Tool

P2P Data via Cellular GSM

Is there a way a Cellular GSM device can connect, to another device and exchange data in a P2P situation serially? That is like in the old days when you used modems to transmit data over POTS lines. If so, what would I need to add to a RPi besides a USB dongle? Or to phrase it differently - use the ...

Re: dwa-160 driver issue when setting up AP

You need the free firmware package installed to get the DWA 160 D-Link USB wi-fi dongle to work. Could be the cause of your issue.

Re: Where to Install Codec Driver Files

C & H files imply source code that needs to be compiled. But have no idea how they need to be installed - any instructions for installing on Debian should be relevant on Raspbian.

Probably the best place to make further enquiries would be on Analog Devices own support forums.

Re: Firewall security for Raspi

Raspbian, and I suspect that all other Linux distributions that run on the RPi boards, have iptables for firewalling. Numerous frontends exist for easing the setup for iptables.

Re: music

Try a mini headphone jack to RCA connector cable and play your music back thru a normal amp - then you should know whether your headphones are at fault - most likely - or the fault lies with the RPi. If the RPi there are somethings that can influence the audio produced. Both my RPi B and RPi 2, prod...

Re: Recommendation webcam

Talking about local cost here, those are both more expensive than the new RPi camera module, and require a very precious USB port on your RPi.

The RPi camera as linked above should in most situations, be a better choice, but not all.
