Re: Looking for a simple QoS solution for my OBi200 (using a Pi as a router)

Thanks for the link! I did find this guide: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Adv-Routing-HOWTO/lartc.cookbook.interactive-prio.html I placed rules in the forward chain of the mangle table to set TOS to Minimize-Delay on packets to/from the IP address the OBi is on. Sadly it didn't have any measurable effec...

Looking for a simple QoS solution for my OBi200 (using a Pi as a router)

I've recently dumped my ISP home phone plan for an OBi200+GV instead. Normally all is well except when I have something running that saturates my upload/download which causes the phone connection to suffer. I'm using an old Pi as my router. I'm looking for a simple solution to prioritize traffic to ...

Re: openvpn bridged configuration issue

Re: openvpn bridged configuration issue

Fixed it! The problem: being a total idiot. Somehow in server.conf I missed placing "0" at the end of tap0. Thanks for the help and putting up with me epoch1970. I had the feeling it was something incredibly dumb and it was.

openvpn bridged configuration issue

After getting everything working on my CentOS testing virtual machine, I'd thought I'd set it up on my Pi. Things went well until it came to setting up the bridge-utils scripts. On my testing virtual machine, when I ran the bridge-start script it would take the IP address off my Ethernet interface. ...

Re: How to use I2C without a Pi??

You can also get a MSP430 launchpad (used to be around $5 USD, but prices have gone up.) You can get the chips free in small quantities via TI samples. Easy to use with the Energia IDE.

I started to play around with my wireless card settings again. For some reason I can't set it back to the default power of 20dBm, the command did not show any error messages when I ran it but when I checked iwconfig it still lists tx power as 27dBm.
