Re: Dual band wi-fi extender

Thanks. Close but no cigar..

No external antenna connections and not an outdoor unit.

I must say that I'm a bit disappointed. Isn't the point of the Pi to experiment and learn? I didn't expect a "just buy one" style answer!

Re: Dual band wi-fi extender

The problem is that I am looking for a solution that provides an directional, high gain antenna on a 2.4Ghz client that can be placed outdoors with a small omni antenna on a 5.8Ghz access point that can be placed indoors. I don't know of any commercial solution that can do that. It would be great to...

Dual band wi-fi extender

Has anyone seen a project like this? I wan't to build a dual band Wi-Fi extender using a Pi, a 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi dongle and a 5.8Ghz Wi-Fi dongle. The idea is that the 5.8Ghz is set up as an AP so that local devices can connect (tablet, laptop, phone). Once connected to the local AP I want to be able to ...

Re: USB soundcard that works?

I managed to get a UCA202 working by overclocking the Pi, moving the root file system to USB (not sure if that helped) and disabling a few of the services that I didn't need as I don't run a desktop.

Still not 100% but it's much better.

USB soundcard that works?

Can anyone recommend a USB soundcard with output and input that just works?

I have tried 3 different ones now and all of them seem to suffer with the clipping problem.

Behringer UCA202 - No capture device

I have a Behringer UCA202 USB sound card that I am trying to get working with a 512 Pi. It appears in the syslog when I plug it in and I can see it as an option when I run alsamixer but the Pi only sees it as a playback device and does not allow capture. Do I need to load anything else to get the li...

Re: Working webcam examples

That sounds OK.

I've had a play and installed Motion and everything works fine in 320x240 but the video doesn't resize when set to 640x480.

Odd.

Re: Working webcam examples

I would want to get 640 x 480 working at about 10fps.

Anyone done anything like that?

Working webcam examples

Hi all, Does anyone have a working example of using a RPi as a live streaming webcam server? I can find a few examples of how to set one up but there seems to be a lack of actual live, working examples. I'm currently using a Windows 7 box to stream my USB webcam live but would love to get it running...

Re: Working webcams

Has anyone actually got a webcam working with the Pi yet?

Maybe we could list makes/models that work here?
