Re: OpenWRT on Pi 3

Thank you for your input and shared knowledge Matt. I'm something of a novice at Linux, however I've been dabbling with it for almost 15 years now and had an interest in it for 20. :-) The last time I compiled something was on a Trustix box about 12 years ago. I re-compiled the kernel to introduce n...

Re: OpenWRT on Pi 3

Did this ever go any further? I'm surprised that one of the geniuses out there, has not built a OpenWRT/Raspberry Pi3 image as of yet? Or have they??? :-)

Update killed my USB antenna

In brief, I did an update and now one of my USB Wi-Fi radios is not working. Although when I do an 'ifconfig' it is listed as an interface. However it's not picking up an IP as it used to. I have a RPi 3B based AP/router. It worked okay, but the internal built-in WiFi/Radio (Broadcom BCM43438) had r...

Please help! Jessie update killed my WiFi router

Please help! I have a Rasperry Pi 3B based AP/router. It worked, but the internal WiFi/Radio (Broadcom BCM43438) had very poor coverage and dropped a lot of packets and therefore was quite latent. The setup at one time was: 'wlan0' using the built Broadcom BCM43438 WiFi radio 'wlan1' using an extern...

Re: WiFi-MiFi router and clustered NAS

Big thank you to by 'epoch1970' for your suggestions and feedback. Well after a great deal of deleting and flushing. In all fairness it went on for some time, I couldn't actually tell you what combination actually worked. But it required editing and deleting these files it seems on both sides of the...

Re: WiFi-MiFi router and clustered NAS

I'd just like to add to this discussion that I'm using 'dnsmasq' as a DHCP server. Last night I think I found how to insert a MAC/IP into the dnsmasq.conf configuration document, so that it is picked up by a pre specified machine interface with the matching MAC address (In my case rpi-20 and rpi-30)...

WiFi-MiFi router and clustered NAS

WiFi-MiFi router and clustered NAS. This is kinda what I've built, although I could do with some collaborative help in maybe optimizing. A brief yet slightly more detailed description: I have stacked 3 Raspberry Pi 3B+'s on top of one another with perspex dividers. The top unit called rpi-10, the mi...
