Re: WiFi Repeater Security

Folks, Last year there was a bit of a scare with wifi security and although no evidence of hack taking place manufacturers were busy putting out security updates. At the time, and I'm not sure why, repeaters were considered vulnerable. Source? Does anyone know if this is still the case? I use a cou...

Apologies for the late reply, but I only just decided my TV really needed an internet connection. So I started to follow the advice above but during setup I discovered said TV has WiFi.

this website did not asked me to update anything nor download anything to access this Raspberry Pi Forum website.
I believe OP was referring to elinux.org not the RPI forums, can't test with a Pi at the moment but using my Windows 10 laptop (using FireFox) everything appears normal.

What is the purpose of the different names
Perhaps to add clarification, though as you discovered it only adds confusion.
and what are the limitations / features of the difference.
No difference and limitations are the same.

Re: re-imaging RASPI's SD Card on the fly

You're looking at the problem backwards, make the USB device bootable and boot from that (obviously limited to Pi 3b(+)'s). Then do all your work from the USB drive.

Re: Power supply

If your PSU supplies 5V DC then no problems but best to post details of aforesaid PSU (and a circuit diagram of how you intend to connect 2 devices to 1 PSU). Under voltage would be a problem, the amount of current the PSU can supply is irrelevant as long as it can supply the required current and st...

Re: Pi 3 at 80 Celsius with no load (dead?)

If you've tried another uSD card with a fresh image of latest Raspbian and it's still hitting those temperatures with nothing else connected (or running) then your Pi is fried.

OK, I've read enough. If you favour other SBC's for their capabilities and or price that's your choice and you're welcome to it, but don't diss the RPI community. Apart from a few trolls (which coincidentally have few posts) I find most posters here very helpfull.

Guys, I assumed OP downloaded a Raspbian image, yes of course if he's still using noobs (seriously IMO one of the worst OS installers I've came across) then he should follow the instructions available.

Yes I call mine a pi3+ for short.
Which could cause problems in the future for others reading this thread, who knows there could be a 3A and/or a 3A+ released.

Best to refer to the actual model (and if relevant revision) to avoid confusion.

Switch the AC mains supply to the PSU.
This, although there are means to connect an on/off switch to the Pi (safely shutting down when powering off), if you are concerned with power consumption then removing power to the supply is the best method (obviously after shutting down).
