If you can get a connection run sudo apt update; sudo apt -y dist-upgrade. There's been some improvements to WiFi this week.

Re: VNC Server Icon not showing in the task bar

RealVNC is already installed in Raspbian. There is no need to install anything more. When VNC is enabled by GUI or sudo raspi-config then RealVNC will autostart on boot so no need to do anything more. Use the appropriate client RealVNC viewer from here: https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/v...

Re: 13W Versus 12.75W Power Supply

On the specifications, it shows both are 5V and 2.5A Output. Difference is 12.75W PS's price is lower. Also, both has the same brand.

I guess I'll have to go to the 13W one to be sure regarding its performance. Thank you, I appreciate the replies.

13W Versus 12.75W Power Supply

I'm currently browsing an online shop in which I saw 2 options for the Pi 3 power supply. 1 with 13W and the other, with 12.75W.

- The thing is, err. any reason to make a less .25 W supply?
- Will it affect the Pi in some way?

Thank you.

Re: Powering up Pi 3 using a power bank

Hence, the shorter the cable the better as the power can consistently flow faster through short cables than long. Shorter cable drops less voltage. "consistently flow faster" is mumbo-jumbo. The formula you mention is theoretically correct but in practice: 1. Your RPi is not drawing 2.1 amps. Possi...
