Jealous? My Pi Collection...

Re: The User Interface Failed To Load

i doubt its todo with the image, but rather the encyption on the data. My Pi connects via an Infrastructure mode using WPA2 (from my iphone)

I cant test if this changes as i have no other means of connection.

What power rating is the keyboard? Is it directly plugged into the Pi? No extension cable etc?

Re: 512MB Pi and USB Issues

Re: Win £20 if you can fix my USB Keyboard...

good point, but sadly its not over clocked, its just on standard :(

Interestingly if i plug the keyboard directly into the Pi it works fine, the distance between the Pi and Hub is about 1M, could this have anything todo with it?
