Re: Pi 3 WiFi was working but now not... Bluetooth works

Re: Pi 3 WiFi was working but now not... Bluetooth works

Bluetooth only appears to work much like the WiFi I tried to use BT to connect to my phone and I can never see the RPi and my RPi never sees my phone (or anything for that matter)

Re: Pi 3 WiFi was working but now not... Bluetooth works

I also have been trying several different power supplies. The one I am connected now says output is 2.7 A previously I had a 2 A and before that I had an official RPi wall wart that says 1 A.

Pi 3 WiFi was working but now not... Bluetooth works

I had my Pi plugged in about 2 months ago and the WiFi was working fine. Now that I plug it in it just says searching for APs. I went ahead and downloaded the newest NOOBs to see if it was some kind of update issue. However on the install menu WiFi is just grayed out. What should I try next? PS. Mos...

Re: Remote Network connection via Cell 3g 4g etc

Thanks for that. Do you know anything about the shields I am seeing everywhere? They seem expensive compared to just getting a USB dongle.

Raspbian Pixels: Power symbol

I am using a Raspberry Pi 3 that I just got and I have tried several power supplies including an official Rpi 5v 2.1 amp wall plug and all of them throw this low power symbol each time something is opened or processing is done on the system. I read in several places that 1 amp should be sufficient. ...

Remote Network connection via Cell 3g 4g etc

Is there a resource list of cell connections that work with Raspberry Pi?

I thought on Elinux site they had a list of USB dongles that worked but I was unable to find that list. Are shields better?

Now that I have tried using reverse SSH I remember that most of the ports are blocked and I didn't find a good solution to get around that.

depends on how much control you have of the router where the remote RPi's are if you cannot forward the ssh port they you cannot login from the external side [well it become more difficult] if your master location is easily controlled then you can have those remote RPi's log into that machine and d...

Re: Updating custom scripts and programs - remotely located

To update in the manner your describing would I need to download the file then have a script run to chmod it? This was actually one of the first things I tried, admittedly I have learned a lot since then but still am not clear on how I would accomplish this.

Re: Updating custom scripts and programs - remotely located

I had trouble with connecting back to the server on dynamic IP. I partially got this figured out using no-ip but still had connection issues (I assume) because I was running at 1mbps down and .5mbps up.... However I recently upgraded and now am thinking it might be worth trying again.
