From your Router config / admin screen do you see your Raspberry Pi?

A helpful video to watch.

Re: Power Supply will it work?

The specs are correct. "1000mA 5V output" I can't tell if that's a micro USB connection from the photo and there is no specific mention of micro USB in the description. You should be good to go "IF" you have a micro USB connection on the RPI end of the charger. Just to pass along some additional inf...

Re: What's the best PSU?

I saw the following where Eben mentions he uses a Kindle Charger. http://youtu.be/89sZvgI4AfU So I purchased a Kindle Fire Charger - OUTPUT (DC): 5V, 1.8A http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005CKAX82 I realize that the cost of the unit is 70% of the cost of the RPI, but bad power leads to problems.

Re: adding a cooling fan?

So, I've been looking at different Raspberry pi stuff, and am under the impression that it runs kind of hot. I've got my hands on a small fan, (2.5 cm X 2.5 cm) that draws 230 milliamps and runs on 5v. Is there a way to power the fan through the R-pi? Should I use the gpio pins? should I use anothe...
