Re: HELP: iptables & geoip

Ok Fred, I worked out the steps. 1. Boot New JESSIE-Lite Image and do the usual setup in Raspi-Config sudo raspi-config 2. Update APT and Install packages that we will need (not sure if all are needed, but this seems to work) sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install git bc libncurses5-dev libtext...

I had tried that when looking at compiling the kernel, but when before starting the compile i searched the linux (kernel source) folder i couldnt find anything relating to xt_geoip so i didnt actually compile.

You said in an earlier post that the Linksys isnt being used as a router. You had disabled DHCP and nothing is connected to the WAN port. Effectively using it as a 4 port switch and Wireless Access point. The Linksys router is connected via on of its 4 LAN ports to one of the LAN ports on the Bell S...

Re: Deathly Slow Speeds as a Media NAS

Don't use 802.11g. It's half-duplex and at best you'll only get around 22Mbps. 802.11n with its aggregation/block-acknowledgement will give you a much higher throughput. (Though you'll never get 480Mbps as you wish on a RPi as you would get CPU-bound). The snag is you'll need to replace your AP. 80...

Thanks for the reply Gordon. Not being a programmer I was hoping to use the RPLCD library which makes life easier. However I won't be able to if I need to use I2C. My research has led me to guides on using I2C connected LCDs which are beyond my limited (read as none existent) programming abilities. ...
