Re: Temperature sensor (DS18B20) not detected

The sensor seems to work now, thanks! Enabling the 1 pin interface in raspi-config did it, somehow.

Temperature sensor (DS18B20) not detected

Hey guys, I'm trying to get a waterproof DS18B20 temperature sensor to work with my Pi Zero. I soldered the pins on (for the first time) yesterday. The cable to the sensor is 2m. Three wires, black, red, yellow. I've added the 'dtoverlay=w1-gpio' line to the config.txt and ran the two modprobe comma...

Re: Two Pi's, both on network with same IP address!

OK, so there is a permanent solution (meaning that the change will be applied at boot and survive a shutdown). At least, it worked for me running Raspbian Stretch Lite. The MAC address that these network adapters default to is 00:e0:4c:53:44:58. If you google this you will see that others have repor...

Re: Two Pi's, both on network with same IP address!

Thanks for your input, guys. I have now discovered the cause of the problem. My two Pi Zeros are currently using identical USB ethernet adapters (with integrated 3 port USB hub) bought on Ebay. It seems that these are often (or at least sometimes?) shipped with identical MAC-addresses, probably to s...

Re: Two Pi's, both on network with same IP address!

Hello and thank you for your reply. I have a fresh install of Raspbian Lite. I checked the interfaces file, it is empty. The IP must come from DHCP, is there any command I can use to verify that? I guess the DHCP server thinks the Zeros are the same device somehow. But doesn't each Pi Zero have a un...

Two Pi zero's, both on network with same IP address!

I have the exact same problem. Two Pi Zeros, connected to the same wired network via USB ethernet adapters. Raspbian Scratch. One is running a web server and has internal IP 192.168.1.104. When I start the other Pi Zero (which has a different hostname), it simply takes the same IP, disabling the web...

Re: Need help mounting Windows share

Hey again guys, an update. I recently got a Seagate Central, and can connect to it without problems. Great! I think the reason why I couldn't get the Windows 7 share to work was that the shared directory was a subdirectory of one of the Windows 7 users. Lesson learned, at least. Thanks again for you...
