Re: Pi3 doesn't work properly on WiFi over VNC

Not sure why you are messing with framebuffer settings?
I set hotplug enabled and change only the group and mode.
If you use the resolution setting menu in the GUI config tool or sudo raspi-config then the above edits to config.txt will be done for you.

Re: Port Forwarding to Pi

Hop 2 and 3 in the traceroute are in private IP range. Hm... thought most private IPs began with 10 or 192.168. That's unfortunate. If those originate at your ISP then they are using CGNAT and any attempt to port forward will be impossible. This is a common setup used by wirelesss 3g/4g or microwav...

Re: Alternatives to port forwarding?

You could get a router and, if necessary, an unmanaged switch, and simply use your ISP provided box as the modem. Then you set up the port forwards on the separate router and connect devices to the switch. Some ISP's, especially wireless 3g/4g and microwave linked, use CGNAT so you don't get a publ...

The primary purpose of a fuse including the polyfuse is to prevent fire / smoke. If the electronic circuits are also saved then that is more a matter of luck than design.

Re: Pi 3B+ / Shorting 3.3V to GND

If the red power LED is on then the fuse is not blown.
I blew up a week old RPi3B+ with a test lead. I believe I shorted 3V3 to the nearby chip with the metal raspberry logo which is grounded. The failure was instant. The 3V3 now measures 0V.
