Re: WiFi adapter question.

Is there a supplier in the US for the adapter listed or equivalent? Also did this need a external power source?

WiFi adapter question.

Would it be easy enough to disable the onboard WiFi and use a different adapter for a raspberry 3b? Was wanting to use a adapter with 5ghz. If someone knows a adapter that will work without a ton of configuration that would be a plus. Also would a adapter need external power? Thank you for the info!...

Re: raspberry2 a upgrade as a nas over raspberry1?

woo thanks! lots of info. looks like I'm just going to have two old rasps as copies of each-other. this question is just for reference but would putting a gbe adapter on an older rasp help or would that be just useless?

raspberry2 a upgrade as a nas over raspberry1?

I was thinking about getting a raspberry 2 to replace my older one as a nas. Does more ram and a quad core help its ability to share files over smb? or I could just get a second old rasp1 and make another nas. :P hmm

Re: SMB server file size limit

first thing I suggest try and reformat your drive as ext4 instead of icky ntfs. using ext4 as your smb share will speed it up and probably fix your problem. ntfs is a lame format that wasnt really supported. also it takes more cpu power to use ntfs on a raspberry because of this or something like th...

Re: access point and smb share?

the raspberry runs headless with a split where most of the ram goes to the cpu. also the access point wont be used the same time as the smb share. when in use only a cell phone/tablet would use the access point and a single raspberry would be using the rasp smb share. oh and the smb rasp is only run...

access point and smb share?

I'm using my rasp version b as a smb share but I got a RTL8188CUS chipset wifi dongle.. so I was wondering if it would really hurt to set it up as a access point as well?

for a proper wifi accesspoint

do you need to have a wifi adapter that has an external antenna? or would one of those mini wireless N with no antenna be okay?

Re: NFS and SMB at the same time?

what is your /etc/exports supposed to look like? /etc/exports
/home 195.12.32.2(rw,no_root_squash) home(ro)
/usr 195.12.32.2/24(rw,insecure)
it keeps saying the files and directories don't exist. how am I actually suppose to set up the exports? also a lot of that page doesn't work.

Right now I'm using Raspbmc on a model B. I have been putting this down to the bad analog sound but I'm not sure.

when I try to ssh the key from one to the other is says there is no such file or directory. :(

EDIT: I put in sudo scp /home/pi/keypair3.pub pi@192.168.0.188:keys(.170 for the second)
it looks like I got one to cooperate and accept the keypair thing but the other says access is denied. :,(
