Re: Question about using the RPi with a relay.

Bumping this thread because it's the same question I have. I have the same relay but plan to connect two of them to garage door openers which draw either 3v or 5v (I forget which one at the moment) so power draw will be low and at no point will I ever trigger more than one for a very brief period.. ...

Re: USB keyboard & mouse suddenly not working??

Just a quick update, I decided to start over again yesterday and the USB ports work on both Raspberry Pi devices now. I'm sure it was something corrupt with the software but no idea how that happened since it was working fine the last time I used it and then about a week later I came back to continu...

Re: USB keyboard & mouse suddenly not working??

I don't have the knowledge of how to use SSH, putty or Noobs. I have the newest version of the Pi (two now) and they don't come with SD cards. I can see if I can locate another but I have a feeling it's going to be the same thing since both Pi's do the same thing with the same card installed. I trie...

Re: USB keyboard & mouse suddenly not working??

Bumping this thread because my new Pi arrived & swapping over the SD card it's the same thing. No USB. That tells me that the Pi wasn't the problem & my problem is software based. Now, given that I haven't done a whole lot with this device yet I'm not sure what I could have even done that wo...

Re: USB keyboard & mouse suddenly not working??

If ethernet works then your crystal is fine... The ethernet is also on the USB bus... Are you sure the power is getting through to the USB devices? You could try using an external power supply... Or if you have a multimeter available measure the voltage on the pins of the USB connector... If the et...

I also took the wireless Logitech keyboard Mouse combo that I have and tried that w/o any luck. Same thing, no response at all. The wireless combo is on the approved list as well (MX3200). The USB dongles (wireless adapter & keyboard adapter) don't show any activity at all when plugged in.

Hi There, I'm not 100%, but it sounds like it may be connecting to the network just fine but maybe not auto-starting the web server? One thing I'd recommend that might help with troubleshooting is setting up the pi with SSH server running on startup: http://cplus.about.com/od/raspberrypi/a/How-Do-I...

Thanks for your help & the info Trev. I'll hit up that section for sure to see if I can find a solution to my issue.

And to think this is the 'easy' part and up next I'll have all sorts of questions when it comes to coding to customize the GPIO interface. :lol:

Yes, for this project I do need external access. I need to be able to access from a browser anywhere, not just when on my home network. Hence setting up port forwarding. I plan to change the login & password as well but first I need to be able to connect to the darn thing which is where I'm hung...

Re: How do I get my Raspberry Pi to connect to network on bo

I should also note that I set the port for this IP to 8892 to match the IP address so it reads like this:

192.168.1.192:8892

I have the IP provisioned via static DHCP to the Raspberry Pi's MAC & then I have that port forwarded to that IP in the port forwarding section... all within the router.

Yeah, I prefer wired when possible but didn't feel like running a network cable over at this point.

I do have over 20 wireless clients (almost all on the 2.4GHz band at that) so I like to r...
