Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

Fantastic instructions! Worked like a charm with my ASUS USB-N10 plugged directly into my Pi. Thanks so much! Your comment puzzles me slightly as according to MrEngman "... you'll need to find the right driver, as the N10 driver is different to the one used with the Edimax. 8192SU rather than the 8...

Re: Slow response to everything through LXDE

Actually I just found out that my problem was not my hub itself, but the fact that it doesn't support low-speed and high-speed peripherals to be plugged together. So when I only plug my dongle, everything is perfect, but if I add my mouse, LXDE becomes slow again. It means that for the moment I can...

Re: Shouldn't Rpi developers be payed by the Foundation?

I agree with the earlier post by Mike Thompson, that the Raspian Section of the Forum, is not the correct place for this discussion, which can hopefully be 'relocated, by either a Moderator, or by Admin.

Thanks.

I suppose that reply begs the question "how are we supposed to know which ones are 'switch mode' power supplies anyway?", as it isn't always apparent from a brief description.

Re: Slow response to everything through LXDE

Those of you who are looking to buy a 'verified' powered USB hub, should be aware that a lot of the models shown on the 'wiki' list were added in the early days, before people started adding such things as Wi-Fi adapters and hard drives to their RasPi's. The Newlink NLUSB2-224P 4 port USB 2.0 Mini h...

Re: installation for 8gb SD card

Just to clarify here, the 'partition resizing' process, when selected under 'raspi-config is not actually performed until the next time the RasPi is restarted, and a text message is displayed at that time.

Out of interest, what is the rating of the PSU for the Logic LP4HUB10 powered USB hub please?

Also, is the power connection to the hub a 3.5 mm o/d 'barrel' plug, or something else?
