Re: Raspberry Pi are already evolving

I have removed the composite video, audio, and ethernet connectors from mine and boosted the USB currents with the pi-pass jumper. I'm also planning to replace the USB connector. I'm trying to figure a way to use a micro SD card that won't stick out the side of the board. I'm considering replacing t...

Re: I replaced the USB connector on my PI.

Very nice. This is similar to what I want to do, however I want to have access to both USB ports, so I would need a dual 4 pin header. It seems like the spacing of the pins on the USB connector is *almost* .1 inch, however they aren't quite the same as they seem to follow the spacing on the USB-A co...

Re: USB Port Current Boost

I did the pi-pass using a 30ga solid wire. I am currently powering an Asus USB-N10 wifi adapter and a Logitech C250 camera using a 1A iPhone power adapter via the micro USB connector. As an added bonus I am cooking my dinner on the wifi adapter :) BTW I can hot plug a keyboard and the camera with no...

Re: USB Port Current Boost

I posted this http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... =45&t=9036 before I knew about this thread. I was thinking something like the Pi-pass might work. I'm going to try that and get rid of the hub.

Increasing available USB current

I'm trying to come up with a way to increase the current available to a USB device so that I can run a wireless adapter without the need for a separate powered USB hub that is physically as big as the Raspberry Pi and needs another power supply. This is the only way I could get an Asus USB-N10 adapt...

Re: Pi compatible WIfi adaptor

I was able to get an ASUS USB-N10 adapter to work using Arch Linux which includes the r8712u driver if you upgrade the distro. I used netcfg to configure and bring up the interface. I had a lot of intermittent problems with the adapter plugged directly into the board which went away when I began usi...
