It just works ! Without using this feature Wireless is a Mega Pig to get going, I discovered. It may mean buying a ...

Speed of Burning SD cards - Help

I recently started using h2testw to test the speed of the SD cards I've been buying. I was shocked at finding 700-800 KByte/s was the norm of measuring Class 4 and Class 10 SD cards. Now using Win32 Disk Imager burning an Sd card at 758KByte/s ! I suspect my USB adapter ! What sort of speeds to othe...

Re: RTL8188CUS and AP/hotspot mode

The Belkin F5D7050 is less than GBP 5.00 on UK Ebay and works a Dream on Ubuntu 12.04 out of the box. (It is possible to annoy the network settings so it won't play any more.) I've not tried it on RPi ot as a Hotspot.

Re: wifi dongle

I'm using one of these , following a recommendation from someone else on the forums, and it's fine. I've had it about six weeks and it's used most days. Raspbian already has the drivers; raspi-config detected it and set it up - all I had to do was supply the access code for my router. It works plug...

As the local 3G mast offers 7MB/s which is a lot better than the very flaky landline Broadband, I've moved everything in the house over to WiFi apart from the RPi. Now I stumbled into Ubuntu 12.04 and the Belkin F5D7050 dongle - 'a marriage made in heaven' ! As it works out of the box ! I can turn e...

Re: Bash:- Glitch in output from GPIO

Unfortunately the value of 'y' never reached the GPIO pin and the glitch is still there.

So maybe a different type of loop ?
