Re: Downloads don't seem to go faster than 1.3MB/s.

So I wasn't able to learn from the iostat command which makes sense because the issue was my vpn service. I need to check the openvpn configuration file or generate a new one.

Thanks for the input all.

@dh499

Maybe the IP address of the rpi has changed. Are you able to ping it? Goto command prompt or powershell in windows and try to 'ping rpi.address' the rpi.

Re: STICKY: Making your own custom burn-n-boot Raspbian image

Well I copied a working wpa_supplicant.conf into the image and it contains the country code so I think perhaps the country code needs to be set elsewhere. Nope, I do it all the time with new cards by placing a pre-configured wpa_supplicant.conf on the FAT32 "boot" partition. Pi boots up a...

Good day, I recently went to update my very out-of-date Raspberries and had a lot of troubles. (This is a plug for backups!)

Downloads don't seem to go faster than 1.3MB/s.

I'm on a 75Mbps connection so a little over 9MB/s is my download speed. I max it out all the time. On my RPi4 though, torrents don't ever seem to download over ~1.3MB/s. There are no download limits set in the settings. Running speedtest-cli tells me I can download close to my theoretical limit. Don...

What I understood is: you want to have a LED blink while rsync is running. Could be done with some shell script (untested) #!/bin/sh python3 blink.py & BLINK_PID=$! rsync .... kill -3 $BLINK_PID The blink.py should catch signals and properly cleanup gpio. Here an example, just printing some tex...

That's because the default locality for Raspbian/RPiOS is GB (Great Britain, since the Pi was invented in the UK), but that should not affect login with the default pi/raspberry, since none of those characters are affected (US and UK English keyboards use the same keys for all the characters in pi ...

This worked for me. Thanks!

My wpa_supplicant.conf didn't take though because the country was not set (it is set in the wpa_supplicant however).

What file must I edit to set the country code?
