Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

<t>You will only be limited by the number of entries available in your port forwarding list. Some routers have a pretty short list. Port forwarding to each device is tedious though. Each different device can be at a seperate intranet IP. You may not even have to use all that port forwarding if you u...

Re: Tablet.

<t>From the schematic it appears the raspi will have a pretty wide voltage input range (6 to 20 volts). If true that should not be problem. As to powering the USB, tearing down a powered hub and finding space for it should not be too much of a problem as long as it is small. Protecting the circuit w...

Re: Ethernet port?

So the ethernet runs through the USB off of the CPU? It thens breaks out into an ethernet and two USB's. So the ethernet is technically half duplex?

Re: What have we missed?

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

<t>Abishur wiring a Ras.Pi directly inside a router should allow it to be accessed through the inter or intranet for control. You can either forward ports to it or just DMZ it. You can establish a bridge or connect it to LAN if you use a wireless router. The main problem with the router I intend to ...

since the memory board is on top of the processor cooling an overclock could be a problem at the upper end of the clock! is there thermal paste in between the processor and the memory unit?
