[Solved]Autostart Teamviewer in Stretch

I'm trying to get Teamviewer 13 to start at boot but I'm not having any luck. If I run this in terminal /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script/teamviewer it starts. But when I add the entry @/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script/teamviewer to the file /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart, nothing happens. Wh...

Re: RPI 3B not working

Silly question, but why'd you pay $100 for something that sells for $35? Seems obvious to me that either some other damage was done when the metal shield came off or when you put it back on. No green led means the SD card isn't being read. If you can't see where the damage is, then it is time to buy...

Re: How To: Wifi to Ethernet Bridge(Updated for RPi 3)

The directions you link are the opposite of what I want. I want to connect the Pi's wifi to an existing wifi network, bridge that to eth0 and connect to the wired connection on a laptop or the wlan port on a router. What I posted above and you quoted does exactly that. The wlan0 interface is a clie...

Re: How To: Wifi to Ethernet Bridge(Updated for RPi 3)

You were not very clear. I presumed what you wanted, since you hijacked this thread. Set up wlan0 as a wifi client. Insure it works. Install dnsmasq for dhcp service. sudo apt-get install dnsmasq My /etc/dhcpcd.conf addition: interface eth0 static ip_address=192.168.6.1/24 My /etc/dnsmasq.conf file...

Re: How To: Wifi to Ethernet Bridge(Updated for RPi 3)

There are two types of access point setup 1) NAT 2) Bridge The one described in the OP is a NAT ap, and it won't work with Stretch as the OP described. This does. Use the first example. https://github.com/SurferTim/documentation/blob/6bc583965254fa292a470990c40b145f553f6b34/configuration/wireless/a...

Pi 3 as wifi repeater

What I want to do is use a Pi 3 to connect to a wifi network, bridge that connection to the wired port, connect the wired port to the wlan port of a wifi router, and then setup another wifi network with a different ssid, on another channel. What CLI commands do I need to setup the bridged connection?

Have you tried "restart" instead of "start"? Or just re-booting? Mysql should start automatically when you boot.

Re: Extending Wireless Range

There is no LEGAL way to do what you want, directly. You could put an access point acting as a range extender somewhere between your router and the Pi, configured as either a wireless repeater or as a remote, wired, range extender. There a many things that are supposedly illegal but will never caus...
