Re: Pi B+ - where are the voltage testpoints?

PP1 & PP2 = +5VDC directly from the mirco USB PP7 = +5VDC after the fuse. PP3 = Ground (But easier to connect at other places such as metal shields on Ethernet jack etc). THanks! I found the PPx points and measured PP1 agains the Ethernet case. It was a bit low at 4.86V, but I guess it is still wit...

Re: How to connect WEP WiFi network?

I may have stumbled across the solution!
I removed the quotes around the ssid so the lines now reads:

Code: Select all

iface wlan0 inet dhcp
   wireless-essid myssidname
   wireless-key FF23ED193A
And now it managed to connect!

Thanks!
I did not receive an email alert on the replies so I thought my question went unnoticed....

How to connect WEP WiFi network?

I have a small Realtec WiFi dongle that I want to test with my new Pi B+. I followed this guide regarding the general handling. The adapter shows up when I do the dmesg command as follows: [106831.059863] usb 1-1.5: new high-speed USB device number 4 using dwc_otg [106831.161539] usb 1-1.5: New USB ...

Pi B+ - where are the voltage testpoints?

I am used to check the incoming voltage on the Pi to see if there is a problem with the supply. On the Model B there were test points that could be used for this, but I cannot find any on my newly bought B+. So how can you check what is actually delivered to the Pi after the supply drop because of l...
