What is a safe level of current for a GPIO input pin

Hi: I want to connect a device whose output voltage is a maximum of 5V to a GPIO pin setup as an input. I intend to use a resistor connected between the device output and the GPIO pin to limit the current to the pin. I've looked through the Raspberry Pi documentation but can't seem to find out what ...

Re: Setting up wi-fi on a Raspberry Pi Zero

Success !!!

BTW: I would still be interested in any documentation that you might be aware that describes this functionality but for the moment I will just
enjoy the satisfaction of being able to access the net :-)

Re: Setting up wi-fi on a Raspberry Pi Zero

I followed your suggestions and ended up on the "Network Preference" screen that shows the SSID of my router. However even though the "Automatically configure empty options" is checked when I press the "Apply" button the 5 remaining options (IPv4 Address .. DNS Search) on the screen remain blank and...

Re: Can you have a wired network connection to the Pi Zero

Thanks for all the suggestions. I've found a 3 USB port, 1 Ethernet port hub on the Adafruit web site that seems to be exactly
what I wanted.

Thanks Again

Can you have a wired network connection to the Pi Zero

Looking at the Raspberry Pi Zero, I noticed that it does not have a connection for a Network Cable. Is there any way that
I can connected the Pi Zero to one of the Network Connection ports on my router ?

Thanks

Re: Setting up wi-fi on a Raspberry Pi Zero

In response to your instructions " network icon in task bar. Find your SSID and click on that then enter your WIFI password", I was looking at what I believe in the network icon (It was next to the Bluetooth icon") and I somehow managed to remove the network icon. Short of reloading the OS, is there...

Setting up wi-fi on a Raspberry Pi Zero

I just finished installing the OS (Linux 9 Stretch) on my first Pi Zero and would now like to setup the system for Wi-Fi. I inserted the dongle on a USB port and then according to the instructions on the site, I am supposed to launch "WI-FI Config" from the desktop. Unfortunately when I entered that...

Re: Kernel Panic : VFS :Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block

Hi: I observed the same problem while trying to set up a raspberry Pi Zero. After reading some of the previous replies to the original post, I reformatted the SD card, re-imported the OS and place SD Card into the Pi Zero. The only other thing I did differently from the failed attempt was to remove ...

Can't get PiFace Digital board to work with Piface Rack

I recently purchase a PiFace Digital board and attached it directly to my Raspberry Pi. I then brought up the simulator and was able to use it to cause the selected LEDs on the Digital board to light up. I then connected the same board to the Pi using the Piface Rack board. I checked the address pin...

Is ftp included in the Raspbian distribution

Hi: I recently purchased a Raspberry Pi with the default Raspbian OS. An article I am reading said that FTP is normally included in a Linux distribution, but when I attempt to execute the FTP command, the system indicated it could not find the command. Is FTP included in the OS and if not, where can...

Terminal type of my keyboard

I purchase a Raspberry Pi kit which included the Gear Head Windows Mini USB Keyboard Model No. KB1700U, PID# 121371-109247. When I use it with the Pi, I have found that certain keys do not display the expected symbol on the actual key. I contacted Gear Head and was told that this keyboard was a "Gen...
