The wpa_supplicant.conf file should have the following inside. blah blah blah IMHO, this is bad advice for a beginner. It's too complicated and fraught with the possibility of frustrating errors. Whereas: 1. Connecting the RPi by ethernet; then 2. Opening a connection using puTTY, running raspi-con...
Well, I always do headless installations.
The only thing I do is add a file called ssh to the SD card.
And with ethernet connected, it always just works!
Once I'm in using puTTY, then I can run raspi-config and enable VNC, etc.
Then in RealVNC, I configure the wireless.
There may be people on this forum who have surplus 3B+s, having replaced them with RPi 4s.
This may tide you over until Apr 2020.
I got rid of 4 RPi 1Bs recently to someone in a similar position to you.
I'm running buster on an RPi 4 4GB. The RPi is connected to a Samsung TV by HDMI cable.
In Chromium, when I try to stream, the pictures come through just fine, but I need both RPi and TV at 100% volume to hear sound.
Is there a way to tweak the volume up a bit?
With the standard configuration the Pi expects to get an IP address via DHCP. Windows 10 also expects to get an IP address via DHCP. So if you connect them together on the ethernet ports they are both going to 'ask for' an IP address but thete's no router providing an answer. So you'd need to eithe...
I'm using a RPi4 4GB to stream TV in Chromium, with HDMI connection to a Samsung TV. The picture is fine, but the volume is so low that I need to put both the RPi and the TV on 100% volume and even then we strain to hear. And, yes, I am getting a bit deaf, but using a laptop to do exactly the same t...
I had this problem with a previous router. It would not allow "hairpin routing", so to access my website using its external IP address, I had to use a machine outside of my LAN. When I replaced my router, the problem went away.
I'm running buster on an RPi4 from VNC Viewer on a 1920x1080 monitor. I've edited /boot/config.txt as follows: framebuffer_width=1900 framebuffer_height=1024 The resulting display fills the screen, but the windows and the text on the taskbar are about twice as big as I want. The screen is garish. I ...
