Re: Trouble Getting HDMI Output From RPi4

Thank you to scotty101! Your suggestion did the trick to make my new RPI work. On my 30" Apple Cinema HD monitor I commented out the dtaoverlay line From dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d To #dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d and that did the trick! I think my monitor is getting too old for this fancy newer Raspberry Pi ...

Re: upon reboot hostapd fails to launch as a service but can be restarted at a bash prompt

@worldscott - I'm not an expert in this, but my solution was similar to yours, i.e. to add appropriate delays between the various applications to make sure they start in the right order and have time to initialise properly. You might want to consider using systemd to start the services instead of c...

Re: upon reboot hostapd fails to launch as a service but can be restarted at a bash prompt

Helpful guide, eh? Dnsmasq probably fails to start because dnsmasq.conf includes "bind-interfaces" and this option is known to work poorly with systemd. Do you have a reason to use "bind-interfaces"? - If you can't answer the question, remove that option. - If you do have a reason, replace "bind-in...

Re: upon reboot hostapd fails to launch as a service but can be restarted at a bash prompt

Re: WiFi 802.11ac 5GHz DWA-171 28MB/s SUCESS thanks to MrEngman

I too used MrEngman's script to successfully install an rtl8812au 0bda:881a Realtek device ( TP-Link Archer TU4H V1 to be precise). So thank you to him. I do question the potential longevity of the solution though due to the script looking for updates at startup. Perhaps I didn't find an already exi...
