Re: Control powerfull pwm fans with Pi

I am interested in the same topic. Since my background is not in electrical engineering, I need a little more explanation than a diagram. In my instance, I want to control 2 fans synchronously ( http://www.delta-fan.com/Download/Spec/PFC1212DE-F00.pdf ). These are 4pin PWM fans from a server. For te...

Re: Issues creating an access point on RPi 3B+

If that is the case then my issue is resolved and I don't care about iptables in my instance. Thanks for the response.

Re: Issues creating an access point on RPi 3B+

It is my understanding that the country code must be set to enable wlan0. This produces wpa_supplicant.conf. After rebooting, my Pi is advertising and I can log in and get an IP in the specified range. Do I need the router/masq rules if I want a small isolated network? There will be no eth0 in my fi...

Re: Issues creating an access point on RPi 3B+

I followed the document above and the one change I made to my process is I didn't include my copy of wpa_supplicant.conf (that works) on the boot of the fresh sd install. Instead, I ran raspi-config and only configured the country code. I did not lock up with the warning on "sudo service dhcpcd rest...

Re: Fresh Install: Cannot set Wifi Country

Have you set the country through raspi-config? If not, run the following code:

Code: Select all

sudo raspi-config
Option 2 is the network option
N2 configures Country and Wi-Fi settings

Re: Failed to start hostapd.service: Unit hostapd.service is masked.

When will the update be available? The downloads for raspberrypi.org only lists 2018-11-13.

[Solved] Problems creating headless boot for Pi B+

1) I created a clean SD card following my steps outlined earlier. I did NOT copy my Windows version of wpa-supplicant.conf. 2) I ran through raspi-config and set up the wireless networking and verified that I could ping my Pi. I then copied /etc/wpa-supplicant/wpa-supplicant.conf to /boot. 3) I then...

Re: Problems creating headless boot for Pi B+

I am using the power supply that came in my kit. Newark Element 14 Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Physical Computing Kit. The wpa_supplicant.conf file was created in notepad++. I have only compared my file with the file in /etc/wpa_supplicant. I will redo my sd card and run through raspi-config to copy the...

Re: Problems creating headless boot for Pi B+

Sorry I missed that in my description. It is the latest Pi 3 B+ using the built in wireless. It works if I configure through raspi-config but I want to streamline my install and minimize my interaction other than cli.

Re: Problems creating headless boot for Pi B+

Since this works if I configure the wireless through raspi-config, there is no issue with the WiFi/SSID/odd characters. As expected, the file wpa_supplicant.conf was moved from the root of the sd card to /etc/wpa_supplicant so the file is where it should be and has been removed from the root. Thanks...
