Can the Pi Zero W present a static IP address on Ethernet

Hello! I am busy setting up a new project. I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W mounted on a DIN plate from an accessory company. What I'd like to do is have the device pick up an IP address via its WiFi connection, and then do that step "Can the Pi Zero W present a static IP address on Ethernet?" (Subject ...

Re: The usbbootgui functiion

The "it" refers to the downloaded image.

The desktop contains the function. The blog mentions that this function works on the desktop, but that it is also available for the PI.

I am trying to track down what is involved with bringing the function to the regular OS on the Pi.

Every time I try to download a PDF of the current issue Chrome gets about half of the way through and reports that it can't. It repeatedly tries and fails.

By contrast downloading something new to me, a booklet on the New Pi Zero functions and New Pi functions for configurations, did work.

Configuring the DHCP service

Hello!
New project time:
I would like the Raspberry Pi B device I own, who now does work with Wifi, to serve out a DHCP created IP address to something. This could be a Pi Zero connected to the Ethernet connection for example via it's own methods.

Re: Logic and the GPIO

sorry, but IMHO the CD4041UB cannot be used as a level converter, it is also not designed as such to convert between 3V3 and 5V logic. The simple fact is that when powered with 5V the inputs of the device must be raised above 4V, to be reliable recognized as "high". there are probably more suitable...
