Re: WPA / WLAN and eth0

They don't work together unless you tell them to.
Only one of wlan0 or eth0 should be connected to the internet by default.

So are you trying to switch between having your Pi connected to your MiFi and having the Pi connected via ethernet ?

Re: Setting up WiFi

From the fact that there's no IP address, I'd say he's not connected to the wifi network.
Whats iwconfig show ?
There's no mac address filtering enabled on the WiFi router is there ?

Re: Raspbian wont SSH any more

the output of ifconfig or ip addr will show the mac address.
ifconfig will show it after hwaddr
ip addr will show it after link/ether

You'll need to format it using a linux filesystem. ext4 is the most commonly used one.

Re: Rasp as a network traffic counter

No problems !
Be aware though that the Pi doesn't have the greatest bandwidth transfer capabilities.
2 NICs will be sharing the same USB bus so if you have super fast internet, the Pi may cause it to go slower.

Re: Hotspot Security

MAC address blocking is done via hostapd configuration ( I'm getting the idea that you want to block MAC addresses from accessing your WiFi ? Correct me if I'm wrong )

Re: Make the whole website more inviting and user friendly

One of the appealing things on the Pi is that you can do anything with it, which of course makes things a bit more complicated.
If you want an easy guide on what you can do, I recommend the MagPi e-zine. Have a look through the issues and you can get a good idea of what to start on.

Re: Can you connect 2 RPi to run XBMC and Retropie?

No.
If you want to run both XBMC and Retropie simultaneously, you need 2 Pis.
However, you can have both installed on one Pi, and switch between XBMC and Retropie.

Yes, it's possible, but like plugwash said you need to specify which traffic you want to count. You could conceivably monitor *all* traffic flying around your network if you had a switch with port mirroring Or you could monitor all traffic between your network and the internet if you put the Pi betw...

I'm pretty sure you need to explicitly set the Pi to use the 3.5mm audio jack. However I don't remember what you need to do, sorry.
