Re: Pi MAC Address

Your question seems to imply that you think the Pi has built-in WiFi? This is not the case. You have built-in wired Ethernet (the eth0 connection), but WiFi requires a USB WiFi dongle. The OP mentions the WiPi so I assume he's using Farnells WiFi dongle (http://uk.farnell.com/element14/wipi/dongle-...

Re: Login Error

A trick I used in my admin days was to let users type in the password first (when it asks you for the user name). That way you can check that the keyboard setup is correct. NB - just in case you missed this bit of info: when you type in the password you will *not* get any feedback from the system; n...

Re: Login Error

The password is case sensitive so make sure you type it in *exactly* as you did when you changed it.

Just in case the password did not get changed try 'raspberry' (without the quotes).

Re: nbtscan cannot see Pi

From your first post I gather your biggest worry is changing IP addresses. I solved this by letting the DHCP server in my router issue fixed addresses to my PIs. You basically link the MAC address to a fixed IP address. BTW: nbtscan apparently scans for NETBIOS names / services. AFAIK you *do* need ...

Re: Memory shortage

First thing I would check is if you're using the same memory split on both systems.
Settings are in /boot/config.txt so I would check if these file are the same.

Re: connecting raspberry with pc

You can always give a regular ethernet cable a try if you are going directly from pc to RPi as most ethernet is auto sensing and will work fine with a regular straight through ethernet cable. The Pi's ethernet port *is* auto-sensing, so you can indeed use a regular (straight) ethernet cable. Gr. Di...

Hi! Just look at this post: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=12960 It seems this adaptor should work, but I haven't tried it myself yet. It works.

Re: Network to Laptop

I wouldn't attempt to connect the PI and Laptop together with the same Ethernet cable this needs to be a cat6 crossover,
The ethernet port on the Pi is auto-sensing and there is no need for a crossover cable...

I find it is much easier to google the phrase and add raspberry pi on the end.
This generally brings up much better results.
Even better if you use google site search by adding 'site:www.raspberrypi.org/phpbb3/'

You could use Google Site Search: just add 'site:www.raspberrypi.org/phpbb3/' (without the quotes) to your keywords in a Google search box.
Generally works much better than any 'local' forum search.
