Re: Raspbian Jessie equivalent to ipconfig /all?

ipconfig /all is an MS Windows thing and gives users a comprehensive set of info in one hit.

Oddly enough I googled 'ipconfig /all' and the first 9 hits were people asking how to get the same info out of Linux. None of them seem to work on the latest Rasbian. :cry:

Re: Getting 3 WiFi USB Adapters Working Help

Some devices have very low power requirements, but a WiFi adapter is not one of them! People with poor power supplies have problems with one Wifi adapter so 3 will definitely sow up any deficiencies. A good quality powered USB hub will help and/or one of these http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/plug-in-p...

Re: Pi 3 Serial Issues

So you want to disable system boot messages to the serial port and stop getty using it (i.e. stop the OS from using it) ... but you don't want to disable the port it's self.

Have a look here:- http://elinux.org/RPi_Serial_Connection

That looks very nice, what sort of range do you get with that? I guess it only takes up one USB slot.

Re: Probably a silly question

On reading beginners start up guides, it says I need a keyboard and display. Is it not possible to plug the Pi into my laptop instead of buying those two items? It is even possible to write the WiFi credentials to the SD card before plugging the card into the RPi. This way the only cable that is ev...

Re: Serial Communication Question

The handshake isn't for the Pi, it's for the peripheral. The Pi is the "Master" unit, but it has to set the "Handshake" line high or the "Slave" unit will ignore it. Not my design, I wish it wasn't set up that way, because I think that's going to make my life miserable... Sounds like you can just c...

I guess even if your PC is on the same network e.g. 18.111.15.44 there might be something in the AP/router that will block ssh to 18.111.15.45 As a test I would try connecting the PC directly to the RPi with an ethernet cable, get the new address of eth0 on the RPi** from the command ifco...

Re: Which of GPIO GND pins is the most suitable to supply po

Technically none of them ;-) they are all GND i.e. zero volts, zero power. Obviously that isn’t really what you mean. I think the simple answer is to say they are all the same but given the choice I tend to use ones nearer to pin 1. I suspect good HAT design would use several of them but that's not ...

You are talking about something that costs more than the Pi. Easier to just place the Pi on the back of a Flat Screen and let it do its thing off of the SD card.
