Re: Public /29 subnet question

If I understand this right the wire from your wall to the Fritz!box 7360 is in network 80.x.x.x/29 and the ports on the Fritz!box 7360 are in network 192.168.179.x/24

So the question is where are you plugging the RPi?

Re: Public /29 subnet question

Addresses in the range 192.168.x.x are private IPv4 network addresses, ping tests or any other connection from the Internet or other outside networks cannot be routed to it, they have to be port forwarded to it. I think packets to or from a private address range will be blocked by the internet. Your...

Re: assigning IP addresses to Sensors

You give one IP address to the RPi and then connect the sensors to it. The sensors do not have an IP each. So you can have many sensors on one IP.

I think I would be right in saying that it's a race condition as to which device is wlan0

Not all devices will act as an AP. Which one are you using for the AP?

A brilliant idea. 8-)

I wish I could find it but I once saw a picture of a truck with SIX motor cycles placed at various positions around it and the caption read "None of these bikes can be seen from the driving position"

A CCTV application would do the trick, have a look at zoneminder.com
