Well, here we go. First off I didn’t feel like spending $25 or $30 on a 100 foot Ethernet cable. But I had limited USB ports on it so I bought one of these. It was $8:
And then hooked this up to it:
Which means I can now get on the net with the Raspberry Pi. I do note – the default Midori browser on the thing is S-L-O-W. And interestingly when I visit the Mozilla site it offers to download Firefox for Android.
And I should mention, shift the 2 key on the keyboard and you get ” instead of @. I think I have to check the keyboard map on it.
Did manage to do:
apt-get upgrade –fix-missing
So it’s all up to date now.
And now that I’ve got extra USB ports I can hang a huge drive on the thing.
But here’s how it’s hooked up. I found the USB hub power isn’t up to snuff. So I’ve got it wired as so:
Power-in –> USB Hub
Power-in –> Raspberry Pi
USB out to USB hub
Keyboard and Alfa net plugged into USB hub.
And it all works.
