Thanks for an excellent guide !

One comment regarding external USB 3.0 Realtek WiFi. When I was configuring mine I had problems with building the source code. After some digging on this forum I managed to get it to work by running this set of commands:

sudo apt -y install raspberrypi-kernel-headers
sudo ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/arch/arm/ /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/arch/armv7l
sudo apt -y install git
sudo apt -y install gcc
cd /usr/src
sudo git clone https://github.com/EntropicEffect/rtl8822bu
cd rtl8822bu
sudo nano Makefile
# Update lines 100 and 101 to this and save the file:
# CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = n
# CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_RPI = y
sudo make
sudo make install

I hope this will help others who experience the same problem

PS My WiFi dongle is connected through USB 3.0 passive hub

That I am aware of and therefore I will also order external WiFi antenna (usb) :)

Also I have few repeaters at home that I can even plug outside

Hello,

This is my first question on that forum :)

I purchased Stellarmate and borrowed Pi 4 Model B 4 GB from a friend. After few minor hiccups while connecting my equipment I managed to get everything to work on both Pi itself and on my MacOS.

Since I have tested it and I am very happy with Stellarmate as a whole, I would like to buy my own PI and now finally the question:

How stable Pi 8 GB is with Stellarmate given the previous posts in this topic ?
Will I gain anything from buying 8 GB version, or perhaps I should go for 4 GB ?

Thanks in advance !
