External WiFi dongle connected to an USB hub works for me
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
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
I anyway ordered 8 GB with Active Cooling Case in case I will use this pi for something else
I will order 8 GB then with some good case and use regular mouse instead
Thanks for the advice
Thanks for quick response
Is it "easy" to crash it or one must really try ?
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 !
