Title: New Raspberry Pi...
Post by: Larry on December 18, 2012, 08:26:09 PM
Well, we finally got our Pi's from Allied Electronics.  Well, Daddy and I got ours...  Danny is still waiting to come home to get his.  I have found several different things that can be done with this Pi and we will be exploring all sorts of possibilities...  mostly to learn what it is capable of and how we can incorporate it into out balloon project.  Hopefully, we will be able to make good use of this forum to help us bend the Pi to meet our needs.

 >:(  I tried to set up the wireless program, but I think that the info for my particular unit is not in their database so may have to go with another unit (brand).  :'(

If you don't mind, put the Brand information on here so we don't run down the same rabbit trail...  hehe

The wireless dongle arrived.  It is a TP-LINK model TL-WN722N.
I used the 'Wireless Config' routine found on the desktop.  It will almost setup itself.

I checked again with the 'other' wireless dongle and it couldn't be recognised. (I had to be sure)   :D
