  1. Hi Fozzy Just a quick question I connected the dongle and Wi-fi settings shows wlan0 in devices like yours when I click down the same wlan0 is shown. I downloaded the driver and have tried to extract the files. Thanks Peter
  2. Hi Sorry for the confusion. I thought the price of the dongle it was worth trying that first as I do have a wifi signal outside as picked up by my phone if weakened. I wasnt sure if the ethernet home plug adapter would work with my wiring my outbuildings are on my main fusebox so it should work? I think I follow your first part of your instructions fozzy. But I am lost on the second part? Thanks for all your help
  3. Hi I clicked on the link you sent me. It says mini wireless N USB adapter TL-WN823N I will try tomorrow thanks
  4. Hi my tp-link wireless adapter arrived today I will try it out tomorrow. Just looking at the instructions you connect it to the computer RPI install the driver this can be done with the supplied CD or download. Do I connect RPI AB to a mouse and keyboard? Does AB have a browser I can go online with to download the driver? Then press WPS button on router and then WPS on the dongle Thank Peter
  5. Hi my laptop and iPhone still picks my Wi-fi outside. I have a small back yard my mount is directly behind the house. The house was built 1910 ish they are brick but old type. I had the house rewired when I moved in 13 years ago and I had electric supplied to my 2 sheds which I use for power for my Astro. I understand that a powered Wi-fi booster which uses the electric wiring the the most efficient? The cost of a dongle if it doesn’t work properly it can be used on a laptop when on holiday? Thanks Peter
