    Answered FPP wifi issues

    Hi Franky. Sorry missed your reply. I’m not quite sure why both are connected to the network, I was following the tutorial from Brian Hensley and used his network example as the basis for my setup. I’m not good at all this network stuff so had to use a tutorial. Ah so your saying I won’t be...

    I think I may have worked it out. I had put the router IP into the eth0 gateway. Having deleted it I now seem to be able to connect without issues. Fingers crossed it keeps on working. Thanks again for all the advice.

    Hi franky Both the wlan and eth0 are set to a static IP and I believe are connected on the same network range as the house. I enter the IP address to connect to the FPP (I believe I have to do this because they are set to static IPs?) I’ll have a look for the FPP network next time it plays up.

    Thanks ezellner. I don’t think my wifi is switching off, I certainly don’t switch it off each night. Could not have something to do with tethering, should I switch that option off?

    To add to this while I do not have a static IP on my router I have checked and the IP has not changed

    Soldering strips - what size wire?

    Thanks for all the advice everyone, really appreciate it! I’ve given it another go tonight based on everyone’s tips and it seemed to work better, I actually got some semi reasonable connections on my practice runs so feeling a bit more confident already!

    Soldering strips - what size wire?

    Thanks everyone. I’ll make sure to tin the wires and pads first and try cutting the wires shorter. I definitely need more practice but the tips or tricks will make the job allot easier. Would a smaller gauge wire be easier?

    Soldering strips - what size wire?

    Hi everyone I am looking for some advice on soldering strips. Having never done soldering before I am having real difficulty soldering wire to the strips. I am using strips with 3 pads (Ray Wu’s) and Ray Wu’s 3 core pigtails. The trouble I seem to be having (other than the fact I am new to it)...

    What cable type to use?

    Thanks everyone, good advice. I’ll check those cables out. Good to know I don’t have to go running conduit everywhere!

    What cable type to use?

    Hi everyone I am wondering what type of cable you use for your displays, i.e rubber flex, pvc flex etc? My concern is about cables being used outdoors and in the extreme heat of summer (especially on the roof). From what I understand rubber cable is pretty heavy duty but also reasonably...

    Thanks Graham, nice display! That is pretty much along the same lines of how I want my display to look. Thanks for the other video too, very useful It’s a steep learning curve but I’m slowly getting my head around it all!
