hey guys just curious to know if you use ethernet cable or wireless to connect to your internet??? Ive read ethernet is slightly quicker and more stable! was just curious if its actually noticeable or if its only slightly better by degree's??
Well, I use wired ethernet for the desktop computer I refer to as "the lab", and my other desktops, but I use Wireless for the Pi 4. That way, I can leave the Pi on to run Bionc while shutting everything else down. Less "phantom loading" don't ya know! I've read postings saying that the Pi was not a good desktop, but I have to disagree. It has limitations, like any computer, but it seems to do everything I ask of it.
I purchased a kit, and it included the noobs micro sd card. I am using Raspian Buster. I have the 4gb version, and it runs fine.i was recently watching some youtbe reviews on the pie4 adn they all concluded that the pie4 can function very well as a dekstop computer. Have to say i was impressed and may look to get one in the future to tinker with.
Are you running puppy linux on the pie4? is a pie4 able to run a standard version of linux ??? or does it have to be a specially made os version for the pie??
I use wired as my main PC is not fitted with a wireless card and that don't bother me none as I prefer wire to wireless. My router is also a wireless router so I can use wireless for my laptop, though it is not hard to establish a wire connection as I only use my laptop on the desk anyway.
I obtain 100 Mbs over my connection with no problems
I just picked up a usb ethernet adapter for my laptop, for essentially those reasons. Only problem is there's no ethernet connection at work. So, I just run Linux, and keep it secured (insanely long passwords, MFA, etc.)Wired only for me...across the board, I don't mess with wireless junk. I consider it a security breach waiting to happen. All the WEP, WPA, etc., have been cracked. I keep saying only a matter of time til WPA2 gets roasted by the hackers, but nobody listens.
ha... on which computer?
On the HP server, two bonded ethernet NICs
On the ABS tower, mostly Ethernet
On the Dell Laptop, mostly Wifi
On the Lenovo Laptop, both
On the Intel NUC, both
On the MPM ruggedized, ethernet.
On the MiniPC, all 3. Ethernet two two different networks, and wifi.
The Dell laptop is the only non-Linux (MickeySoft) system.View attachment 6006
