op LED brightness

I find the Jumbospot operational LEDs distractingly BRIGHT. Any way to dim them down with the RPi 0W, or on the hat itself? Putting various layers of tape over the case slot hasn't proven satisfactory....Thanks, Aloha, Steve WH6ST

Re: uSD won't boot Jspot

IT'S ALIVE! IT'S ALIVE! Using win32diskimager did the trick for copying from the original 8GB uSD to the new 16GB card. Still wondering why the pistar img-to-etcher failed to allow wifi connection.....Thanks all for the help, I learned a lot. Aloha, Steve WH6ST

Re: uSD won't boot Jspot

Now I'm really starting to worry...Toshen, I followed your instructions to the letter. Used one of the "old" uSD cards, and one brand new. Used both the standard Rpi image, and the Beta. Neither Jspot will connect to WiFi. Put in the original "known-good" uSD, everything works fine.....What the heck...

Re: uSD won't boot Jspot

Thanks for your replies. Can one easily copy and paste from one card to another (on Windoze)? I was guessing not. I'm guessing also the the RPi Zeros are working fine, because they, well, work fine with the one good uSD. I bought some new cards and I think I'll try flashing to beta version to see if...

Re: uSD won't boot Jspot

Yes, RPi Zero W. I'm flashing the rpi image using Balena Etcher. Tried flashing both the zipped and unzipped files. The process seems so simple- download correct file, flash to card, install in spot. But somehow I, or my computer, am missing something. As mentioned above, when examining the files (I...

uSD won't boot Jspot

Hi gang. I'm still quite new at this stuff. Problem: I have one uSD card for 2 Jspots. Trying to create another. No matter what I do- multiple downloads of pistar, re-formatting, you name it- the new (multiple) cards won't boot either Jspot. The thing I've noticed, when examining the files on the op...

3 questions

Hi gang. I'm new to this whole hotspot thing, and not the sharpest computer tool in the shack, so...I'm using a Jumbo spot on a Pi Zero W.... 1) can the Pi0W be connected to my internet modem/router via its USB port (hard-wired)? 2) Both the Jumbo and the Pi have WiFi antennas. Which one is being us...
