disable built in wi-fi on rp3.

  • Hi

    i have added a wireless dongle to my rp3 to improve wireless signal. all works great but since adding it i keep getting the power low indicator in the top right hand corner. ( dongle drawing to my power? ) can i disable the builtin wi-fi and bluetooth to save some?

    Thanks Matt

  • The RPi3 is notorious for power problems, especially with "cheaper" power supplies. If you still have issues you could change your power supply for a higher amperage, or think about running the wifi dongle off of a powered hub.
