You should not use a MOSFET if it is to be driven by a RPi GPIO - you should use a bipolar transistor. Even though MOSFET manufacturers are now producing MOSFETs with low VGS ratings, they do not operate efficiently at a drive voltage & current the RPi is capable of supplying. Two negatives associated with MOSFETS driven by high impedance drivers at VGS ≤...

Since you did state if all the colors were in one strip I will assume one LED strip for each color. There are many choices for the MOSFET. Since I do not know your resources or skill set I can only give you some guidelines to purchase them. The simplest interface would be to switch the LEDs (Low Side) with a N-Channel MOSFET. You need to connect the Drain ...

The reason is because wl is an emacs utility called WanderLust. Ref https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/WanderLust However, if you need the broadcom wl utility for wifi testing, you are able to get this from the Raspberry Pi product information portal https://pip.raspberrypi.com/ You may need to sign an NDA

Welcome Nerd5! From what I can see your MOSFET will not work, it has a minimum Vgs of 4V. Nice part but not guaranteed to turn on. Pick a MOSFET that will turn on at about 2 volts, that should have it enhanced enough to drive your boost converter. Connect the + of the converter to the +12V, and the other side - to the drain of the MOSFET. The source of the ...

When communicating signals by a voltage between devices (e.g. a serial link) you need a common reference voltage (e.g. ground). Connect a Pi ground pin to the other end's ground pin.

requires an active internet connection on the pi and my phone connected to the same network MiniDNLA does not require the former if by "internet connection" you mean something with access to the WWW ("internet" can be taken more broadly to refer to any IP based network, which would include two computers with an ethernet cable etc). But ...

I have been away from the RPi scene for a while, but I'd be surprised if you could not do a "distribution" update which involves ensuring the current (major release number) version on your RPi is fully updated before editing the sources to change it to the next one and then updating to that. For example the later part of https://phoenixnap.com/kb/...
