Topic: Are 20,000 retried packets per hour normal?
After having the chumby up for a few hours (and about 8 feet away from the wireless AP), the wireless status screen shows the following. Do all the "excessive retries" and "invalid misc" mean anything, or is that normal operation? If it matters, we sometimes see the chumby show a blank (but on) screen (i.e. no widgets displaying) even though the chumby is up (can be pinged, webserver keeps updating wireless status, can bring the control panel up).
