Topic: chumby.com is unreachable

hello

Since today - i do not know when - there is no connection.
I just restarted but now the text "chumby.com is unreachable" appears.

Is this a known problem for all or just for me?

Re: chumby.com is unreachable

Have you been speaking kindly to your chum? He may be on a fast. Just kidding.
Have run into this myself a few times. I just restart wifi from the modem up and then restart chumby. I have also erased wifi connections and re-searched for wifi connections again and put in passphrase again. Have you moved the chumby further from the router?

Re: chumby.com is unreachable

Thank you.

No.  the chumby is at the same place and
Yes i did delete the connections and found the wlan (and all the others here) and reentered the password.

I think i will try to flash a kind off offline software

Hello Chum:
My chumby died the other day, also. I thought it was just its time to pass quietly into the night. Perhaps it is more of a universal problem.

How exactly did it "die"?  Does it not power up, or does it not connect to the network?

just 4 info: i just installed the offline-firmware and now all works fine. i do not know what the problem was but that does not matter if it works fine now.

your chumby's power supply may have died, Doktor jones is selling adapters to let you use a compatible adapter.

there's also videos on youtube about how to crack the adapter open and fix it, if you're handy with a soldering iron.

This thread covers the issue you're seeing with the Chumby One.

Re: chumby.com is unreachable

I have the same issue since two days on my chumby one (with zurk's FW). "chumby.com is unrechable". It starts with stopping to show the correct time. After device reboot and after connecing the network the message above occurs.

/edit
After FW-reinstall, the chumby is working again. smile
