Topic: Chumby One suddenly rebooting with USB ethernet dongle
Greetings. My trusty Chumby One has been working great, always connected by ethernet usb dongle. I also use it as a Wi-Fi hotspot after the appropriate software mods.
Quite suddenly, it started rebooting randomly. Currently, it virtually always reboots either at the colored dots stage or the waving Octo stage -- IF an ethernet dongle (I've tried two) is plugged in.
If I boot without anything in the USB port and connect via Wi-Fi it seems OK, but I haven't left it that way long enough to know if it would suddenly boot at random times under that circumstance also.
I discovered that if I let the Chumby boot with the USB port empty, to the point of asking which connection I want, and then plug in the usb ethernet dongle, it will usually reboot at that point, though a couple of times it went a bit further to the initial data statistics confirmation page before suddenly rebooting. One time it did come up with the ethernet usb connected, but started rebooting again about 24 hours later if I left the usb ethernet connected.
Any suggestions on keeping this baby running would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all! Take care.
