Topic: Network connection keeps dropping.

I'm very happy with the initial release and I hope we can see continued improvements.

Is there a forum for posting problems or suggestions? My dash keeps prompting for a network connection. Not sure if it's the hardware, my network or some other issue.

Re: Network connection keeps dropping.

I've seen that on my Dash, although usually only on reboots.  Are you seeing this during normal operation?

Re: Network connection keeps dropping.

Yes. It will work for a day or two and then I walk in and it's waiting on selecting a network connection.

It always prompts on a reboot. I don't think I have a power issue, but it could disconnect from my wifi.

I may try shutting off the wifi and see what happens.

I identified an issue last night, If you didn't go through the dash setup where it asked that weird security question and answer, then it'll prompt for network connection after installing chumby.

To get around this, turn on SSHD

then ssh in, and enter these commands:

echo x > /psp/securityAnswer
echo y > /psp/securityQuestion

On your next reboot, it should not stop on the network screen.

Cleaning up any loose bits and bytes.

Thanks. That worked perfectly.

We'll try to address this issue on the next release.
