Topic: Chumby classic - Dead Wifi
Just brought my old Chumby Classic back from the dead for a project, but it looks like the wifi dongle is toast. The MAC address shows up 90% of the time as 00:00:00:00:00:00. It showed up briefly with a real MAC address once after taking it apart and reseating it, but it had trouble detecting wifi hotspots, wouldn't connect to the one it did detect, and now it's back to 00:00:00:00:00:00 no matter what I do. I took it out and plugged it into my laptop and it doesn't show up with lsusb. So, yeah. Reasonably sure it's a goner.
How impossible is it to find a compatible replacement in 2022? Should I just buy a new Chumby?
