I ordered a guruplug server plus in February from GlobalScale Technologies and it showed up 7 May
I looked for the CD that was mentioned as shipping with the plug but it was not there
After reading forum posts here, I managed to connect via WiFi. Things seemed to be working well with the minimum debian install UNTIL I plugged in an ethernet cable. After 4-5 minutes the status lights would go off and the plug would be dead. I configured the ethernet ports and started to ping the plug. Pings were OK for 3 minutes or so -- then started dropping packets and then stopped all together. If I don't attach an ethernet cable - system stays up but it gets much hotter after a few minutes of having an ethernet cable plugged-in
It then stops working.
I did note that my plug was a bit scratched up when I removed it from its wrappings but was sooo excited to receive it that I didn't care!
Now I need to decide to get it replaced or ask for my money back... BUMMER!
Oh dear. The many coding and database errors I see on Globalscale's site, and how they go unfixed for weeks, have made me worried for the Quality Control done on their products. I'm waiting for my 'plugs (GS says my order was shipped on 4/30, but still no shipping tracking number...), and I hope that your experience is the exception and not the rule. I had hopes of using the 'plugs for client services, but if I can't really rely on them except as fun toys (and personal, but non-critical, servers), well, that'll mean a little less money for GS.
