1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: guruplug server plus arrived but died on: May 20, 2010, 10:45:57 PM
Hi,

I got my GuruPlug Plus a week ago. I am using it with one Ethernet cable connected, Wifi sometimes on, sometimes off. The Ethernet is connected to a Fritz Box (100 Mbit).

a short update: I wanted to test the behaviour with Gigabit Ethernet. Since I do no have a Gigabit Switch I connected directly to my MacBook. And in addition I used the JTAG console to be able to observe what's going on. The Guru booted fine. As expected it had no IP address (no DHCP server). I configured it by hand and got the connection to the MacBook. The GuruPlug did never crash nor reboot nor anything suspicous over several hours. But under load it several times lost the IP address and I had to manually do ifconfig to set it again. Which always worked. So there is something fishy with the Gigabit Ethernet. Could also be software related, though.

Hi,

I got my GuruPlug Plus a week ago. I am using it with one Ethernet cable connected, Wifi sometimes on, sometimes off. The Ethernet is connected to a Fritz Box (100 Mbit). I am at 230 Volts. GuruPlug is working absolutely stable and fine since days. I am also using the Bluetooth heavily and also no problems.

The GuruPlug is warmer than my Sheeva but I would not say it's "hot".  My MacBook Pro gets much hotter - when I have booted Windows Vista, under MacOS it's cooler ;-)

The power consumption is about 3.8 Watts without Wifi and 4.3 Watts with Wifi - similar to the Sheeva.

Someone asked: Switching Wifi off is done using "uaputl bss_stop". It seems to really switch it off because of the difference in power consumption.
