1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: GuruPlug Server Plus Heat Problems on: January 04, 2011, 12:46:28 PM
I received a GuruPlug Server Plus (Noisy Edition) on December 6th, did an apt-get upgrade a couple days after, and still have stability issues. I tried disabling wifi and bluetooth and have had the same problems on Ethernet. Has anyone else had these issues with the box? Unfortunately I haven't had much time to tinker with the box, so I'm not sure if I should look into getting it replaced (if I can) of if there is anything else I can try out.

I'm not trying to burst anyone's bubble, but I ordered a GuruPlug Server Plus and received it a bit over a month ago. I bought it primarily for HTTPD and irssi. Unfortunately (even with the noisy fan), the box hasn't been doing very well on wifi 'or' Ethernet. When I SSH to it and start typing in IRC, my connection drops out quite a bit. This is one of the newer ones with a (very noisy) fan. Even when I'm at home the box would drop off the network randomly. Eventually after a couple weeks of usage, it started becoming unresponsive until I power cycled it. I tried fixing the issue by disabling bluetooth and wifi and using only Ethernet, but that didn't seem to help either.

I don't know if this is normal or if it's due to me doing an apt-get update; apt-get upgrade on the box (with the default repos). Possibly there is a bug in one of the upgraded packages? One note on the repos too - there are a couple factory IPs that should be removed.

I turned it off a couple weeks ago due to the frustration and noise.

Has anyone else had stability issues with the GuruPlug Server Plus (Noisy Edition)?
