Pineapple Connection-Disconnection Problems

Recommended Posts


May be a no-brainer to most but for the more nooby or less-RFI-aware among us:

My pineapple mk4 was randomly connecting and disconnecting via eth0. It took a little tracking down

but eventually I found out the cause was external electromagnetic interference from my other laptop.

I replaced the stock spool-type cable with a shielded one and now its rock solid. Just be aware of this

in areas with lots of cabling, radios or computers. These leads act like antennas for frequencies you

dont necessarily want to recieve, reducing signal to noise ratio.

Someone may want to come up with some homebrew retrofit shielding or screening hacks for the hardware mebbe?
