Langleyo Xavier Posted August 25, 2012 Share Posted August 25, 2012 Hi, 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? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
