–-Please remove---This is Sparta!---confirmed Realtek card gone bad



  • Well, well, well…two days..wasted. This is what bad electricity does....Think I'm gonna rent that movie, 'Misery' tonight, right after I rub some more Rogain on my head!

    Far too vague to say anything useful from that. We'd need to know what the console was doing at the time, if what was in the logs, what the various status outputs were, etc.

    We've been putting it through its paces internally and haven't had any notable issues yet. It's on numerous virtual machines and bits of real hardware.



  • Probably using realtek or broadcom cards that needs tweaking of the setting to make is reasonably stable.  :o
    It has been very stable on 4 machine I run it on. (2 physical and 2 virtual).

  • Actually, yes…I am using realtek cards...

    There is a problem with these cards?

    Why does your picture look so strange? How exactly did you tweak that card?

    Somewhere I have a baggie of an old CPU that I modded with a sledge hammer. Over and over until it was dust. Now days I'm older and smarter… and would wear a respirator.  :)

    But - Will it blend? That is the question! (Realtek smoke - don't breathe this!!!)  8)

    @OP: Can you try with different NICs (preferably, non-Realtek ones)? Yeah, they are known to be… erm... POS.



  • You guys are sick..y'know that?!

    Real strange sense of humor this 'tweaking' and that being the case, I guess mine has been 'twerking' over the last several days….oh, don't worry, I'm gonna tweak that twerking with some wreal hard work!
