I currently have an 8-card Nvidia rig running the latest version of hiveos. I have a single ethernet cable going from my nighthawk router/modem to an 8-port switch. My 8-card rig and 3 other gaming PCs are plugged into that switch. It all ran perfectly for about a month. Then I started randomly losing internet connection for all the PCs while all the wifi worked perfectly. After much troubleshooting including replacing all the cables and even getting a new 8-port unmanaged switch, I was able to determine the hiveos mining rig was somehow causing the issue.
When I unplug the hiveos rig’s ethernet, everything else regains connection instantly.
I have setting static IPs for just the hiveos rig, and then for all the PCs connected via ethernet. I reinstalled drivers, and followed instructions from a post here to install the latest network driver on the hiveos machine.
I turned off DHCP on my router, and then couldn’t access my router’s home page XD so I factory reset it.
** The factory reset fixed the problem for three full days, but now it’s back. **
This problem is really hard to troubleshoot because I can lose connection in 20 seconds or up to 6 hours after plugging in the hiveos machine. It can happen while I’m doing things or randomly in the middle of the night with no activity. When it goes out, it never comes back on its own, and the wifi is just fine. All 4 machines are mining btw. 3 PCs on windows, all 4 machines using T-rex if that matters.
Any ideas? Halp pls T_T Sorry for the long post, trying to be thorough.
