Roadshow works well for me with my plipbox - for a while.. until I do certain things.. eg using ibrowse, it’ll work for 10, 15 minutes say, then the network will freeze and I can’t reinitialise it until I turn off (and on) both the Amiga and the plipbox’s power supply..
Another thing that makes it immediately freeze is quitting AmiTradeCenter.. it’ll be working great and immediately stop.
I can tell that’s when it happens as I‘be been running a ping window to see if there’s any reason to the oddness. Instantly freezes when I quit ATC.. Seems odd?
I’ve already enabled NOBURST on the plipbox so it can’t be that.. I really don’t know if this is a plipbox or a roadshow issue.
Sorry I’m not super techy when it comes to Shell stuff so any advise might need to assume I’m a moron who has no idea what he’s doing. (eg, I had real trouble figuring out what the heck the plipbox documentation is talking about in the settings section) Thanks in advance!
Oops, important info:
A1200, ACA1233n, Plipbox (0.6) OS18.104.22.168
Ooh, it seems I can disconnect roadshow (using roadie) turn off the external power on the plipbox.. turn it back on again, and reconnect in roadie, and it’ll work again for a while.. Odd. It’s a lot more manageable if I don’t have to keep turning the Amiga off/on again at least.
Trying to troubleshoot by installing other tcp stacks and Miami works great without the constant network drops..
I don’t regret buying roadshow as it’s at least under active development, but I do wonder what’s going on with it.. At least I know I don’t have a faulty plipbox now.
