1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: L3+ Firmware on: February 21, 2021, 12:49:20 AM
When I got my L3+ it had VNISH firmware installed with a Dev Fee, is it easy to reflash it with Blissz 1.2 No Fee? Is that even a good idea if it's working fine? I couldn't really find a simple tutorial anywhere and I really don't want to mess anything up.
I haven't used the VNISH firmware but as long as it doesn't lock out updates it's easy.
Go to system, upgrade, at the bottom flash new firmware, choose file then flash image.


Great, that's what I was hoping. I think I'm going to stick with the VNISH for now since it's working well, but it's good to know it's an option. Thanks!

What do you pay for power? At .12/ KWh those babies are pulling in just under 70 cents a day, probably better to err on the side of caution.

I'm really excited about preordering one of these, they look like a lot of fun! Thanks jstefanop.

Ok, so it sounds like I'd just be mining as usual and don't really have to worry about the node part of it. Thanks!

I had 3 questions if anyone can help:

1) Does it require a monitor and keyboard to work? I've always just controlled my Pi remotely from my laptop, I don't have either at home.

2) I'm mining with an L3+ undervolted to 660W from a Bitmain APW7 plugged into 110V. There's one pcie connector left over - could I use that to power this in eco mode? (If yes, here's another vote for an option without the PSU)

3) What's the benefit of mining a full node? I've only ever just minined to a pool, I don't really understand that aspect of this.

Thanks everyone Grin

If you're still interested in mining Doge you could use a pool like ProHashing and take your payout in Doge.

Just curious, would it be possible to make a version with a built-in power supply? Seems like that would make it even more user-friendly but obviously I don't know anything about manufacturing consumer electronics.

As long as you are happy...we are happy for you Smiley

Thanks miner29, I can't get the smile off my face. I had almost completely given up before you replied to the thread.

You guys, that worked! I really can't thank you all enough, I'm so excited to get mining again!

sweet!!

the weird router number was making the trouble

I'm so irrationally excited to be losing money mining LTC again! Thanks again to everyone that helped today, after four years of dreaming of one I finally have my own L3+ Grin

You have no gateway and no dns specified (fields are empty)

Can you run the IPCONFIG?  and share the ip and gateway so we can double check you settings.


Then copy the gateway from ipconfig to l3+.
Set dns to 8.8.8.8

Also share the netmask...you show 255.255.255.0. but i wonder if this should be 255.255.0.0 based on your ip....ipconfig from a machine on the network will answer this...just copy what ipconfig shows to the miners netmask.


yeah he has that weird ip

.68.132

I'm not sure why my router picks from that range of IPs, but that's the default. It's definitely the right IP though.



I'm on a Mac, not sure how to find the gateway, any ideas?

better here is a screen shot of proper l3+



Thanks everyone, here's what I got:

Sounds like a default gateway, subnet or DNS problem then.  Make sure all those network settings are correct.

What am I looking for with those settings? Sorry, I'm not very experienced with routers, everything is just set to the defaults (and is working fine for everything else).
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Help! Can't get my new L3+ to mine! on: January 23, 2021, 07:16:55 PM
Did you see Bitmain has new firmware for it from 2019...

https://service.bitmain.com/support/download?product=AntMiner%20L3%2B

There are also alternative optimzations from Hive Os and others for this miner.  I am looking to see if Bitmain locks your SSH ability with that firmware.  So read up before doing it...but may be as simple as old firmware. 

I should have mentioned this earlier, but the guy I bought it from had first flashed it to latest VNISH firmware.

Maybe check the pool website for the current settings port....etc may have changed.
Maybe provide the settings you are using so we can see if there is something incorrect.

Good idea! Let me see if I can attach some screenshots for my litecoinpool settings at least and the Kernal Log.





The pool you are trying to mine too does not exist.  At least not that i can find anywhere....

Try any of these :

https://miningpoolstats.stream/litecoin


It's #7 on the list on that link you posted. I also tried #5 and #13.

Ack missed it...tried going to their web url resolved to litecoin.org....so yeah pool is there...address matches..but isnt connecting pe your log pic..it states pool connection failed.  

Can you login to the pool on the webpage?  

Your config looks correct as long as the user id matches (case sensative).  Can you ping the miner on the local network?  did you check the dns settings (8.8.8.8 is a solid dns from google). 

Yeah, I can login to the pool webpages fine, just no hashing is going on when I do. I can also connect to the miner on my network without issue and change settings, reboot, etc. It's just for some reason the miner can't connect to any of the pools.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Help! Can't get my new L3+ to mine! on: January 23, 2021, 06:37:31 PM
I'm about ready to give up, for the life of me I can't figure out how to get my new L3+ to start mining. I think I've got everything entered correctly - I'm using the same setting I used years back mining LTC successfully with a few Moonlanders. I've tried other pools (litecoinpool, Prohashing, Antpool), turning off all the antivirus on my router (TP-Link Deco mesh router), and even plugging the ethernet cable directly into the modem and bypassing the router completely. Unfortunately whatever I try I get the error: local0.notice cgminer: Pool connection FAILED. Check INTERNET, POOL URL or WORKER

Can anyone help? Thanks guys!
