Guys, I need you help with the weirdest problem:

Since yesterday my miners have started to disappear from my local network all of a sudden and that happens too often now.

All my miners are connected to a TP-Link TL-SF1008D 8-Port 10/100Mbps Unmanaged Desktop Switch, which is then connected to my router Technicolor TG582n (given by ISP):



When the problems happens the blinking light at the back of the router, where the switch is connected has gone off, yet the all 7 lights (6 miners + incoming cable) are ON on the switch.

Until yesterday I wasn't sure what is the problem, but now I know: when I unplug the switch from the router and plug it back in = they appear back in the network.

Additionally this morning my own PC reported network conflict: some other machine on the network got its IP too, which never happened.
+ I have setup the DHCP table manually. The 101 to 106 are the miners. Before it said state USED and now it is free, but they are hashing.





Just clicked Apply in each miner Networking Tab and the FREE changed to USED in the DHCP table:



Do you have any experience with bad switches? Any ideas what is causing the issue?

Thank you.


I've had many non managed switches go bad on me. Several in just the last year. No reason or anything, they just stopped working. And I'll just end up replacing them with new ones and everything is back to normal. I have a stack of Netgear hubs all from warranty repair sitting here. I won't use any "fixed" or refurb stuff on my network. Are there any firmware updates for your router?

There usually is, but I haven't checked.
But I am fairly certain the problem was related to the DHCP pool table. It's gone now and if it happens again I know what to do.

Btw anyone know what is the current limit of the Fan headers on the boards. I would assume connecting 2-3 fans on the same header shouldn't be a problem?

Neptune Second Batch
41
Neptune is our first 20nm product and will be shipping in Q2 of 2014. This order is for the second batch which will leave about one month after the first batch
The stats and performance that we can release today are
Minimum 3000GH/s of hashing speed that 3TH Over 5 times the speed of our first Jupiter release
   (we reserve the right to increase this as we get closer to shipment)
A 30% reduction in watts per GH
Based on the existing Jupiter design (See photo, however this may change as development progresses)
Shipment begins in Q2 of 2014
Bitcoins first ever 20nm miner brought to you form the company who shipped the first 28nm bitcoin miner
Limited batch of 1200 units,
Payment for this product is bitcoins and bank transfer only.
$ 9,995.00


So KNC announces they will sell Jupiters again and tell us to have our coin ready, THEN they start pre-orders for Neptune again BEFORE we hear anything about the Jupiters. They even said "So keep some coins handy as we expect them to go quick" in their newsletter. So they were basically pumping people to hold coin for their Neptune, not the Jupiter. That's pretty messed up. Why can't companies just come out and say what they mean?

Out of 6 nov jupiters, I now have 3 dead moduals, and a completely dead Jupiter. RMA is pretty fast... but Ill be down almost $1k in shipping by the time this is done. Seriously thinking about just chaging back the dead one... Not worth it after 2 weeks dead then another 3 weeks in RMA.

They make you pay for shipping?

$100 per module back to sweden for each, then they want me to ship the entire Jupiter back that wont work. I don't even have RMA numbers for the last module yet.

That's strange, they gave me a paid-for shipping label sent with the RMA number when I got mine. Let us know if they do the same when you get your RMA #.

I have the RMA numbers for 1 module, and the entire Jupiter. Neither was provided with a label, and both asked me to pay for it and mark the customs down.

Even now, a multi-million dollar company with profits and large bank accounts can't pay for shipping on faulty hardware? So basically you'll just lose money this year.

Can anybody link step-by-step instructions how to upgrade cgminer to the latest version on Jupiters?

Chill a few about to share the latest firmware with the latest CGMiner binary 3.9.0. compiled within as well as a couple of bug fixes.

Hold tight a few minutes...

Note: The problems addressed have been observed to manifest largely with the Eligius pool, however we can't say for definite it is exclusively associated with that pool, but the settings within Eligius previously compounded the issue. So expect to see a drop in HW error rate.

I will drop it in this thread, but don't currently have access to the site to update the main page, no doubt Sam will do that when he has an opportunity, but I have a flight to catch. V and I just want you to have this to play with sooner, than later...

In any case as always keep us abreast of what you observe and constructive feedback is always welcome! Tongue

The shipping cost to us will need to be paid by customer and we will pay for the shipping cost back. Please declare value as 1000 US dollar."

I'm back! Briefly. Who could resist these developments?  Grin

I refer everyone to my post yesterday.

I've been proven right before and I will be again. I'm confident, based on past performance and the attitude of greed and feeling no obligations towards their customers that is now plainly obvious, that this time round KNC's burning of it's customers is going to be epic. They get to spend your money, so it will be you that gets burned.

All the clues are their, the cracks in the foundation.

How correct was I? Just one day later it comes out what total scum knc are.

I said knc were another sleazy asic company and they prove it beyond doubt today. This is their t&c's:

Quote
Any return cost will be charged to the Purchaser, unless the return has been subject to the prior approval of KnCMiner.

They have approved/authorised the return but insist bobsag pays and commit a criminal offence by lying about how much it costs - to save them money! That's just plain GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDD. And total criminality. And shows no sense of obligation to their customers who funded them with millions. It's disgusting behaviour, from a disgusting company.

And I see shillorama's posted here a number of times since bob's post and doesn't even respond, pretends nothing happened. What a bunch of fucking criminal crooks knc are turning out to be.

And now they are hocking their $13 garbage for $10k? https://www.kncminer.com/products/neptune-second-batch
$ 9,995.00

You paid ... $13k... now it's 10k, because no one wants garbage from a bunch of crooks that will be totally useless when it arrives (faulty) in 6 months time  Grin

KNC - they are such a "good" and "reliable" company Cry

Can't wait for their January sale, where they will sell bobsag's broken $1000 machine to you for $6000!

Good luck to all you loyal knc customers who ordered a knobtune. You really are going to need it.

Too all you who with the sense NOT to order again from the money lovin' criminals - happy hashing in 2014!


I'm real confused on the price. Difficulty has gone up, BTC has dropped and they are listing the Neptune at the same price as when they first listed it? Some of us got screwed when they lowered the price on the Saturn's in the beginning because they had to. This same situation should apply here also?

The knc developers and myself differ in how we like to represent hashrate. I prefer to not include hardware errors since they're not really meaningful hashes. Remember you don't get paid for hardware errors and you'll have to deduct them to figure out if your device's hashrate is higher or lower (or simply compare WU instead).

Somewhere I saw a reference for all the codes on the CGMiner screen.

Would you be kind enough to point us to a reference?

I will be optimistic and say that Neptune will be 5TH/s.
For 0.10BTC a day we need a difficulty of 25 billion.
25 billion difficulty = 179PH/s = 35800 Neptunes.

With batches of 1200 that seems highly unlikely even with all the competition around.

I wouldn't count on Neptunes being 5 TH/s. Cooling that beast would be crazy.

I wouldn't count on HashFast not shipping. And Cointerra not shipping. And Black Arrow not shipping. And BitMine not shipping. And BFL not ship...wait, you can count on BFL not shipping.

If hashing power is increased too much some people won't even be able to turn them on because of power consumption.

They will mine fewer BTC since they will be delivered later -- so they are worth less... that's the theory anyway....

It's like people are slowly beginning to have their eyes opened to what's been said for awhile now.

While I think it would be nice for the KNC gear to be priced more competitively, there is still the chance they will do this when they open up Jupiter orders next week.

Afterall it costs them about $1k to make these boxes, there's room in there to budge. They don't have a 'reason' to budge, but maybe they will.

This is for October boxes ONLY: http://bit.ly/1dyucXS

This is for November boxes ONLY: http://bit.ly/1d40PP0

Any changelog?
What's new?

Mainly the reduced hardware errors on Eligius and the inclusion of the latest release of CGMiner. TBH it's not a complete update, we wanted to give you somerthing by xmas. V isn't happy with labeling it as a complete release, but it's almost 8pm (not 7pm, damned machine clock, argh!!), as he is still to tackle something before he's entirely happy with calling it an update. It doesn't have the additional tuning kit mentioned prior. Mainly Nov boxes will see the greatest benefit.

In any case as always constructive feedback appreciated, enjoy! Happy Hols...ho ho ho!!

Thanks Orama very thoughtful and nice xmas present to do a little tinkering with.  I'll update it now and report back after 12 hours of running it.

Merry Christmas to you, KNC team and all here on bitcointalk.
Cheers to all  Smiley

Quick update......
with new firmware kncminer-0.99.1-tune_October.bin in my October machine significant improvement, and looks with more time will be even better.

just a few minutes running and hash rate up 10GH/s and HW errors down only 1%..  will look better with more time
I report back in few hours, but looking great to begin with.

Thanks again
Cheers


results in after 22 hours running new October firmware.

hash rate has increased about approx 5GH/s from 548GH/s to 553GH/s
HW errors have also increased from 2.5% to 3.8%  (not big deal, see below)

but the biggest difference is the 12 hour hash rate at eligius has gone up from 540GH/s to 552.5GH/s and seems to reflect (more accurately) the average hash rate reported in cgminer

another noticeable difference is with the flush work, after detecting a new block doesn't seem to affect the hash rate as apposed to 0.95 firmware that I was running previously when flush work ran after new block was detected the rate dropped to nearly half.

another difference compared to 0.95 firmware is the power consumption increased from 570 watts to just over 650 watts (for me 0.95 firmware was most efficient than later firmwares)

Merry Christmas to all  Smiley
Cheers

Are we sure there isn't a placebo affect going on here with this unofficial firmware? I read one dude had to go back to the older version cause it was worse. Then others say hash rate is up. Maybe just because of the reboot? I'm using .99 firmware and rock steady on 561Gh/sec. It hasn't moved from there since I changed my power supply to the Corsair RM1000. I use to use the RM850, but that didn't have 4 PCI-E connections. The RM1000 has I think 6 of them. And of course it is silent. I'd love to keep mining but this damn bitcoin crash is driving me nuts. I do call it a crash since it was over $1000 not too long ago. Getting tired of seeing $650, either go up or down damn it!

Crash  Huh

When I bought my miners the price was $150 and I made plans to ROI in 6 months.
$1000 was too good to be true. $600 is fu**ing awesome. $300 would be great.

is your hash rate you state in cgminer or at pool (over 12 hours running) or both?
