I have been playing in the bitcoin and litecoin mining for about 6 months now and decided to try out a couple block erupter blades.  The units arrived fast and the power wiring seemed quite easy.  I spun up a VM to host the stratum proxy and figured I would be good to go.  The blades came up and immediate started mining!  I hit about 2Ghash and then then stalled and slowly spin down until they reboot.  Once rebooted they do the same thing, right up to 2Ghash-ish and then fizzle down to a reboot.  I decided to move the proxy out of a VM and onto a physical PC.  Still same thing.  I move the blades into a different switch, same thing and then into the router directly, same thing.  I even switched up the proxy software to bfgminer, still no luck.  Same exactly symptoms.  What am I doing wrong?

No AV, no firewall and no settings on the switch ports.  I figured I must have bad blades to I bring them to my buddies house that has a similar setup.  We hook then onto his network, change the IP to work on this network and point to his proxy VM.  Boom!  10.9Ghash all day long.

It must be something in my environment and after troubleshooting all day, I am spent.  The only odd thing about my network is I use the "0" subnet (192.168.0.x) instead of "1".  Could that cause a problem?  It's hasn't for 10 years of running a "0" subnet at home instead of "1". 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
