Lately I've been having issues keeping all my miners going reliably. After a variable period of time-sometimes a week, sometimes a few hours-of mining, several workers on each of my rigs at my main location will bomb out. Guiminer reports the issue as "connection problems." Oftentimes one or more workers will continue to mine successfully on the affected rigs.

The rigs themselves are still connected to the internet, and are accessed remotely via logmein each time this issue occurs. I've only been able to resolve the issue by switching pools thus far. Temps are in the mid 70s for all affected cards, so I'm assuming that isn't an issue. What the heck is my problem?

What OS / miners are your rigs running?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and a mixture of HD 6950s, 6970s, and 5770s. 2 machines are running 4 6970s each, 1 is running 4 6950s, and another 5 are running 3 6950s and 1 5770 each. All have the same intermittent connectivity issue.

backing off on your overclock a bit (25-50mhz) may help some, if they're wireless can you try connecting them via wired ethernet?

They're all wired cat6e connections, and I finally gave up running them OC'd at all. Oddly enough I didn't have any connection problems when I was overclocking, so maybe that's the answer? Haha.

It's usually not a problem on your end, but the pool's.
Do you have lots of connections going to the same pool?
I had about 12 miners all pointing to the same pool once and 2 of them always had this same issue, after I split them among 2 pools problem went away.

You can not roll a BitCoin, but you can rollback some. Cheesy
