I scratched out too soon. The network connection port light on switch still is on for a sec or 2 and actually pulses like xfr'ing data then completely goes out for several seconds, another very short activity burst then connection gone again, repeat. Both Firefox and Chrome respond very slowly and often throw a page not found fault.

ever find the reason for the intermittency?

I'll fire up one of the 2 I got in today to check if this is endemic...
Meanwhile, putting the 2x 841's I took offline for the power slot back on until this is figured out.



Is not endemic.
Fired up one of the A10's that came in today and network connections work fine, both Chrome and Firefox respond quickly.
This miner is running version 19072902_b5ff440_c2a3a66 so I'll check the version number on the flaky one tomorrow.

I do see that the insulating grommets around the openings in the case for power are different style and color. On the flaky miner they are narrow and white nylon. The connection pads are slightly recessed below the edges of the grommet so when the cable lugs are tightened down the nylon grommet is being squeezed pretty tightly.  On both the miners that came today the grommets are black nylon and have tabs covering the area under where the lugs will rest, also the connection pads are flush with the grommet so it is not being compressed.

Wonder if those differences are production batch/version related?

1st miner received (with flaky network), note the thin white grommets. I added the orange tape to prevent possible shorts.



that thin grommet results in VERY little clearance between the power lugs and case, ergo the tape I added



Later versions with much safer grommet providing tabs between the power lugs and case

That is covered by others earlier on in the thread if one bothers to read back a bit...
Right now I'm busy with other things like getting the 1st batch one to play nice with my router.

Alright busy man... let us know when you have time to post some actual. Wondering if it actually takes 2089. That would be a game changer but highly skeptical.

As the OP who ran numbers and has read every post in this thread, him saying to read previous posts is suggested by me as well.

Back to the 1st A10 I got in that would not keep a stable network connection...
Was going to try and flash it to different FW but....
1) is same version as the other 2 A10's, and
2) It fired up just fine today and so far after several hours it's stable. No dropouts whatsoever and holding at 31+THs on the GUI in Normal mode.

Go fig....
Whatcha wanna bet that it barfs when I move it from my test bench to upstairs to replace 2 of the uc/uv'd 841's....

mine are still stable after 2 weeks. I think I got ones like yours with the trouble . As I needed to use some padding to prevent shorts.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

One of the only issues I had with it was in turbo mode some of the PSU's didn't have the best time and gave over current warnings and shut down.

Another was during the update fms would say update failed while the miner itself took the update.
