N900 Non-Central + 1.06.18 or 1.05.12 Firmware + Heavy EXT USB HDD = Lockup as stated in subject line
Yes I know this firmware was pulled. I have downgraded back to 1.05.12
This is for sure another bug in the firmware. FTP use with same files was OK, when using mapped drive through win7 it locked up everytime. I am still experiencing the same issues on the older firmware as well. It happens when copying large files like HD movies 1.0GB - 4.7GB file size. If i copy more than one at a time and not give it a break it locks up solid.
When locked up this happens… No remote access through http, no wifi, no wired, no internet, no hdd, locked up solid. Requires a hard boot by cycling power
For all of you heat haters out there this is not heat related. I have qty 2 12VDC 40mm fans pushing air from underneath directly into bottom of router. The entire router is room temp with zero hot spots. This issue is related to the router itself, not heat. USB 2.0 EXT HDD to wired lan to EXT USB in win7 machine.
The ironic issue is that the EXT HDD is a WD HDD Black 2.5" drive.
I am growing tired of this router and its teething issues. I travel and depend on uptime for my house network, this router has less than 30 more days before it is tossed. Never again. Come on WD
