Internet disappears every now and then

I have a strange problem, and am not sure how to troubleshoot to fix it. I am using Amahi 5 with Fedora 12. Basically everything works fine for me, most of the time, but every now and then wireless devices that say they are connected to the network are not able to actually connect through to the int...

Re: Amahi Energy Saver

I really like the idea of this app. I'm hesitant to try though - I assume that suspending the HDA also stops the DHCP server, which would mean that none of my devices could connect to the internet while the HDA is down. Since I have a VOIP phone, I'm guessing that if the HDA is suspended my phonelin...

Re: Setting up a headless server - a few lessons

Yes I did use that script. My TiVo is connected wirelessly and it does drop out every now and then but I think that's a TiVo problem not the HDA. Still working fine :)

Re: Setting up a headless server - a few lessons

I think it uses less power in the server if you're not running the terminal version. When you use VNC it still shows up as a full runlevel 5 session though.

Re: Setting up a headless server - a few lessons

Follow up - for those with a TiVo, I followed this tutorial (for Ubuntu - the only changes needed were apt-get to yum) and have pyTivo running on my HDA. I'm currently watching a movie that is transferring to the TiVo from my HDA seamlessly. Yet to see if the script to start pytivo as a service on s...

Setting up a headless server - a few lessons

I have just upgraded my home server from a very simple ubuntu server box (basically just a network share and printer drive) to a headless HDA. As pretty much a linux noob apart from the few things needed to set up the ubuntu server, I had some trouble and thought I'd share some of the things I worke...

Re: FILE ACCESS DENIED

I just set up a HDA and had a few teething issues so far, but its slowly coming together. I thought i'd post here though as this thread bizarrely helped me setting up amahitunes. I had copied a disk full of music from an NTFS disk to a new ext4 partition at /var/files/music, but none of it was showi...
