The worst part is that sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.
That's the problem I have with my 2+'s wired up to AMS1117's. They will normally run for 24 to 36 hours and then fail. Don't know if they get too hot, run out of memory or receive a power spike. When I reboot them sometimes they boot up and sometimes they don't. If they don't bootup after a few tries I leave them for perhaps 30 to 60 minutes and generally they do bootup. Bit of a mystery.
My Omega 2+ had a similar problem in that it would not reboot after it had been running a while (10 or 15 minutes was enough). After sitting unpowered for a while, it would happily boot again and run without apparent issue.
Guessing that there was an intermittent thermally sensitive connection somewhere on the board that affected start up, I reflowed the solder on all exposed connections with an SMD hot air tool and the problem seems to have gone away. So with a sample set of one, it looks like a manufacturing defect in my case.
My Omega 2 (not plus) didn't have this particular issue.
Both had problems during boot when running from inadequate power. The symptom of that problem is running normally through startup, as monitored on the serial port, to the point where wifi was first brought up, about 18-20 seconds into the boot sequence. At that point they would reset and repeat this process indefinitely.
Well, After purchasing an external active antenna it looks like there is possibly an issue with the antenna on the gps board.
the active antenna is currently sitting on my desk in the middle of our office (nearest window 15 feet away) and it is now seeing 11 satellites on the u-blox test software. Now to try this on the omega itself.
It's been a few hours, I can bring it up, no forever blinking. This has happened before. A couple of times I powered with a bench supply and saw current going from 200 ma to 0 and 2 seconds back to 200. This happened over and over. Let it sit for a while, it went to normal. Anyway, if I leave it on and not touch anything, it behaves. All the parameters have to be right. Now, router still open. PuTTY usually never fails.
Which one? I tried the 2nd so far. The 2 others are None and WEP. Think that's when continuous blinking started. I could try again. Can you tell me what you show on your various screens? Where you located? I'm in LA, USA
I put back WPA2-PSK[AES]. Did a cold re-start. Amber started blinking, but will not stop. Stumped!
