Omega 2(+) Not starting
I received my omega 2+ and tried to turn it on.
I'm using an atx-pc to get 3,3V.
The led turns on, then after 20seconds it turns off, and I waited minutes and none SSID appeared.
Does anyone have any idea about this problem?

Please google a bit more ... i read several request about how to power the omega without a dock.
The main idea is that you use 5v with a voltage regulator to 3.3v.

Seems they dont want developers to be open minded and use this for low cost applications. last night I used a variable power supply to power this up.
Min operation voltage : 2.6v @ 250ma
Max operation voltage : 3.6 @ 250ma
Seems it does not start if < 250 ma or similar. Funny thing is voltage around > 3.8V it works for cuple of seconds and restarts. Clever marketing I would say, they want there Power Dock to sold to us. Which it will not be smallest and cheapest Linux server.
Also you can power it up using 3V3 zenor with 20Ohms resistor for 5V/250ma USB input like Computer or a cheap mobile charger.

Double post from @Gayan-Priyanatha My reply here:
Boards that connect to the network, either via WiFi or Ethernet require higher power than microcontrollers to run correctly. Just get a benchtop power supply or a regulator in a TO-220 package to fiddle with it.
After some tries I could turn it on using a celular battery (1500mah).
The problem isn't about search in Google, i know how to turn on without a dock.
The stange thing is an atx-pc source power, with 1,5A (measured in multimeter) doesn't work well.
Next week i will try this on, i hope its work
This board worked (Omega is on for more than 1 hour and no problem), but using the both source together :S (There are two regulators)
