You mean because of the USB-stuff? Had not thought about that. But yes, I must have a HD around somewhere with a Debian installation, can pop that into a machine tomorrow.jamesh wrote:Have you tried it on a desktop Linux box?
You are correct about the 7-port hub sometimes having two 4-port chips. Apparently that is an issue with some 7-port vs 4-port hubs from the same supplier (see the list of known working peripherals for details).poing wrote:Some USB ideas:
I do find a difference between the behaviour of 4- and 7-port hubs. The 4-port gives no trouble while with the 7-port I see strange things happening, like a USB stick unmounting and mounting again immediately or WiFI dongles not working in a specific port where a keyboard has no problems but working just fine in another port of the same hub.
This specific 7-port hub (Sitecom) is several years old and has been used in many configurations including to couple three WD hard drives to a single USB port of a Synology (Linux-based) Nas box. I've always regarded it as ultra-reliable.
As you see always 4- or 7-port hubs on the market it's not rocket science to guess that one USB input can be forked to 4 USB ports with some specific standard hardware. A 7-port hub then obviously has two of such pieces of hardware where one fork of the first 4 is used as input of the second four for a total of 2*4-1=7.
In this line of thinking something goes wrong with the Pi and the second piece of hardware in a 7-port hub giving three dependable USB ports and four funky ones.
(I'll put this in the USB redux thread as well)
What exactly do I type to get iw list output like that? I am having problems checking my card's supported interface modes.poing wrote:Yeah, that was it!
iw list says:
Supported interface modes:
* mesh point
iwlist very different to 'iw list' ?
