I have 3 rigs that have been running ewbf for over a month without an issue. Ubuntu 16.04, with NVIDIA cards. My rigs are in another room away from my VDSL router, so I use a WI-FI router in bridge mode to avoid having to run cables through the house. But…
Yesterday I added a new rig (ASRock H111 BTC pro with 4x1070s and 4x1080s) but everything stops working when I start mining with it. The Wi-Fi router locks up so the other 3 rigs can’t mine and get ‘lost connection’ errors. So I played around with the new rig for a while, I tried mining with just 6 cards and it was stable. For a while… Then I got lock up again, so I turned it off, leaving the 3 old rigs to mine away while I slept.
Now when I look at the traffic graph I see this,
A massive spike in TX traffic for the time the new rig was on. It’s not a new download which might have a virus or trojan in it, I copied the EWBF miner from one of the other rigs, Why would I get such a big spike in TX traffic for that one rig?
