marshmnwhat is it with USB (wired) network dongles? they just seem to stop working after a period of time18:01
marshmnI've gone through about 3 in the last year18:01
marshmnanyone have a recommended brand?18:01
zmoylan-piis it perhaps something you are doing to them, tugging the cable, putting pressure on the usb connection like the weight of the cable?18:03
marshmnI thought that - but one of them has been sat in a cupboard where it's connected and doesn't move at all18:03
marshmnit might be the case with one of them that gets carried in my bag18:04
zmoylan-pithat would eliminate those ideas, unless it's an outlier and failed for some other random reason...18:04
marshmnthe cables on them don't feel especially flexible, so that sort of thing is always a worry18:04
marshmnbut I've not really found any that feel better quality than others TBH18:05
zmoylan-pijust that if i have 1 item fail, it's me, 2 and it's suspicious and 3.... something wacky is happening18:05

marshmndaftykins: yeah, the first one that broke was one of those :(18:06
marshmnthe one that seems to still be working the longest after I've bought it is a U-Green one18:07
marshmnmaybe I'll get another of those18:07
marshmnjust wondered what other people's experiences are18:07
zmoylan-pimaybe try some strain relief seperate from the gizmo to hold the cables weight and keep it steady?18:07
daftykinsopen one up to see if something simple is happening like the connector detaching?18:07
marshmnyeah, both ideas worth trying18:08
marshmnwonder how easy they are to get apart :)18:08
zmoylan-piyou have 3 to experiment on... :-P18:08
marshmnindeed :)18:09
