@IceKohl This is way off topic.
I'm not a network expert by any means, it's just that when using Linux and BSD one often has to write the subnet mask in various forms. Here's a simple calculator for specifying a network, http://jodies.de/ipcalc?host=192.168.0.1&mask1=18&mask2=
For instance, a /24 provides 254 hosts, a /16 gives 65534 hosts and a /8 a whole 16777214 hosts.
More uncommon values are /30 which only allow 2 ips.
Back on topic,
The best guess is that the miner in question is operating on a different subnet mask and can't find the router or dns. Changing the ip configuration of the miner would allow to specify the ip range of the miner, and direct it to the router/gateway on the network.
In order to connect to the miner initially, one would need to change the ip-settings of another computer to be able to connect to the miner, eg change the ip settings from 192.168.0.50 to 192.168.1.50, if we believe the miner is currently on the 192.168.1.X subnet.Please note the value of the second last numbers, they changed from 0 to 1.
If successfully connected to the miners gui settings, look around and change the ip to 192.168.0.50 or something, see if it picks up the change and can connect, otherwise restart the miner and you should be good to go. last step is to change back the ip settings of the computer and that's all there is to it
@c4 haha, cool.. I couldn't remember which way to go with the / ... I was like damnit... is that 16 or 32.... better leave it out. lol
@chrishaefner Unless you had a airflow restriction in that vent or it was unusually long... say longer than 10' I would think it would have been actually better than exhausting to ambient.
@IceKohl What you are writing is correct, most likely the miner is in a different subnet than the standard home network of 192.168.0.0/16
@xavier0510 try what @IceKohl wrote and see if you can find your miner. It's probably on 192.168.1.x or something like that. if you can't figure it out, nmap is the default ip scanning tool out there. Probably overkill if there are other more user friendly alternatives, but once you know the subnet, just change the ip in the miner settings to whatever your network uses.
So I was using a dryer vent to keep the heat away from the miner. Has anyone used these? Think I could have over heated it with this?
@c4 I've had s5s, s7s and an s9. I believe I've struggled with everyone of them. But it's has mostly been software issues I've had to figure out. I don't think it's been the miners fault, just my lack of computer skills as I figure out how to make them work. (Minus burning up a board trying to mine in a small closet).
There really might be nothing wrong with the miner, I just don't know how to fix what I did. We will find out.
@IceKohl Bitmain hash a diagram that shows how to hook up multiple PSUS. However I found out if you only have 110v outlets, Bitmain doesn't have a psu for you to use. They build a 110v for their R4, but recommend you don't use it for the S9. But the S9 is 1600 watts so I use two psu's on separate circuits.
When the miner starts it kicks the fan on full speed then it rpms down and slowly kicks up as it starts hashing. The miner acts that way but my hash rate never gets past zero.
I did a hard reset on it several times and tested all the boards separately to see if I get a different results. Unfortunately I haven't seen anything different then the miner dashboard showing the fan speed and nothing else.
