Ubiquiti NanoStation Loco M2

It would appear that one of the two Ubiquiti NanoStation Loco M2’s that I purchased has suffered a fault.

I reset it to factory defaults and upon it restarting I noticed that I could only get a ping of about 4-5 packets every 60 or so seconds. It never stayed up long enough for me to get back onto the web interface to configure it again.

Attempted a recovery using tftp etc and got it to accept the firmware via tftp, at which point it reboots post the loading. Once again goes into the same condition. I’ve now submitted it for RMA and will set about sending it back.

Not really my luck with hardware sometimes.

Well I know I said I was going to get a SSD, but when it was all said and done I decided not too. As my machine is already fast enough when I play bf3. So thought I’d get something else.

I nearly got a hdhomerun when they first hit australia 3 years or more ago, but held off for other reasons, but I thought, I will get one of these instead. So told the wife to buy me one for my Birthday.

Intend on using it with Mythtv, and EyeTV on mac. It will be good to use Mythtv again, as I use to use it with Twinhan tuners years ago and wrote some wiki pages on it at Mythtv. One of those pages is here. Can’t seem to find the other one I wrote years ago.

In addition, I am also going to buy a Ubiquiti Unfi 802.11n internal access point, as those things look awesome and the features look great too. Will post my thoughts on it once I have it configured, really interested in the guest stuff it can do. Not to mention the controller/management software available.
