I have created a kiosk style dashboard using the potato for work and it has worked flawlessly for the past 2 months. Suddenly, a few days ago, the network connection stopped working. I troubleshot the problem and decided to start from scratch and reinstall everything which didn’t take too long. I tested it in my office and it worked as intended so I brought it back to the location needed and it didn’t work. Seeing that, I assumed it had to be a network issue and checked the port it was on on the switch and the port worked with another device. After that I had the assumption that it must be the wire, although this was a fresh cable I installed 2 months ago, but I tested the wire and it worked too.
Out in location there is a yellow connection light on the ethernet port of the potato but no green activity light. Today I came back in the office and grabbed the connectionless potato and brought it back to my office. When I powered it up it showed the orange and the green would flicker once every 10 seconds or so and in the GUI it would show internet coming in for a second then going out. Then, after waiting 10 minutes, the connection fully started working again. I really have no clue now what the problem can be, please help.
Kiosk randomly stopped having network connection
Fresh install seemed to fix the problem in my office
Once back out in location it stopped again instantly
Checked ethernet cable + switch port and both work with other devices
Back in office with no changes, ethernet was spotty then began working entirely
If not the cable or switch, what could possibly be causing this problem? Especially after no change and it was working previously for 2 months.
