Hive fixed there ethernet problem

Hive (my blog) had an issue that the heating controller would only work on a Ethernet port direct to a router not via a switch to a router

example

While experimenting with cables recently i discovered that it would now work connected to a switch via  the router.

While this might sound  ‘so what’ at least it is a kind of progress,  they also crippled the unit by supplying a 100mb cable not that i doubt gigabytes of data would ever be sent via it  but who knows with the nsa and gchq (my blog) on the prowl.

I personally feel safer that the hive controller is on  another bit of equipment rather than plugged directly into a router which nost people probably do.

Anyhow tin foil remains in fashion here in the monkey house.  More recently i discovered that i  was also very trendy because of some plants that once again are in fashion.

So better start wearing tin foil hats.  I am stylish after all – more style guru tips tomorrow.
