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
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.
