Well you guys are my last hope of help before this goes in the bin!
I have one of the subject receiver to stream music from my PC to my amp over Airplay
It is really good for what I paid for it - £9.00 - but it has one major drawback
It looses its Wifi connection without fail every 7 days
I have seen an Indestructable on how to change the name but no luck with searches on how to either disable the DHCP or just to extend its licence or even just give it a static.
I am not a Linux guy but know my way around a command prompt so if there are any instructions anyone has I am pretty sure I could follow them.
The guy that changed the name used ‘putty’ to do it - but I am unsure of where to start with the network part of it
Here is the basic overview of it
Model Atheros A900
Local Time Thu Apr 21 15:15:27 2016
Uptime 7h 37m 9s
Load Average 0.23, 0.11, 0.07
I forgot to add that to enable the WiFi you have to plug an ethernet cable into it - browse to the ip address for that - then find the ‘bridge’ config gui, find the router and then put the passkey into it.
Also stamped onto the bottom of the box is IP: 10.10.1.1 and as you know that is outside of the ip range on a BT Homehub (192.168.1.254 etc)
Are you using a Linux PC to try access the the A900 device or Windows ?
