I don't know if anyone can help with this.


I connect my DM8000 to my home WiFi network using the DM8000 internal WiFi.


If I then stream from the DM8000 to a laptop (also connected by WiFi to my network) using VLC, the DM8000 will completely lock up after a few minutes of streamng video and the only way to fix is a power on/off.


Instead, if I connect the DM8000 to my home network using a CAT5 cable to the hub, instead of the internal WiFi, I can stream to my Laptop (still on WiFi) with no problems for hours and hours.


I can even connect the DM8000 with a CAT5 cable to a wireless repeater (that has an Ethernet port) that is connected wirelessly to my hub and this also works ok.


I think there might be a problem with the DM8000 WiFi software driver?


Anyone else seen this?


It isn't a problem as I can use the CAT5 cable to WiFi repeater but it would be nice to just use the WiFi only.


Any ideas welcome.

Didn't even know that the DM8000 had internal wifi.


I'd say, start with some debugging. Connect your cable too, and make sure it has an IP. When the box locks up again, can you still ping the box / access the box via ssh/telnet using the cable IP?


If so, login, issue the command "dmesg", and post the last 40-50 lines here.
