My new 2.4d board should be here on Monday. I have a pretty short (3’) USB cable already, I’ve ordered one of the Tripp Lite cables w/ chokes on it, though. I’ve been trying pretty short (5’) cables with chokes, and cables that have heavily braided shields.
Will I still need to get the chokes for my router power cable? I don’t have those now. I had read others didn’t really have much luck with them.
Or is the 2.4 board just going to fix an underlying issue so the rest of the solutions go away?
My disconnects come when powering-off the router. And I want to work on a project where I will need to do that a few times, so I need things to get stable.
I have a 2.2 board now. I tried the 2200uf capacitor and it didn’t really help at all. I swapped to a 1000uf and same thing. Maybe the 2.2 board is just old enough that the capacitor doesn’t help enough. Maybe the people experiencing success w/ the capacitor weren’t concerned with disconnects at spindle-off.
I called FedEx today and explained I had a package (the 2.4 board)that was shipped 3-day air but that it has been at the FedEx facility since last evening and it isn’t scheduled for delivery until Monday. I asked if there was a chance I could pickup the package at the facility today or tomorrow.
The answer is that the way they do things now, my package is in a container with other packages for Monday delivery, and they won’t even open the container until it is ready to be sorted for delivery.
Couldn’t argue with that. Too bad, though, I would have liked to try the new board over the weekend.
