I have been having a play with my Yun and seem to be having an issue with the HttpClient sketch which once running seems to crach after about 3 cycles (sometimes 4 or 5). Basically this seem to happen even when running on my laptop:- windoz7 and main system:Xp connecting to the Yun via USB and monitoring the Yun via the IDE serial monitor (and third party 'Clear terminal' port monitoring softwear).
I have not modified the sketch in any way. It runs, for about 3 cycles, pauses, and then prints the same rubbish, again and again.
Is there a server limit on the file http://arduino.cc/asciilogo.txt ? I'd hate to do a fault finding exercise only to find there is a limit..
I'm also having some problems with USB uploading and the board dropping in and out of the USB system, but I'm going to do more research before deciding that is a problem, but I'll mention it here incase this is relivent.
Oh, yes the Yun is linked to the PC via USB, but it is connected to the internet wireless. Also a strange one, turn on PC, for 20min. Plug in YUN and leave for 20min (the sketch should be running). start IDE and open serial monitor, skech runs for about 5 cycles and crashes. Close serial monitor leave 10 min and reopen, jiberishs on the monitor repeated every 5 sec. reclose monitor and reopen... repeating jibberish...
Even more tests. I have tried using Cat5 connection only and disabled my wire router and it still crashes. Now its being an unreliable pain in the arse to reactivate the wi-fi.
Has anone else manange to let the sketch run for 5 min or more?
