I have really been enjoying working with the PiAware SD on a Raspberry Pi 2. I live in a condo so I can’t run anything like an ethernet cable from our third floor balcony into the building…so I am using WIFI. For the most part everything has worked out well. I can SSH via PuTTY and piaware connects with flightaware and data results show up on MyADS-B. BUT…typically after a few hours operation either the WIFI connection breaks down or the RPi locks up. First SSH seems to get really slow then stops all together and then I notice that the server is no longer showing moving AC tracks (and then fails to reload from the browser) If I catch it in time while I still have SSH connection I can reboot and things are good…for awhile. If I don’t, I have to go outside to unplug the replug the system; not the recommended method to restart a RPi!
I have made no changes to the SD configuration other than expanding the memory allocation and setting up the WIFI.
I see several other posts that may be the same issue, so as a minimum this post can serve as additional feedback of a possible problem.
I had hoped to leave this system running 24/7 while I’m away for a few weeks but that may not be feasible with this issue. While I will continue to search the other posts for a recommended solution, I sure would appreciate any suggestions.
