I keep seeing some people on here talking about NHOS being the most profitable software, but as it goes, everyone has an opinion based on their own experience. I have tried NHOS on my 6x 5700xt rig, and I had nothing but problems. Not the mining part, but elsewhere. Didn’t know if anyone has ran into the same issue or knows a fix, so here goes.
I used the NHOS flash tool to create the boot drive. I plugged it in, turned it on, and it’s off an running. About an hour later it’s done with the benchmarks and showing me hashrate and all that. Great! A couple hours later, I get a text from my wife (I was in my shed with my computer and mining equipment) saying the tv wasn’t working(streaming device).
I noticed the internet on my computer was also down. I turn everything off, run a new line to my shed, restart modem, router, switches, etc. plugged everything back in one at a time, starting with TVs, phones, switches, etc. everything was working. I get to the miner, and boom. Internet crashes again and I have to restart the entire network from modem out once again.
This time, I left the miner unplugged and gave it a few hours. Everything seemed to run great. Plugged it back in and it crashes yet again. Repeat steps above except I put my HiveOS drive back on and it’s all running smooth, and has been for over a week now.
So my question I guess is this… why the hell is NHOS crashing my network? Is there something I can do so it won’t? Should I bother with NHOS if HiveOS is doing well on nanopool?
My network looks like this…
Modem from Spectrum—> Unifi 5 port router —> Unifi Edgemax 8 port switch(for house) —> Unifi 24port switch(in shed)
I have two Unifi APs hooked up, one in the house and one in the shed. A couple of Firesticks, couple Xbox(wired) and the usual phones and tablets etc on WiFi. In my shed, I only have the AP, my gaming pc, miner and a test bench that are hooked into the network 24/7 and a few extra lines for the occasional “fix a friends computer” or whatever.
