An Incompatible Browser Or a Browser With Excessive Cache

Use different browsers to test as a solution; we suggest using Firefox or Google Chrome. If clearing the cache doesn’t work, try using a different computer or laptop.

The Password is Wrong

When you modify the default password, this happens.

Solution: enter the correct password or reset the miner and use default password “root”.

Conflict MAC Address

The two miners have identical MAC addresses, which results in identical IP addresses being obtained. Alternating between the two miners will be abnormal.

Solution: Attempt to upgrade the miner to the most recent firmware version, which S9i can do by using firmware version fix_mac.tar.gz. to fix the duplicate MAC issue.

Conflict IP Address

While the other miner has the same IP address configured using static methods, one miner uses DHCP to obtain a dynamic IP address, which conflicts with the other miner’s configuration.

To find a new IP address, use DHCP.

Network Anomaly

The answer is to ping the miner’s IP address. If it can’t be pinged, check and make sure:

  • the router configuration is normal;
  • the DHCP server is enabled;
  • assignable IP addresses in the DHCP address pool is set in a proper range;
  • the computer network port, the miner’s network port, and the switch network port indicator are normal.

Restarting the computer and the network hardware is an option. Check the Ethernet cable, the switch port, the switch or router, and all of the above.

The Control Board Has An Issue

Resetting the control board is the answer. use the recovery of the program using an SD card; c. replace with a good known one.
