Rock64 ethernet problems
#1
Hi

I have a Rock64 board 4GB version and just cannot get a reliable ethernet connection.

I have flashed the SPI and I am booting from a USB 3.0 HDD (1TB) connected to a powered USB 3 hub.  

The same problem occurs with ayufan linux, Armbian, Nextcloudpi and DietPi; with DietPi being the most stable to date.

While I can get to the login screen and login when connected directly to a keyboard and HDMI, when I connect an ethernet cable or SSH into the machine the whole system slows and becomes unresponsive.

The ethernet lights flash intermittently and often go blank for 20-30 seconds at a time.

I have tried limiting the ethernet connection to 100MB, cutting the blue and brown cables, two different routers and the problem is always the same.

As I intend to use this as a Nextcloud server obviously reliable ethernet is key.  Is this a common problem and how can I fix it before returning the board.
