    Whether they acknowledge or not, "WE" already know this is a problem. I had two problems with my X6 box. Wifi kept failing to connect when I woke box from sleep and every time I plugged in my external HDD, the X6 would scan is obsessively for more than an hour.

    I posted these issues in the X6 forum, questioning WHY I should pay 2X the price of a generic box for an X6 when the generic had no such problems. Instead of addressing these concerns, my post was deleted!! I returned my box.

    You both say you have the X8-H Plus yet are posting in the X8-h/X8/X8Plus section. Flashing the wrong firmware will cause problems with wifi/bluetooth.
    Please flash the firmware for the X8-H Plus (in X8-H Plus section).

    Reconnect to WiFi network when you wake it up is a hit and miss gamble from my experience so far with the box.

    If the minix guys just create a script that reconnects on wakeup, problem solved? Need an update for this.

    This is the forum for X8-H, X8 and X8 Plus, not the X8-H Plus. Please read my post #45.

    Hello Ken, in my case wifi was working fine but then one day I noticed that it was not even turning ON, blue color, even if I tried to turn it ON it remains grey.... I suppose antenna is ok...what do you propose?

    Any update on this issue? The wifi keep dropping for no reason!

    Minix x8 on the latest firmware trying on a really good gaming router. Minix is the only one to disconnect... And no I can't wired my internet to minix

    No firmware update since the start of the issues?
