Soon after updating the DreamPlug to 3.12-rc6, I noticed that the Ethernet connection kept dropping, even though the # route command still showed it as OK..
I found a patch for the problem, and it works – for me.. http://www.spinics.net/lists/arm-kernel/msg281285.html
Be aware…. this patch is still being tested, and may be changed before it is ‘officially’ released, for -rc7 (or – maybe – 3.12 final?)
