The BPS for the Extreme is much larger, it will need a large amount of cells to be able to get a workable amount on playing time (charge once every 24 hours). We are working on 3 scenarios for this:

It is really unusual for an IP address to change on a straight reboot when there have been no other changes to the network or computer. It happens but it is rare. When you reboot to reset the card, XDMS should already have the correct IP address of the network card. Of course, if the card is...
I guess people have a lot of free time on their hands to spend modifying the bracket. Right now, the best bracket is no bracket. My system has been up a running for days following the removal of the bracket. That’s my solution until Emile updates the firmware.

I am sure Emile can do a much better job explaining it.

I assume we are all using the card with the switch so the basic conditions are the same. I also assume we all put the card in slot 2 where the old SPF card was.
