DHCP Failure
#15
Because the station was down again for some time (behaving strangely, rebooting, stalling), I finally allocated much needed attention to the issue of the ENC28J60 (after checking all the solder points on the board under the microscope and all seemed OK).

The issue (and the fix) was surprisingly mundane... as I noticed that ENC28J60 was not sitting exactly parallel to the discovery board (one side looked a little bit tilted relative to the socket)
In the end it was just an issue of pushing [ENC28J60 harder in its socket (it seems it got loose a little bit).

I noticed some people just hard soldered directly the ENC28J60 to the board (not soldering the provided socked and pushing the IC in). Regarding the unlikely case of this issue returning, is it preferable to solder the ENC28J60 directly to the board or should I look for a new socked? (I am quite confident the problem should not return as I applied more the sufficient force).
Stations: 960
