    I found that my ethernet connection suddenly disappeared on my Byte Plus. Upon further experimentation with multiple network cables and situations, I found that the culprit was inserting a micro SD card. Whenever an SD card is present, the ethernet port stops working altogether (even the indicator lights on the back stop working). If I boot up with a card in the slot, no ethernet. If I boot up without a card, I have wired networking functionality…until I insert an SD card, at which point I lose my ethernet connectivity again.

    It appears that an SD card does not prevent WiFi from working, but the ethernet port is entirely disabled. Is this a known problem? Or a hardware or firmware issue with my device? I just got this device two days ago (a used unit, purchased directly from Azulle), so it is possible I have a faulty unit…but I’ve seen a couple of other posts about ethernet problems and SD card problems, so I wonder if there is a firmware (or hardware) issue.
