A slight setback...

A project log for Pi Zero PC by Bay Networks (The Pikelet)

I acquired a great little EN104 Bay Networks 'Netgear Hub'. I decided to re-purpose it to house a little Pi Zer0.

So I had another slight setback. Did the final install to set things into place. Turned the pi on and tried to boot. Burning smell...

Turn off, rip everything out of the case to find what happened. Find a enc28j60 module that smells odd. Clearly the issue, not sure the cause. The case is too cramped, so I decide to dump the ethernet module and just rely on wifi. I have a console in via uart, so I don't really need wired ethernet as i have wireless throughout my house.
