I saw those instructions but I couldn't use them so I went looking for other ways to reset the z-stick. When I first got the stick I joined one switch to it as a test and just plugged it into the core, the wizard launched and life was good. I then joined all other switches to the stick and linuxmce just added them via the wizard. I then reinstalled my core ( a couple weeks later) and I've been having trouble ever since. I pressed the reset button and held it to reset the stick, when lmce started detecting devices I plugged it in, the wizard launched then 30 seconds later the router reloaded before I could finish configuring everything else. That's all it does, as soon as I plug in the stick(inside or outside of the setup) the wizard starts then the router reloads, over and over and over and over, until finally the core becomes none responsive to everything except the shutdown command from either the power switch or ssh. The machine doesn't stay stable long enough for me to follow the wiki directions. I thought it was the installation so I dl the latest snapshot, same thing. I download the new latest snapshot, same thing. I'm out of dvds now so I did the Internet install, same thing. I've tried hardware reset, software reset with this program I found, and I've tried putting the stick in sis/suc mode using the program I found. Lmce hangs when I try to use it to communicate with the stick. I don't know what else to do.
Is there a way to stop the wizard or Lmce from detecting or reacting to the stick being plugged in? That may buy me some time to follow the wiki completely. Maybe the core would actually send the reset command to the stick if it's not to busy reloading the router every 40 seconds...IDK.
