      Ah, I didn't see that hint back then. I just went ahead and bought a
      PSU with the appropriate rating which set me back $15'ish.

      I'm 99% sure the hardware is ok - until I found the source of my
      problem I
      was trying to run my slug for extended periods of time with no adverse
      effects (except not working before the psu was replaced).

      I'm not sure the config tool will just any slug or only those in
      upgrade mode.
      As a non-windows person I'd suggest putting the slug in upgrade mode and
      trying upslug2 in discover mode. After trying that you can power-cycle
      slug and nothing will be changed. If that works my guess would be that
      network config on the slug got borked.

      Before you try all this you should give the default IP of
      a spin (if you haven't done so already).
