7699Re: Bricked NSLU2 ?
- Feb 2, 2009The power supply has probably died but the NSLU2 is OK. You could connect a voltmeter
to the ends to see what is there. I would be careful about the replacement power supply
though. The NSLU2 feeds the power supply voltage directly to the USB ports (so it can drive
USB hard drives I expect) so the voltage is important. I would suggest you get a similar
regulated 5V supply. The ones that come with USB hubs are a good choice but you would
have to change the connector.
