I recently upgraded a NSLU2-clone to 6.8 using upslug2. I understand
that upslug2 works basically the same way as the sercomm tool.
When you hold in the reset switch and get the unit into upgrade mode
(I assume that's what you meant) it moves it's IP to 192.168.0.1.
I had a second network adapter fitted so I configured that to the
192.168.0.*** subnet and used a crossover cable.
I'm not certain but I got the impression from the wiki that the
upgrade tools (sercomm/upslug/upslug2) ignore IP altogether and just
go by MAC address.
The switch built into a typical router should work OK. What you
can't do is cross the router Eg PC on LAN port, slug on WAN port
