Re: [nslu2-general] Unable to access default NSLU2 web interface after firmware reflash
- I have the exact same problem as yours!!! I called Linksys support twice and
they failed to help at all. One of them blamed me for not upgrading the
firmware properly, and ask "why are you upgrading it anyway??"
Don't bother to contact Linksys support. I recently purchased WRT54GC and
again their support failed miserabily. I will not purchase another Linksys
product, EVER. PERIOD.
I spent three hours last night trying to get help. It was even worse before
using the SerComm utility - The Linksys Setup Utility was not able to find
NSLU2 at all. Now that the Setup Utility can find the box, my plan is to
look for R29 firmware to downgrade my box. If anyone knows where I can find
a copy, please post the link here!
atrab12, please also keep me posted if you're making any progress!

But maybe i have some tips:
1) You see that there is a unknown device on your network.
Please use a network sniffer (e.g. http://wireshark.org/)
to which packets are on the network
2) Use a simple cross cable to connect the slug and your
3) Use a port scanner to check if there are open ports
4) Try to reflash again and make sure that it really

Running unslung 6.8 on a 1 gig usb flash disk. Wish to change this to
an external laptop harddrive. There is nothing of any consequence on
the 1 gig flash disk...just me playing with various optware packages
and trying different things so it is not necessary to keep. Can I just
reflash my unit with the unslung firmware and then unsling to new drive
or is there a another way I need to do this "cross-grade"? Many thanks
for your time.
- Yep. The cleanest way is to reflash, and start from scratch. Note that the
USB stick will be formatted as a valid root filesystem, so if you ever plug
it into the NSLU2 after the "cross-grade" (for example, if you wish to
recover some data), you will have "multiple native drives" on the device --
see the wiki for cautionary statement on this situation. Best to avoid it
altogether if you can by reformatting the stick to FAT, as the multiple
drives can be confusing, and when both contain valid root filesystems for
Unslung, well, it can get *really* confusing!
