... once running it appears fine (apart when I updated time.timezone
from the setup program it timedout the update saying it had failed ...
but the changes had been made). However if I power it down (either via
switch or web page) it goes off, then pressing power button will back
power button light up and ethernet indicator about 50% of time however
it doesn't reboot. I have to pull and replace the power cable and
press power button again many times before it eventually shows the
yello activity light and reboots.
As its a new unit I only received 3 days ago I think I'm going to RMA
it and hopefully get at better behaved slug next time!
