      Have you confirmed that the part numbers on the power supply you
      have received match those from the auction. Is the supplied power
      supply by any chance got a part number of 5V25A 5521 rather than
      5V25A 5525?

      Can you provide all the details from the label on the received power
      supply, so we can do a search on it's specs direct from the
      manufacturer (R&F). All the NSLU2's I've been in contact with (about
      8 or 9) have all been 2.5mm Inside Diameter power plugs.
