      Roland You're a star!

      The original PSU was 5v/2a so I have replaced it with the same and we're back in business. I wish I hadn't read the articles telling me to flash it again when I got an amber light! Oh well, time to set it up all over again!

      Thanks for your help :D

      Q.

I used it mainly just to fileshare and to access videos stored on it from my xbox via ushare. All was going well until I tried to expand on this and use it as a torrent client too by installing Transmission. Transmission never worked properly and in the course of trying to fix it with users from their forums they asked me to make several changes that being a linux noob i didn't really understand.

It started recognising neither drive and i began getting a "samba information not found" error when i tried to access the web interface. i then began getting amber status LED when it booted. having done extensive searching through nslu2-linux and having found a few fixes I eventually decided to re-flash the machine back to stock linksys firmware using sercomm which supposedly completed successfully but having done so the device will still not boot to the point of having a steady green status LED. When I boot I get a second or two of a flashing green LED and then a solid amber LED for five to six minutes. Every five to six minutes I will then again get a second or two of a flashing green LED and then back to solid amber. It just repeats.

Nor can I go about unslinging it again to get a disk to edit again as it will not boot far enough for me to be able to even ping the default 192.168.1.77 ip address while on the same subnet.
