Re: NSLU2 dropping off of network
- Yeah I've got some bizarre network problems too with the nslu2. I have
a wireless internet router/hub. I then have a switch attached to that
hub. I put the NSLU2 on either the switch or on the hub, and my WinXP
computers just randomly lose network connectivity. Then when they
reboot they can't aquire an IP address via DHCP. If I power down the
NSLU2, and then do an ipconfig /renew they then get the address.
Basically this unit seems to be able to single handedly take down my
network. If I power it up, downloads will hault, internet games will
disconnect and computers fail to get their IP's, and the world
crumbles. Did anyone ever hear back from Linksys on this?
