I use ftp on the Slug to connect to the Topfield via the second USB port. I will try to use puppy for this purpose and see if that also hungs up after the 2G limit has been reached.

      Unslung is just the Linkys firmware opened up -- so the kernel, by
      definition, is the same version provided by Linksys. So we really have
      no choice about fixing that limit with Unslung. SlugOS is the answer to
      that need.
