Thank you Fernando, the settings you suggested worked and I was able to reflash my NSLU2.
After the reflash with the Linksys firmware I still see the “Unlsung” logo on the web interface. Is this correct? Is there more I need to do to revert back to an off-the-shelf NSLU2?

You need to get your network connection running in Bridged mode, since
upslug2 needs to be on the same network segment as the slug. I can
think of two things to check why your bridged connection is not
- If you have more than one network interface on your host, such as a
wired interface and a wireless one, VMWare may have selected the wrong
one for bridging. I am not familiar with VMWare Player interface, but
in VMWare Server you have an option called "Virtual Network Settings"
in the Host menu, that brings you a config window for the virtual
interfaces created for the guests. Check if you can set the binding
for VMnet0 to the correct physical interface in your machine.
- When you use bridged networking, VMWare will create a virtual MAC
address for the guest VM, and this address must be accepted in your
network as if you had connected another computer to it. This can be a
problem if your network validates MAC addresses somehow. In my office
I had to ask the network support guy to enable an additional MAC
address in my switch port. What kind of network setup do you have
(home, office, wired, wi-fi)?
