      The message is telling the truth :) So either your network cable is
      damaged, or the NSLU2 is not on the same network as your host (the
      upgrade protocol will not pass through firewalls or through routers
      (this means *through* a router, it passes freely between the various
      ports on the switch built into the typical home router/firewall
      appliance)) -- or your NSLU2 is not, in fact, in upgrade mode.

      How did you enter upgrade mode?

      Powered up with reset button depressed.

      The two machines are attached to different interconnected switches. This may be at the core of the problem and I will investigate this as soon as I get a chance.

      Thank you very much for the information. I'll update the list as soon as I get the chance to try both machines on the same switch.
