Can't get Tomato to "see" NSLU2

    just upgraded to Tomato 1.27 on a WRT54GS v2.0, erased NVRAM and reset all settings from scratch. When I try and connect an NSLU2 unit to the router it is not seen in the device list. The lights on the device indicate that it is connected OK, It just doesn't appear in the list.

    Any ideas what could be going on? Haven't been able to find much information on this issue.

    The standard setting for NSLU2 is a static IP, default value of (Linksys WRT firmwares do not have static dhcp), are you sure it is the correct IP range, with router set as its gateway? If you ping the device from the Tomato web interface successfully you will find it appears in the device list.

    thanks, i now have it showing up in my device list but I cannot access it through my regular browser. hmmm. I can ping it from the PC but cannot access the web interface. "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at"

    latest update: the NSLU2 shows up in the network folder and when double clicked prompts for a user and password, tried every combination I can think of with no luck. Still cannot access through the browser.

    What IP address does your PC have, if not 192.168.1.x may not be able to communicate.

    What firmware on the NSLU2? The Linksys website has reverted to 2005 2.3R63 but there was an update to 2.3R76 a couple of years ago. I use Unslung 6.10, based in part on 2.3R63 I believe, but can run lots of things using optware downloads. I have no idea about Windows 7 compatability.

    Hi, the PC is so is definitely on the same subnet. The NSLU2 has been in storage for at least three years so I'm sure the firmware would need an update (want to put Unslung on once I can get access to the unit)

    You can't use the web interface to upgrade unslung firmware (maybe first time only from Linksys web interface?), there's a tool to do it by directly accessing the bootloader I recall -


    but again I guess Windows 7 will be an unknown!

    Hi, used a port scanner to find out that the HTTP port on the slug was still set to an old high port number, could access and reset once I had this. I had assumed the hardware reset would have put this back to 80!

    Thanks for your help
