Is there a way to tell if my NSLU2 is clocked at 266MHz out of the box?

    Without flashing to third party firmware, is there a way to tell if my NSLU2 is clocked at 266MHz out of the box? Perhaps a glimpse of hint through the version of the stock firmware? Newer firmware = 266MHz out of the box?

    Thanks!

    Can you find a manufactured date on the unit? Ones made after about May of 2006 seem to be clocked at 266 MHz. That is a very approximate switchover date too and maybe plus or minus a few months.

    Unfortunately, there is no manufacture date on the unit or on the box it comes in.

    Have you looked at the top of this page?: http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/OverClockTheSlug That is where I got the 5/2006 date. It seems that they have stickers with the manufacturing date on their units.

    I just looked at my very old, originally underclocked slug and there was no manufactured sticker date on it, nor is there any on the box. So maybe the presence of a manufactured sticker says that it is a fully clocked unit.

    As an absolutely last resort you can always open yours up and look at the resistors; however, if you aren't careful, you might leave "tampering" evidence that Linksys could later use to deny any RMA if you have need of such.

    Do you have Telnet access to your NSLU2?

    If so, Telnet into your NSLU2 and type:

    Code:
    cat < /proc/cpuinfo
    The BogoMIPS figure indicates how fast your slug is ;-)
