    ITEM #

    There is another size of plug designed for 2.1mm connectors I recall for Linksys pap2 or similar.

    http://www.linksys.co.uk/acatalog/5_Volt_Power_Supplies.html

    I have modified one with fine tip soldering iron to fit onto 2.5mm in the past...

    The nslu2 psu is identical to to that used on the fonera, if that's any help.

    Help STILL NEEDED Please. With powertip size.

    I am still confused. I need to know the size of the pin in the NSLU2 unit. I thought I ordered a 2.5mm plug from the address above. It is too small though to fit the pin.

    IS the pin of the NSLU2 a 3mm plug? Can I order a 2.5mm to 3mm converter such as:

    such as:

    ## 30-347 2.5mm x 5.5 DC JACK to 3.0mm DC PLUG ??

    PLEASE HELP.
