    Hey there!

    Been looking around here for some time and there's tons of useful info. The thing is my NSLU2 came with 2.3R63. I know there was some lost time problem with early firmwares.

    I loose like 1/2 hour per day.
    If I shut if off, i'm back to jan 1, 1970.

    Internal battery problem? Is there one? SHould I RMA it?

    Reversion to 1-1-1970 when the power is off is what happens with a bad battery or poor battery contacts, but the loss of 30 minutes a day sounds like it could be some clock problem.

    Opening the unit to fix/replace a battery will void your warranty if they can tell it has been opened. So if it ends up that there is a clock problem with the motherboard or the clock chip, they could deny the replacement on the basis of a voided warranty.

    It is probably best to RMA it.

    Just letting you know that I RMA'ed it and the new one is perfect! No lost time! Plus I think I got a regular clocked one, because I get sustained 5.2M/s transfer rate.
