    I cannot access the NSLU with my web browser anymore.
    I can ping to the NSLU2 without any problems and I can even use the mapped HD connected to NSLU2.
    I switched off SP2's firewall and I tried to reset the NSLU2 (10 seconds!), but that didn't help.
    I even connected it directly to the PC (so without router), but no luck either.
    The setup utility recognizes the NSLU2
    maybe it is my port. I think I have changed my port from 80 to 1024, And even if I go to I still can´t connect . Can I somehow return to default, so that I can make it work again.

    IP address NSLU2
    DHCP no
    Automatic Confuguration yes
    IP address
    Subnet mask
    Standard gateway

    Once you successfully pressed the reset button for 10 secs., the IP of the NSLU2 would have been changed to, the factory default, and the PW will now be "admin". Try accessing it with that IP on port 80.

    Reset Button

    This button has 2 functions:

    * If the Network Storage Link's IP Address is lost, press and hold this button for 2 seconds. The IP Address will be set to the default value of and it will beep once to indicate the reset has occurred.
    * If the Network Storage Link's password is lost, press and hold this button for 10 seconds. The password will then be set to the default value of "admin", and the Network Storage Link will beep again.

    I have exactly the same problem. At the moment my NSLU2 is as good as the bricks in my garage.

    I have tried applying a number of different firmwares, including official and unslung ones to no avail. I still am unable to get onto the web admin of my NSLU2

    Any other ideas?

    Try turning off the nslu2 & then unplug all connected drives . Press the power button while pressing the reset button & continue to hold the reset button depressed for 10 sec .

    I had the exact same problem, and talking to Linksys reps didn't help at all. :) Being sort of desperate helped, though. After a pretty angry email message to Linksys i received what - to me at least - solved the problem:

    "Thank you for contacting Linksys Technical Support.

    Based from the description of your problem, you are just unable to access the web interface of the NSLU2. It is possible that the NSLU2 had failed already although it is continuously working. As a suggestion, try to upgrade the firmware of the NSLU2. You may download the firmware on our website at www.linksys.com/download. Since you cannot access the web interface to load the firmware, I suggest that you download a program that you can use in order to load the firmware on the NSLU2. The program is called TFTP.


    After you have downloaded the file then simply input the necessary settings on it. The server that it needs is the default IP address of the NSLU2 which is Password, refers to the default password for the NSLU2 and the file would be the .bin file or the firmware of the NSLU2. Once you have loaded the firmware successfully then you will need to reset the unit. To reset the NSLU2, push the reset button until you heard a beep on it. After it has been reset, configure the NSLU2 again and see whether you can now access the web interface.

    If the steps above did not work, I suggest that you follow the same steps recommended on the link below.

    Title: NSLU2 'Not Enough Free Space' Error When Upgrading Firmware

    Do not mind the title for the same steps apply in your problem."

    This solved the problem, even though I had to go for the "EraseAll" option (the 2nd one). Don't worry, it just erases the EEPROM and loads the new firmware into place.

    Hope this helps you guys!
