    My NSLU2 requires me to push the power button to boot it after every power failure.

    Does it exist a setting which makes it autoboot on powerup?
    thanks for any info on this issue

    best regards

    As fas as I know, this is not possible. On the internet I once saw a modification of the wiring, that shoud do the trick, allthough they said it was not 100% sure it would work. You had to use the soldering iron to do this (would void your warranty).
    Maybe the guys (or girls) from Linksys will fix this with a new firmware. Wouldn't help me much, because my usb hdisk also don't power up after losing mains...

    Powerup autoboot

    OK, does somebody know about other firmware distros for this box which has the above mentioned functionality?

    I don't think it's possible to set from firmware. The hardware mod is probably the only way.

    After reading that mod, I'd say just buy a UPS. :D
