    A few weeks ago my Unslung NSLU2 stopt working, couldn't reset and or access it anymore. After trying a lot I decided to reflash with the Sercomm utility.
    The upgrade starts normal, but after 22% of flashing it stops everytime. I tried using severel firmwares, several ip adresses of the computer, etc. Is my NSLU2 broken?

    Any ideas/help would be great!

    There's been a few reports of the 5V 2A PSU failing. There's also a battery on the board - not too sure what it does - the real-time clock doesn't seem to work on my unslung slug. Careful you don't break the case and the battery holder - like I did when checking it!

    the psu is ok, i checked. So it could be the battery inside?

    I don't think the battery has anything to do with flashing. It powers the real-time clock when the NSLU2 is powered off or unplugged from the power supply. Most (or all) of the settings stored on the NSLU2 are in NVRAM and not in a CMOS memory that must be powered at all times.

    Could it be te powersupply then? The powersupply even powers my wap54g, which actually needs 2.5A, instead of 2A like the NSLU2.
