    I have my NSLU2 release 2.3R63 set up with one 80GB FAT32 drive and one 250GB EXT3 drive.

    But the darn firmware keeps "dying" - The yellow trouble light comes on, and the disk1, disk2 lights are dark. I have to pull the power plug out then back in to reboot. It happens about once a day.

    Is this a question of firmware instability, or is it a hardware (CPU or memory) problem?

    Has anyone else seen this problem?

    That sounds more like a hardware problem than anything to do with firmware.

    The only thing I can think of other than a deffective unit or defective power brick is if the outlet it is plugged into has power fluctuations. Most likely you should talk to Linksys for an RMA.

    I have had my NSLU2 for several years without too many problems. When I upgraded the firmware to 2.3R63 I experienced the same behavior you describe. I also have experienced the Shares ~ problem described elsewhere. I rolled back to 2.3R29 and the problems went away. Now the only problem I have is the second drive has no information displayed on the main administration web page. it does however work fine.
