Hi Brett,

Thanks for the quick reply.
I've checked all my cables and they're all measuring perfectly.
BTW I would figure they'd be ok since when I'm running m0n0 1.11 the box
works perfectly.
Are your net4521 running at 100Mhz and with 64MB too?
I'm asking because I don't know if this box has been made with more RAM
Since it works fine on m0n0 1.11 I think I can rule out cables and hardware
Anyway, I'll give it another try in the next few days:
- I'll backup my 1.11 config file (just in case)
- I'll reset the box to factory defaults
- and I'll upgrade it to 1.2b7 again.
That means I'll do all my config from a fresh xml file.
If it turns out the same results I've had in the recent past, I won't know
what to do then.
Maybe there is a BIOS upgrade or something that could help.
I'll check on Soekris site, but since I don't have a null modem cable I
won't be able to upgrade it ASAP.
But thanks for your input on my problem.
