        That sounds quite interesting. You wrote that you flashed it
        about 20
        times until you got it working. Have you had the same result
        than I
        do(inactive USB port and stable power led)?
        You said that the power LED is blinking faster. Maybe this is
        to the Deluxe, but that only happens if I restart the router
        switching power off. Also that's the only time I get something
        transferred (if I'm fast enough). Maybe here is the point. Maybe
        I don't
        need to power it off and just need to restart to upload the
        By the way would you send me your kernel version?
