Yes thats probably the problem as i can enter this repo on other pc but not on sheevaplug.i didnt change anything on sheeva so thats strange as it was working before
Maybe that repro has now problems with the sheeva-part of the repro and not with the part of the repro which would be used for normal pcs? As a alternativ Check you could try to change your DNS? (8.8.8.8 for Google?)

Did you try a alternativ repro?

Please post some of your Error-Messages or the whole "Boot-process" so that we can find out which problems your plug has.

nobody knows what can I do?
You could try to use another USB-cable, because not every mini-usb-cable does work properly because of the
poor connection to the usb-port. You could also tryto put the sheeva on her side to ensure the connector does insert from
the upper to the lowerin the usb-mini-port.

Is the USB recognized? Did you use another USB-Port on your Laptop/computer? On a other USB-Port Windows will install an additional virtual com-Port with another Number (COM1: -> COM2:)

No chance :-) they did not got a x86 CPU.

please take a look at "details" on this page....then have a look where it says 79$...
at the details page I did only see:
US Model -           Price $149.00 (USD)    and
US Model + JTAG - Price $179.00 (USD)

BTW: I would like to see/hear about: "We have a small robust product which draws under 5 watts of power"

But, maybe if you've got something to sell to the public, you buy 100 Plugs and one JTAG port. 

but then the device and the cables/connectors should be more stable.
On the Guruplug (plus) I wouldnt connect/disconnect the cables to much times...it seems to be only
a one time connect for developers.

I think the main problem is reliability:
- the mechanical contacts are not as reliable as soldering
- I have read here many people complaining about faulty, slow or just incompatible SD-cards, but I can't remember anyone complaining about faulty internal flash
I personally did got problems with a (Micro)SD Slot - and this one will not be changed/switched very often.

I read many onboard flash problems, but with the Seagate Dockstar.
There is a special programm needed to go around the errors in the flash chip which has "bad sectors"/cells
23  General Category / General Discussion / Re: DreamPlug on: January 26, 2011, 01:40:23 AM
true it is hard to be sure , But I THINK it`s going to be like the guruplug
it may even be the same JTAG board for the guruplug
I couldnt see the same Ports as on the Guruplug (for JTAG/RS232)...
and my opinion would be that a "Dream Plug" has to be like the Sheevaplug - with a included JTAG/RS232-USB-Port
24  General Category / General Discussion / Re: DreamPlug on: January 25, 2011, 03:50:09 AM
Looks nice. But I don't like the absence of internal NAND flash. Internal Micro-SD card is not quite the same.
Whats the problem with internal MicroSD in your opinion?
From my point of view its seems to be better...
- you could swap it if it get faulty
- you could reprogram it externally it the content goes bad (no need for a jtag)
- you could upgrade(?) the size

Has anybody heard of one? Any release date? I've exchanged a few emails with Global Scale and they've provided me with the attached info.

And the big question is: Will it run quite cool on Gigabit-Ethernet usage?
The detachable power-supply is a fine idea :-)
It would be cool getting a base-stand like on the PogoPlug if the original power-supply is detached- for a even better airflow?
I also like to get back the SD-Support against the MicroSD :-) 
26  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Sheevaplug powers off on its own on: January 24, 2011, 08:18:37 AM
Do I just remove the connector from the router ps and the connector from the plug ps and connect the two red wires to one of the router ps wires and the two black ones to the other one?
By the way I don't see anything or smell anything that looks burnt. But then the ps hasn't failed completely.
Yes, you could connect the red wired to plus and the black wires to black/ground.
The power-supply you did remove from your sheeva seems to a the newer improved
version which shouldnt smell/burn....but your one did fail....the older ones did fail after
a they burn and smell.
27  General Category / Success stories / How about a Bluetooth serial console for Dockstar? on: January 18, 2011, 01:56:17 AM
If you search on eBay for "Bluetooth ttl" you will find low priced Modules (2 pieces around 15-18EUR)
which convert TTL-RS232 3.3V to Bluetooth.
The modules can be configured as Master or Slave and the Baudrate could be set.
So its possible to create a Bluetooth-Serial-Console for and possible inside a Dockstar.

If the Modul is configured you have only to connect 4 wires (3.3V, GND, TX and RX)

A picture of the module can be found as attachment

+ 2x GBit Lan
sorry only 1x GBit Lan
29  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / New small dockstar a.k.a. Synology USB Station 2 on: January 13, 2011, 06:01:58 AM
but at a "high" price of 89EUR
http://www.synology.com/deu/products/USBStation2/index.php

800Mhz Marvel 6180 - http://www.marvell.com/products/processors/embedded/kirkwood/88F6180-003_ver1.pdf
+ 128MB Ram
+ 2x USB
+ 2x GBit Lan
+ no HDD
+ nice Case but round Top-Case
+ supports music, Internet radio stations, and iPod playback with the optional speakers
+ An optional direction-free Synology Remote allows you to freely enjoy your music

High price because the Seagate Freeagent GoFlex Home with 1TB Harddisc sell for about 114EUR

Almost one year later there is still no sign of life of Plug Computer 3.0. What happened? Was it born dead from the start?
How about the future of plug computing in 2011?
How about Plug Computer 2.0 for 2011? The GuruPlug Plus wasnt a 2.0....mostly only a 1 3/8 :-)
Nice try, but a retry would be nice.... my GuruPlug Plug is waiting offline beside my Sheevaplug and Dockstar
for a new case.
