A Bit more info, Ive checked /var/log and there are no log entries after 1848 tonight.
It can still be put into "upgrade-mode" by holding the reset in after power down, and
its ip address is still 192.168.1.77.
But its not responding to anything over the network, I think I've managed to telnet to 192.168.0.1 9000,
but cant get any sense out of it.
