    I’m back again!

    During configuration, etc., I connected everything together via a network router/hub for convenience. Now that I have everything working OK (!) I want to connect the NSLU2 direct to the Soundbridge of course. This I have done using a crossover cable, but the Soundbridge keeps giving a “No DCHP Address” error. Can someone point me in the right direction again please

    Yes. The soundbridge is not assigned with an IP address, which is called DHCP. Normally, a router takes care of DHCP (assigning every connecting device with an IP address). But when you connect the soundbridge directly to the nslu2 with a crossover, none will get an IP.
    For the nslu2, you can setup your own IP, but I don’t think the soundbridge can do that.

    So I guess it just isn’t possible having the connected directly. The nearest solution is buying a cheap (wired) router, and placing that one between the nslu2 and the soundbridge.

    The SoundBridge can easily be set to have a fixed IP – mine do.

    See here…

    So, if the NSLU2 is at its default – 192.168.1.77 – you could set the SB to something like 192.168.1.100

    I have never tried this set up without a router though, so I cannot promise it will all work.

    You could install a DHCP server onto the slug
