Hello All!

I have just recvied my NGW100 today an I love it!!! However it has now decided to stop accepting any command via the rs232 port. At first It worked just fine I could stop U-Boot, play around in busybox the world was good. Then BAM, it will only show the output nothing more. I have changed cables an pcs. Still nothing works. It still outputs to the serial port just fine:

At this point I can not enter any commands or even send data to the NGW via rs232. This is a big problum for me. Is the unit toast? Or is there something I am missing? The cables I have work fine with everything else I just tested them. I can telnet / ssh / samba / web / ftp to the box just fine. An it works great as a firewall. I just really need the rs232. I want to boot from a sd card an enable usb.

Any help would be great.

Thank you!
