OK, if I recall everything correctly, just
plugging in an
ordinary tranceiver in the back of the ss2 would
do the trick.
To enter the eeprom, follow these steps:
- turn on the power
- when the boot starts, press the "stop" and "a"
keys (L1 a).
- at the ">" prompt, type "n" for new command
( if the prompt anything else than ">" you
probably are in
the new mode already)
- type "printenv". This will show some variables
with their settings.
locate the one that is named something like
"carrier test" (I'm
taking this from memory and don't know the exact
- type "setenv <variable name> off"
- type reboot to reboot the box.
