That's... very bizarre. @_@

The fat PS2 will not shut down when the software controlling the DEV9-related hardware does not give the green light for a power-off (So if the IOP of the PS2 freezes - the PS2 cannot be switched off without holding the power button for quite some time).
Is your console modified? Are you using an original Sony Network Adaptor?
Whatever that was, the connection issue will probably get fixed when I make a new driver setup based on the existing (PS2SDK) SMAP driver.
Wow! 5.87MB/s (!)

I only modified the SMAP and protocol handling code to accommodate the much higher rates of the SMAP driver with DMA support - so I have no idea how efficient HDL Dump server v0.9.x actually is.
But I can say that an extra ~300KB/s might be gained with some tweaks.
