Hi I noticed more than half of the problems with this NAS are rooted in problems with the amount of physical RAM.
Is it possible to piggyback RAM chips in the NAS from an old RAM module? Is it possible to replace/upgrade the existing RAM chip?
These questions led me on a search of how RAM was upgraded in the old days of computers - by "piggybacking". Piggybacking was the practice of stacking RAM chips on top of each other in order to get a faster machine. This was done in days before SIMM slots even existed in consumer-level computers. I wonder if this could this be done on the MBWE2? I know it is difficult to remove and replace those RAM chips, but what if one was simply piggybacked?
According to the CPU documentation up to 64 MB RAM can be used (even though only 32 is available).
excerpt from "FEATURES":
"8 or 16-bit DDR SDRAM controller supporting
up to 64Mbytes of SDRAM"

Searching this wiki I found the following links with no conclusive answers about which versions are upgrade-able:
So, my question again to the gurus and hardware hackers: Is it possible to piggyback RAM chips in the NAS from an old RAM module?
Let's discuss. Thanks!
