Arch Linux ARM on PogoPlug Won't Boot

I finally got Arch working last night and today the device lost power for a little while. When it came back, it wouldn't boot correctly so I booted up a Ubuntu live CD and ran fsck until it came back clean.
I plugged it back into the Pogoplug and rebooted to no avail. I also tried to boot the Pogoplug without the HDD attached, SSH into that interface, plug the drive in, and then do a warm reboot.
In an attempt to troubleshoot the situation, I have tried to reformat and reinstall Arch on the hard drive to no avail. I also tried to put Arch on an 8GB flash drive and it too isn't booting.
When trying to SSH into the new Arch install Terminal either returns "no route to host," "host is down," or "connection timed out."
I'm sorry if this is really simple, I am still relatively new to Terminal.
Thanks in advance.

Hi: Welcome to Linux Questions!

today the device lost power for a little while
All of the sudden you had a power failure?

By Pogoplug is that the device you mean that you use for your cloud storage?

I am not running Arch Linux (and I am not good with servers) but I will assist you as best I can until a more experienced member can chime in.

This article says for bootup issues see troubleshooting ALARM boot up-
