Updating linkstation firmware
Mostly putting up this content so I can find it again later, but it might help some folks that struggled to find an answer. page=unbrick_ls-wxl (Never know when a page might no longer be alive!
) Now, this post refers to a "Buffalo Linkstation Duo".
Unfortunately, now it would not want to boot anymore.
I tried resetting to factory defaults (hold FUNCTION while powering on, then release and press once), but to no avail.
NOTE: I performed these steps because I had placed new, unformatted drives in here.I suspect the original author may have because of the "Use DHCP Client" checkbox, and after the device rebooted, it may have received a new IP address, but I'm not 100% sure of this.It also may be because of the model differences between his Linkstation and my 421e.] At this point, I was able to go into my configuration and do the changes I needed to do.It was a bit more expensive, and currently loaded with three WD Red 3TB drives..completely worth it.I feel far safer with three drives (plus Crash Plan, of course) than I ever did with the Buffalo.
