I bought an LS Live v1 several weeks ago, & everything has been running smooth up until about an hour ago when a 'helpful' 11 year old accidentally cycled the power to the unit :(

The LS Live powers up fine & shows no unusual flashing lights or beeps, but when I click on the network drive letter I'd mapped the share to I get a message which says
Quote:
An error occurred while connecting Z to \\Hs-dhgl8d1\share

Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use

This connection has not been restored


If try logging to the LS Live via the web interface, I get
Quote:
The connection was refused when attempting to contact 192.168.1.253


If I run the NAS Navigator software, it finds the LS Live & reports that
Quote:
EM Mode
Workgroup: UNKNOWN
IP Address: 192.168.1.253
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1


A quick look through the forum suggests that as it is in EM Mode, something has become corrupted during the inadvertent power cycle & the FW needs updating so my question before I rush in & make a bad situation worse - do I just need to run the standard v2.10 firmware updater I've downloaded from the Buffalo website? My Linux knowledge is at Ubuntu level so any non Windows based solution would have to be fairly Peter & Jane for me to follow it.

Thanks in advance

I switched the LS Live on tonight with the intention of working through the 40 steps sticky, & it immediately started beeping at me accompanied by 6 flashes of the red LED :(

I tried the TFTP server approach, & although the LS requested the 2 files during bootup, the red LED carried on flashing :( :(

I then tried TSUpdater after making both of the suggested changes to lsupdater.ini. Initially, I had forgotten to rename the 2 .img files within the unzipped firmware back to to .img (see step 5) & this caused TSUpdater to sit in a loop until i killed the process. Once I had renamed & rerun TSUpdater, everything worked like a charm :D (apart from the web interface defaulting to Japanese but that was easy enough to correct)
