Thank you very much Pynther !!!
almost one year ago i suddenly found my Link Station LS-WXL in EM mode.
At that time i could not fix the Problem, therefore i decided to save the data
from the NAS to a normal Harddrive first.
(I spend quite some time to rescue the data using a Linux LiveCD Ubuntu 10.4 because i am not very expert in things like that).
Yesterday i tryed again to fix the Problem and I started with updating the Firmware to 1.68.
The update went successful but i could not log in anymore because i forgot the Password.
I followed the instruction on the Buffalo homepage to initialize the Link Station to ist factory defaults.
I tried several times the power switch / function button procedure but even when the LED were
flashing correctly during the procedure the standard Login "admin" / "password" didn't work.
I found the net full with threads about this problem but none of them were helpful.
I was very close to give up again when i found your post here in this forum.
It worked perfectly and i would like to thank for your help ...
You just made my day
