Hi,

My Link Station Live (version 1) failed this week, I have ordered a new LS-CHL V2 as the first one lasted 3 years, not too bad for 24/7 use. But I have a query about the old one, I have taken it apart and had a look inside and it all seems rather simple. ARM CPU, standard drive etc... Is it feasible to install a new drive or an SSD / SATA to Flash convertor and run alternative firmware on it? The plan was to make it into a PPTP server for 2 or 3 people to get remote access to the network, so people can use SMB sharing with the new linkstation remotely rather than the web interface. How does this sound, and does anyone have any relatively basic instructions on how todo it. I have had a look around the Wiki, but all seems to require a working link station to re flash, this one is ok apart from the drive which is making a loud ticking noise at turn on. Is there a way to re flash / image without the original disk?

Any replies greatly appreciated.

Regards

Rob

After reading further I guess what I am asking is, can I plug in a USB disk or stick and do this... http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Rev ... om_scratch to revive the box and then break out of the normal firmware and install PPTP VPN using iPkg or can I replace the disk and do this and install VPN http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Rev ... om_scratch and if so does anyone have any tips on what disk or flash memory to use?
