I am a complete novice to this kind of setup.
I picked up the above model thinking I could just load the Linkstation Nav software on my computer and everything would run HunkyDorey......WRONG!!!!

I also picked up 2 x 1TB SATA Drives to to go in it.
How do I make these work in the LS.
I have no idea about THCP or TFTP as I'm not a programmer, I just want to have an accessible system for holding my Music , Video and be able to grab files when I'm out the house.

I am a fast learner and am not averse to trying new processes.

Please help if you are able to as I feel very frustrated that it wont work!!!

My setup is :
Broadband Internet
PC using Vista Home Premium
Laptop Using Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

I am at exactly the same spot as you were. Did you get your NAS to work properly ?

I bought my mine off eBay. It came without any software and I still haven't been able to download NAS Navigator from buffalo, to start it's configuration. Can you give me a jump start ?

Best regards,

António Pena

NAS Navigator will NOT help. It is a "click-dummy" convenience application
to avoid clicking in the file explorer to navigate to your shares.
It has nothing to do with recovery or configuration of the boxes.
Buffalo boxes are NOT designed (from a software point of view) to have no
preinstalled system on its disks.
Therefore the recovery process for a box with fresh disks is complicated and
no "click-dummy" tool is available to prevent the user to learn a lot about the
usage of TFTP, DHCP and bad software design/implementations by Buffalo.
Read about TFTP and DHCP in general, to understand what it is basically.
Then start to find your matching firmware, the latest TFTP package FOR YOUR
BOXTYP and follow one of the many available guides for recovery.
Because you learned a lot about TFTP and DHCP BEFORE following the guides,
it will be easy for you to adapt to your current environment, if the guide is for
another environment (like the Kirkwood line of boxes).

Please do not use private mail (PN/M) to ask questions. Use the proper forum instead. (me)
