How to Update the Firmware:

  • Connect the LinkStation properly and configure the LinkStation and a computer to run the updater on the same network subnet. The subnet masks should be the same and the first three numbers of the IP addresses should be the same. The last number of the IP addresses should be different. For example, if the IP address and subnet mask of the computer are " , " and the IP address and subnet mask of the LinkStation are " , " then the updater will _not_ work properly. In this case, reconfigure the LinkStation's IP address and subnet mask to " , ". Then they will be on the same subnet and the updater will work properly.
  • Close all applications. Also, stop or exit any firewall software.
  • Extract the downloaded file and run "LSUpdater.exe". When a LinkStation is detected, an update window will open.
  • Select the LinkStation to update if multiple LinkStation are connected.
  • Click "Update" and enter the LinkStation's admin password.
  • Click "OK".
  • Transferring and updating the firmware will start. Wait until it finishes. The info LED will blink during the update.
  • When the update is complete, a message will be displayed.
