Storage / Re: How to configure LS-CH1.0TL for gigabit transfer?
« Last post by stuffdone on January 17, 2019, 01:13:30 pm »
Just as a side note I ordered an HP mini desktop $20 on eBay and I have a new 1TB drive and RAM laying around.  When that and the CPU appear I will have a whopping $58 out of pocket and plan to build a Windows based file server simply because it will all be NTFS and not have to use SAMBA which I assume Linkstations use for file serving to a Windows environment. The box comes with a COA so and I have disks so no prob there.


I will install in my entertainment center since it has HDMI and use for web access on SmartTV and as file server.  No conflict since if I'm working on pc I'm not watching TV  etc.  In that case I will relegate this Linkstation as a system/file backup location.

I have a LS-CH1.0TL but shows up on router as only 100MB which is too slow

How do you know this is happening/ where do you see this?

Router config when I inspect devices connected to network by IP address.  My PC's also appear there but as 1GB while the Linkstation appears as 100MB.  I only considered this a reference point since the traffic to Linkstation does not pass through the router...at least it should not.

You said the NAS shows up "on the router" as 100Mb. Is the NAS connected to a switch or the router? How does the router know what the network connection of a device that isn't attached directly to it?
I assume the linkstation is looking at the router due to DNS which is actually disabled in favor of a static IP.

The linkstation is plugged directly into the switch not the router but since the router is also plugged into the same switch I have to assume that's why it appears there under its IP address. 

The router should not actually be having anything to do with the routing of traffic on LAN.

Given all devices have static IP's the only thing the router is really doing is providing connection to WAN and WiFi for my phones and smart tv etc.

most switches will show a different color on the connection LED between 1Gb and 100Mb, are you seeing that?

Two LED on each port. none change color. One green one yellow.  But all connections to active ports show the same green led.
I believe in the prior post I indicated I had downloaded firmware etc. Seems that does not apply to this switch. My confusion. The ProSafe PLUS in managed the ProSafe ( no plus ) is not managed therefore there are no settings, it is auto negotiated out of the box.

Since Google "improved" their captcha it makes me insane!  There are many other captcha options that 1) do not rely on your server connecting to Google's servers and 2) don't make your customers crazy.

I have been a web developer for 25+ years and as soon as i started getting complaints from my customers over this terrible Google captcha I removed and replace with an easier yet still effective captcha that is totally contained on my servers.

PLEASE get rid of this terrible captca !! Just let me do a simple math problem or something

Asking the obvious: can the switch handle 1000 mbps throughput?

Netgear GS116  gigabyte switch. It is an unmanaged switch so there are not logins or methods to change any settings. https://www.netgear.com/support/product/GS116E.aspx

I found a firmware download will see if switch is current in that regard. All other devices on that switch connect with impressive speed!  I did have one switch fail to connect to any 1gig device but the nice thing about this and Netgear is totally free lifetime replacement. I only pay postage to send to them and they will send replacement ahead of time so I dont have to go without.

Hi,

My LinkStation Duo LS-WX4.0TL/R1-EU has a drive that needs replacing.

Could someone provide a link to the appropriate replacement drive?

Thanks
