Storage / Re: TFTP MODE E06: Lost boot image
« Last post by drifting on July 22, 2019, 08:09:56 am »
I know this thread is as old as the hills, but to be honest I am heartbroken that my lovely old NAS's disks have given up the ghost.
Have in the past recovered the the boot image, but sadly no longer have the tftp program and more importantly the rom images to upload.
Downloaded the latest firmware 1.72, which is not a lot of good if you cannot even connect to it without the boot image.
Anyone have the TFTP program and correct image for this NAS?

Mine is an TS-XEL/R5

Regards Drift.
Wireless / Anyone here have experience with TP-link routers?
« Last post by JainJude on July 22, 2019, 06:41:49 am »
Ok so i was referred to this brand routers because of their firmware. Essentially what im trying to do is create a guest network with limited bandwidth. I was told tp links firmware has an option to do this specifically. Ive tried QoS on my current netgear router but i dont believe it works properly/efficiently. Its also a nuissance trying to track down any new devices that connect to my network by mac address to setup Qos.

I have a 30 meg plan through my provider. What i want to do is create and limit a guest network so that no matter how many devices are attached they all share a capped (15meg) network. Has anyone done this through their firmware?

Looking through amazon i saw a specific model TC-W7960 (N300) combo modem/router. I emailed the manufacturer directly through their live expert agent option but just received an unhelpful answer. They basically told me that model is only a modem, which it clearly says its not. (The TC-W7960 combines a DOCSIS 3.0 modem with a 300Mbps Wi-Fi router to help you get more from your Internet). Then they just referred me to 10 different model numbers of ONLY routers. I could just get a router but when i saw this combo unit i thought it would be a better choice since my modem is from like 2009. Anyway just wanted to see if i could receive a more helpful answer here since contacting their support agents was just a waste of time.
We continue to experience issues with connecting to the device.
We are trying to get the data off the drives before they fail.
We can't stay connected long enough to copy the files.

About 1.4 TB of data

So any thoughts on how to get the data off quickly and easily?
If we remove the drives will we be able to access them using an adapter or external usb case? Will they be locked? Partition type? I'm using windows 10.

Any way to direct connect? It has direct Direct copy, but it only seems to work with onboard usb to LinkStation, is there a way to do LinkStation to onboard USB

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Storage / What is the largest hard drive the TS-X8.0TL/R5 can support?

What is the largest hard drive the TS-X8.0TL/R5 can support without doing crazy stuff to the bios or tweaking?

I think I posted about this a long time ago and the answer was either 3TB or 4TB but I can't find the post.

I was going to pull the trigger on the upgrade and wanted to double check on the hard drive size.

   <p>I have rapidly become a very disgruntled Buffalo user.  I had a Buffalo Linkstation HS-DH500GL which after about 9 months had a hard drive failure.  I was somewhat happy with RMA process.  I am in the military and live in Japan thus USPS liteblue is my only option.  Since Buffalo will only use UPS I ended up having to pay shipping both ways which while not crazy expensive was still not ideal, but at least I was getting a "new" linkstation right.  Well I recieved the new drive, same model, and after only 2 weeks it has begun to shutdown and emit a continues beep tone.  I called customer service who offered to RMA it again, but were unwilling to pay for the shipping or offer an sort of upgrade to perhaps a less defect prone product. When I asked what the beep meant the guy on the phone simply said it indicated some sort of problem, wow very insightful, thanks!  Ohh, and for some reason I have to resubmit my proof of purchase which took over a week last time to get a response to.  They should still have the **bleep** thing on file, it's only been a month since I submitted it the first time!  Needless to say I am beyond frustrated with this company at the moment.</p><p> </p><p>As if the above is not bad enough, I now see that one of the main features I had used in the past seems to have disappeared.  I used to use the web access to stream my audio files.  I can stream them one by one still, but the audio link that the manual says should be in the bottom left corner does not exist.  I am using the latest 2.11 firmware.  It amazes me that they can take an advertised function away with no repercussions or explanation.  The ability to easily upload to the device is new to me and very nice, but I want my audio playlist feature back.  Is anyone else experiencing this problem or has heard if it is going to be fixed?  I know this post is a bit of a rant, but I am curious to know if others are having similar issues with Buffalo like I am or if I am just unlucky!</p><p> </p><p>Nate</p>

Same problem here.
Storage / 64 bit version of NAS Navigator 2 for Mac Mojave
« Last post by BrianObie on July 20, 2019, 05:34:11 pm »
I cannot find a 64 bit version of NAS Navigator 2 for Mac Mojave. The most recent version of software that I can find on the Buffalo site is Version 2.99, which is 32 bit, and which is what I have installed.

Is there a 64 bit version available for Mac Mojave? If not, will there ever be one?

Any advice appreciated.

Okkayyy thanks
I have an LS210 and I cannot access this drive. It shows up on my IP network and I can ping it but it is not available though NAS NAV or File Explorer. I cannot access web access through the IP either I get an error that connection is refused. This just all happened recently until about a month ago I had no issues accessing the drive. I have turned SMB setting on in windows but no difference.

I have a lot of important stuff on that drive and would like to recover it. I think I tried a firmware update and it failed but I was able to access it after that.

Kinda' desperate here.

Yeah. Retailers are just retails. They are just mediators between end consumer and supplier.
