LS-XL209 replacing failed drive and reinstalling firmware
« on: June 26, 2019, 05:03:24 am »
Help please. The hard drive failed on this unit, and I have fitted a replacement drive. Now I am struggling to find out how to reinstall the firmware. Having read a variety of threads, I am confused.

The main problem is identifying the unit. The heading is the how NAS Navigator used to identify the unit before it failed. The descriptor on the back of the device is LS-X2. OTL-EU.

Can someone please point me to the correct procedure. Thanks in advance.

Mark

You can install the firmware on a new drive with this procedure:

The link @oxygen8 posted talks about the TFTP process. You can extract the needed files to install via TFTP using this process:

Iíve got another link regarding TFTP as well:

the LS-XL has no function button
i recommend this way from the link:

Quote
This worked for me.
I had a single clean NTFS format - quick format is fine.
Connected the LS-XL to my router and then plugged it in the power socket.
Gave it 10+ minutes and then unplugged it - blue light keeps flashing.
Then I connected it to my laptop network port before plugging in the power.
Wait a few minutes (was a lot less than 10) and the LED light stops flashing.
Run Navigator2 and it will pick up the unit.
--I had to do the following as DHCP will not work with the unit/router
--That is, I have to manually assign an IP address on the unit
Connect to LS-XL using a browser with name given to LS-XL or ip address - both shows up in Navigator2.
Log in with admin/password.
Click on the Network tab and in IP Address Settings fill in the following

DHCP:                                 Disabled
Primary IP Address:              Static IP for the LS-XL   eg. 192.168.1.14
                                          (Unused IP - check in your router menu)
Subnet Mask:                       Same as your router     eg. 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway Address:      Your router IP address  eg. 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS Server:              Your router IP address
Secondary DNS Server:

Click Save
Wait a few minutes (it was less than 10) - from memory I waited till the message displayed on the browser says unit is rebooting.
 
Unplug power.
Connect unit to the router and plug in power
Unit should now work and visible on your network.
