Good Morning Everyone,

First off.. Happy Thanksgiving, hope you all have a awesome weekend, be safe!               

Okay, so im trying to set up the LinkStation Duo [Model: LS-WX2 R1] and well I seem to have hit a wall in the road. So upon trying to set it up and get it going, i discover that it had stopped the install and started blinking red (6 times fallowed by a brief pause, then repeated)  I then got in touch with those over at Buffalo, who told me that i need to sideload the firmware as its just a bit too old, and that they themselves only keep around 2 years with of firmwares backups. He recommended that i come over here and  make a post saying that he is positive ill find someone to point me in the right direction or ultimately help me directly. So what im understanding (cause now i know what you know lol) is someone on here may have the firmware i need, and possible a friendly tutorial on how to sideload this device.

Hope to hear from you
