I have a LS-QL/ R5 and I"m trying to update to the latest firmware. I've downloaded the newest updater, but it fails to find the Linkstation, saying ""linkstation that needs updating wasn't found." I've tried this on a Mac (OS 10.6.8) and a PC (Win XP), with the firewall turned off, both connected over a switch and directly connected. I'm able to connect to the web interface or the storage shares, just the updated won't find the Linkstation.
Any help with this situation would be appreciated,

Hi, thanks for responding.
My answers are:
Are you using tftp correctly?
I'm not using tftp at all, that I'm aware of. I honestly don't know what it is. I'm using the updater application available from Buffalo.
What does the unit come up in nasnavigator?
It comes up as:
Product: LS-QL/R5 Series
IP Address; 192.168.1.25
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Is there a red flashing led?
Are you using pre-formatted drives?

I know that this thread is a bit older, but I got my LS-QL8.0/R5 last week (with Firmware 1.11) and I'm having exactly the same problems with updating the Firmware.
Where do I unlock authorization?
Hope someone is still reading...
