I've just bought diskless pro duo, but there is no manual how to install HDs, could you help me? I connected station to router, no answer. When I connected station directly to PC (network interface on 192.168.11.1), no answer. Maybe I need some disk image to start...

I purchased 2 750 Gb hd and installed it. I did not get any errors when I powered up. But none of my PCs can see the NAS. I am wondering if I need to make changes to my router. I have a Dlink DI-524. Need some help.

The files you need are in the firmware updater files.
uImage.buffalo and initrd.buffalo.
However I think there is a password protection on the img files.
Plus I followed the instruction and got the unit to tftp boot successfully but then the firmware update failed leaving me with a unresponsive brick so becareful.

Paul, not sure where every one else got theres but mine was pure eBay. Mine was from a pc breaker that took the drives out to sell seperately. I can't guarentee all of these posts are being generated from the same seller but he quite a few listed. Given the amount of things the guy sells I would think he is buying job lots and breaking them for valuable parts. He didn't seem to know much about the Linkstations. That said mine was working in so much as I was able to bring it up via tftp and it was reporting the drives correctly as unformatted.
I didn't realise at the time that I would have to tftp boot mine to get it connected to the network. I imagined it would be like the older Linkstations where even when the drive had failed they would appear and aquire an ip.
