as you might notice there are 5 different types of linkstations....
1) HD-HLAN with Firmware 1.xx....it is often called the Linkstation 1
2) HD-HLAN with Firmware 2.xx.... it is called Linkstation 2(MIPS)
3) HD-HGLAN with Firmware 1.xx (you have one)....it is called the
Gigabit Linkstation (ppc)
4) Kurobox and Kurobox HG.....this is the version for advanced
users...but the administrative Interface for it is not as intuitive as
the Linkstations webinterface....but you can compile your own apps
with it out of the box
5) so...and there is a new type of linkstation....the number five at
the moment, it is brandnew. the HS-DGL, which is indeed the same
Hardware as the HG-HLAN but has a slightly different software on it
(which supports uPNP...the Mediabolic Software)...there is no software
at the download section at the moment...i don`t know what the
HD-HTGL-Firmware is for...but i don`t think it is for the HS-DGL....
For the first three Types there are telnet enabled firmwares available
....the telnet enabled
firmwares are named "openlink", as they "open" the possibilities the
user can use the linkstation for....if you install the developement
tools you are even able to compile various apps for them.
on the kurobox you can do that with the stock firmware....and for the
HS-DGL i just recieved a version that has at least telnet included...i
will make this one available soon....it was created and tested by a
user who owns a HS-DGL and built in the utelnetd on its own...
i hope i could prevent you from desperately trying to update the wrong
firmware on your HG-Linkstation.
www.linkstationwiki.org <- look here...it is worth doing it....
