2773Re: Linkstation lock-ups?
- Jun 1, 2005Your lockups are probably caused by the 1.44 firmware.
I had the same problem a year ago.
How long have you put up with the lockups?
With the new 1.47_modified you get telnet enabled and you don't have
to hack it anymore.
And you know the password for root.
Upgrade and I bet all your problems go away.
