2784Re: [LinkStation_General] Linkstation lock-ups?
- Jun 3 8:52 AMHad very similar problems with mine also. I found out
the Linkstation is very sensitive to external
electro-magnetic fields. Sometime just by moving it a
little it would stop the lockups.
After I put the Linkstation in its permant home it
started locking again, it was within 3" of a ups. I
made a shield out of sheet metal and placed between
the ups and the Linky and all is well.
PS. I have 2 120 Linkys and both have this problem.
