Thats it, I give up :(
Linkstation has started locking up again. It goes non-responsive and just starts beeping. So I think Im going to sell mine on and put the money towards an ION based server.

Ill take it off your hands :D

Trying to decide whether to just use it for the task it is designed or not ;)

Give me until after the weekend to work it out.

Np.

Got my eye on a couple of Terastations on Ebay :D

Im gutted tbh.
I love having a little box in the corner with all my storage hanging off it and it being able to do my leeching. I just cannot get a stable build :(

tbh, my Revo has just decided to start BSODing for no reason as well. Im getting close to just sacking the whole lot off and going back to reading books by candle light.

/rant

One of my drives occasionally does it.  Maybe once a month.

No biggy, reboot and its away.  Its generally when Im really pushing it.

Yeah I think the problem I have is that I am trying to get it to handle 20 * 1mbit connections to news groups. I just dont think the linkstation has the grunt for that many connections and it crashes (over heats?) during the downloads.

If I sack the downloading off its rock solid and being able to hang 2 additional USB drives off of it is pretty handy. I just liked the idea of it being the only thing I left on 24/7, as it is right now Im using my Revo for the downloading.

I still think you should 7v/12v the fan.  Try it with the side off and a fan pointing at it.  Should be an easy cure.  Mines currently been downloading for the past 3 weeks constantly, but I do only have a 3.5mb connection.

Hello

Just registered here to say, thanks for a really great HOWTO.

Not quite there yet, but Im sure a bit more reading will do the trick.

Thanks again

Well Ive just won a terastation quad 1tb on eBay. Hopefully it will have arrived by the time I get back from my hols. Let more fun commence!

Not sure how this price fares?

Buffalo LinkStation Live 2.0Tb DLNA Certified MultiMedia Network Storage with BitTorrent £139.99 @ Amazon

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/buffalo-linkstation-live-2-0tb-dlna/746944

Thats a good price tbh.  Not much more than a 2TB Drive.

I paid about the same for a Terastation Quad (4 drives) 1TB

Just reading though your guide, theres a whole section thats not required.

If youre running StevieWonder, you dont need ACPCommander.  Its already telnetted.  You need to do a factory reset of the settings to get the telnet password to be blank.

Gah.  Im about to launch this one out the window.  

Lighttpd is being flaky, even after changing the bit to Poll.

Might grab another linkstation from my shelf and try it.
