I bought one of these Linksys Network Storage Links tonight. After spending 20 minutes waiting on chat with tech support and moving 80gb of files, I've discovered 3 things that would have made installing this a whole lot easier

1) When running the setup utility, disable any computer firewalls
2) Linksys uses its own file format, so you have to reformat any existing usb hard drives
3) Linksys assumes you are using a Linksys router, which by default uses the ip range 192.168.1.x. If your router uses a different ip range, you have to modify the ip address of the storage link to fit in the same range

It looks like it is finally done formating, I'll post more after I get to use it for a bit

Here is a Yahoo group dedicated to this hardware

I have one of those as well. I've had nothing but problems with mine. It seems to be locking up on an files over a hundred meg or so. I hope you have better luck with yours then I do.

Mine worked well for over 6 month and then I began getting "access denied" when I attempt to write to USB drive. Poking around the web I find others have had the same problem and nothing short for reformatting seems to fix it.

You need to know youe WAN ip address and then port forward it to the ip address of your linksys.
so it would be wanip:8080 doinf this from memory.. on your router you need to port froward to ip address of linksys:8080

LED dies that are brighter, lenses that don’t cut light output and cover the LED “dots” that people see in bulbs and fixture, as well as creating fixtures that can be used by consumers that are bright enough to replace a 100W incandescent bulb..LED downlights
