***(NOTE: Some older NAS models may not have a TFTP solution available, if you cannot find your model in the listing please DO NOT attempt to use the TFTP program of another model.)***
Make sure your firewall/anti-virus software is disabled.
Performing the TFTP boot:
1. Directly connect your NAS to your computer via an Ethernet cable (crossover isn’t necessary).
2. Set your computer’s NIC (Network Interface Card) to a static IP address of 192.168.11.1
3. Run the TFTP program for your respective NAS and have the files extracted to your desktop
4. Boot the device using the EM walkthrough steps.
(Whilst NAS is off, hold reset button in on back, and turn on, it plays some silly tune, then your in)
5. Open the TFTP folder and run the program TFTP Boot.exe with the icon:
6. A command prompt similar to the one shown below should appear:
7. When the NAS boots up it will make a request to the IP address 192.168.11.1 (which is what your computer should be set at) and the terminal should look something like this:
8. If it doesn’t show the blocks served, try the process again. Some user have reported that after the device shows the error, holding the function button down for 5 seconds can provoke the TFTP requests.
After you see blocks of data being served the NAS typically boots to Emergency Mode at which point you can perform a firmware update. All you need to do from here is run the LSUPDATER.exe
