Question about Linksys (EFG120) 120 GB

1 Answer

Linksys efg120 NAS

The efg120 will not change any of its settings. I can access the web manager but when I change a setting and click on save I get an error message telling me that is cannot read the data. I can sign on as admin but it will not perform any disk task or change settings. Any ideas? I am assuming that their is a flash memory that is not being accessed.

Do a power cycle of the NAS, leave the power cable out for 15 seconds and try again. It may just be that the access to the data has been locked during a read/write process and has not released the access. Failing that, check for firmware updates - it may be a known issue. You can find the firmware for this device here:

In your office network, for sure, you have a DHCP server who gave the IP addresses to all devices for that network and this seems to be the reason for why you could see your NAS. On home, you also need a DHCP server. You don't say anything about you home network. The best idea is to just make a temporary network with 2 devices: your computer and your NAS by connecting the NAS directly to your computer's network adapter, set the IPV4 IP for that adapter to the same class addresses as your NAS was set by default (usually NAS had "192.168.x.y" where "x" could be 0, 1 or 2 "y" could be any value between 1 and 254, but mostly, 1) and try to access it via http to manage him (need a user name and a password). For NAS default address and username and password, consult NAS user manual. Access it with from your preferred browser using: \\192.168.x.y
Once you gain the control, cut off his DHCP service and tell him to accept the IP address from the network defined DHCP. (btw: one normal DHCP server is allowed on one network! Cascaded DHCP also is allowed, but it's a little bit complicated)
Good luck!

There's a 9-pin serial connection on the back, can you use that connection to a terminal to see anything? Also, if you don't have access to the manual, visit this link to download the manuals:
