Linksys EFG80 repair

Have an out-of-warranty Linksys EFG80 which is not operating. Linksys states they do not repair their own equipment out of warranty. Their new NAS (NAS200) is unable to read the drives. Need to have the EFG80 repaired or if not possible a means to retrieve the data from the disk drives in use with the EFG80. Thank you.

Re: Linksys EFG80 repair

Apparently the EFG80 uses a particular brand of linux for it's operating system.
if you mount the drive in a machine running linux you should be able to read a retrieve the data.

SOURCE: Linksys EFG80 repair / drive retrieval

haven't tried this, but get UBCD

install the drive as a second drive in an XP machine and boot from the UBCD disk. It should read both the NTFS and the Linux drive.

Good luck.

PNY Does not Honor ''Lifetime Warranty'' for memory

Ram installed about 2 years ago I think 2x4gb ddr3 sodimms
Failing after a year started as blue screens and not recognized short time after.
Without receipt = no warranty
Got it as a gift = no warranty
Oem = no warranty
Purchase with gift card and misplace receipt = no warranty
House burn down with all paperwork = no warranty
Not good at keeping records =- no warranty
I have been in contact with PNY and can you tell they have told me without the receipt they can do nothing for me?
COMPLETE WAISTE of the word warranty.
and yes there support people get smart with you and quote other companies warranties and state see they do they same thing!
Why even have a lifetime warranty, just call it a "prove it" warranty?

Yellow Machine is not Mounting....

The reason the drive won't mount is because the RAID is corrupted. It may require manual intervention. You would have to log in through root on the box. How long did you wait before trying to mount a partition. Trying waiting 2-3 hours (if you see lots of disk activity they are going through a repair). If you see none then you have to go the manual intervention route as root and run the "md" commands to identify the root cause and repair the volume.

The unofficial support website is:

You would need to use the RAID tools on the linux os loaded on the unit in order to repair.

Good luck,

You can check the settings and if it is again again losing the settings then there might be a possibilty that the firmware of Nss4000 has gone faulty or is corrupted.
You will have to upgrade it through the CD provided to you or best will be to contact Linksys and they will be able to give you the exact information...

Linksys efg120 NAS

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:

Problem with exec 11d and NSS4000

Can you create folders by hand from the same account that the backupexec services are running under? if not you have to change the permissions.

Password problem

On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin." Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router
