Hi. Just got 2012 Camry. There are blinking blue lights behind the mirror. OK to leave them like that? It is night time now. Thank you. Concerned.


Indicator LED's can run for a very long time. It will not kill a battery that's in good shape for weeks. During long term storage, it's recommended the battery is disconnected. If these are the courtesy lights in the side mirrors, the lights will turn off on their own.

How do I get my Linkstation Live LS-XL 3TB - Flashing Blue Light to stop blinking?


Lets hope you did not damage it with a failed installation. (if it was firmware) If you just tried the install CD: Most of the time when you change the router (this wifi box....) you also change the IP range. If you set a fix IP on the storage what most people do you do not find it in the new network. The solution woud be a reset, or connect a PC with old IP range, change it to the new.
What do you see in the NAS NAvigator? Quote the device name pls.

My d-link router name no longer appears in my wireless networks list - I can not find it to connect to the internet wirelessly


Hi, this seems to be either an issue with your router's hardware or local computer wireless adapter hardware. In order to determine which one is it do the following:

1. Go and check the LEDs on your wireless router to see if there are any blinking or switched off as stated in the official manual documentation for DLink products (can be found here or here more specific).
LEDS are as follows (left to right - per official user manual/doc):
- Power LED = A solid light indicates a proper connection to the power supply. cdekatrr_0.png
- Internet LED = A solid light indicates a proper connection to the Internet port. This LED blinks during data transmission. cdekatrr_1.png
- WLAN LED = A solid light indicates that the wireless segment is ready. The LED blinks during wireless data transmission. cdekatrr_2.png
- Local Network LEDs = A solid light indicates a connection to an Ethernet-enabled computer on ports 1-4. This LED blinks during data transmission. cdekatrr_3.png


2. Check the laptop's or desktop wireless adapter if it is disabled or enabled and if is disabled enable it by going to your computer's Control Panel (either winxp or vista/win7) and go to network connections (in vista/win7 put the control panel in detailed view to see more options) and then right click on your wireless connection and click enable.



3. In a case that also the wireless adapter is enabled but you still cannot see any access points/wireless networks please go to your current wireless connection and right click go "Diagnose", this feature is mainly available in windows 7 or Vista. For windows XP, go to the command prompt by going to Start->Run->type in the box "cmd" without the quotes->Then type in the following set of commands.
ipconfig /release ---> This will refresh your wireless card IP settings/configuration to 0.
and after that command finishes, type in:
ipconfig /renew --> This will get new settings if the wireless card has problems finding an address from your router.

You can always reset your router (unplug from power supply, wait 2minutes then plug it back in)
or:
Reset the wireless adapter (right click from on the wireless adapter shown in the network connections, disable and then re-enable it) or computer.

Thanks please let me know if you need anything else.

If the drive front LED alternates between Red and Blue, whilst the rear LEDs are normal, then it is a tempertaure warning. Ensure that there is plenty of space around the drive and at the rear.

Lacie 2 big does,nt boot


Hmmm, reseting worked on mine. Identical symptoms except light stayed blue, not red. Unable to power down.
Before trying to get the drive working I got the data off using the procedure in the second post of this thread:

http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/peripherals-hardware/126831-reseting-lacie-2big-network.html

You need a linux system running. Maybe a live cd will do. I installed on an old IDE drive I had.

I then rest the decive using this procedure from Lacie and my drive is working again. Worthless though, because I can't trust it.

The procedure below will reset the 2Big Network to factory settings:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Following the procedure below can ERASE ALL DATA on the drive. Prior to following these directions, verify important data is stored securely on a different storage device.
Switch the drive OFF. Once it has shut down, ensure the power switch remains in the OFF position.
If the drive is in the SAFE mode, move the RAID switch to the BIG mode.
PRESS AND HOLD the button on the front. MOVE the power switch to the ON position. The light on the front of the drive will start blinking.
Once the light stops blinking, RELEASE the front button.
When released, it will begin BLINKING AGAIN. When it stops, PRESS AND HOLD the front button. The light will begin to blink again.
When the light stops blinking, RELEASE the button. The drive is now resetting itself. Switch the RAID selector back to SAFE if desired.
To restore data if it was lost during the process, recreate the shares and users on the unit prior to the reset. Any firmware updates applied will need to be applied again.
