The IP has been set to the given, fixed IP, however DNS and gateway have not been set. Use the WebGUI to make appropriate settings.

Apparently, your network configuration is incomplete.

Recently purchased a Buffalo LinkStation 420D, 4TB. Came with RAID0, but wanted it to be RAID1. Went into the GUI and tried to remove the original array and it failed, after which have gone through everything I can think of, and it seems like the device has bricked itself.

  • Upgraded firmware

  • Hard reset

  • Soft reset

  • Swapped drives on a prayer

Now i'm looking at no GUI access (only a grey screen), and I can't access the device across the network, however it does respond to pings, so i've got that going for me, which is nice.
