Difference between LS1, LS2, HG

If the firmware version is 1.xx then you have a ppc-based-Linkstation (LS1,HG), if it is 2.xx it is an LS2 (mips). all LinkStations except the LS1 have autosensing, so no switch for changing the LAN-Port is there.

TODO: Find a difference between HD-HGLAN (HG) & HS-DGL(HS). I expect differences in the webinterface (pcast & upnp)

LS2 and HG LS1

The powerpc-hdhlan (LS1) LinkStation can also be identified by the presence of a crossover switch located at the rear of the unit; the mipsel-hdhlan (LS2) and powerpc-hdhglan (HG) LinkStations do not have a crossover switch as they are auto-switching.

Linkstation Information

AVR

Linkstations contain an Atmel AVR microcontroller (MCU), which is typically controlled by the CPU (SoC) via an LS-internal serial connection. The AVR performs several LS housekeeping funktions:


Benchmarks


Boot Loader

Flash ROM


Hardware


Kernel

LED


Software

Watchdog Timer
