This article originally Based on work by nix, frontalot, and admin. Originally by admin. at Linkstationwiki.org

Difference between LS1, LS2, HG

You can find the version number by calling “Maintenance/System Status” in the web interface. For systems which do not have gigabit ethernet, 1.x firmware designates a powerpc-hdhlan LinkStation while 2.x firmware designates a mipsel-hdhlan LinkStation. For system which do have gigabit ethernet, 1.x firmware designates a powerpc-hdhglan LinkStation.
The powerpc-hdhlan LinkStation can also be identified by the presence of a crossover switch located at the rear of the unit; the mipsel-hdhlan and powerpc-hdhglan LinkStations do not have a crossover switch as they are auto-switching.

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

Firmware version

Sysstat.jpg
Maintainance -> SystemStatus -> Firmware Version, should list your firmware version.
http://<linkstation-Ip>/cgi-bin/sysinfo.cgi
is the direct link.
From the forums:Newbie Please Help, Sorry if i seem stupid!

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 (LS1, LS2, and HG)

Linkstation 120 HD

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 functions:
