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.
Maintainance -> SystemStatus -> Firmware Version, should list your firmware version.

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.
Linkstations contain an Atmel AVR microcontroller (MCU), which is typically controlled by the CPU (SoC) via an LS-internal serial connection. The AVR controls much of the LinkStation hardware, including the power button and LED indicator.
Results were obtained using nbench 2.2.2, hdparm 6.1, and netio 1.14. They may be installed via the [ipkg feed]. All nbench results are in comparison to an AMD K6 233Mhz reference system.
