==Difference between LS1, LS2, HG, HS==
+
[[category:Hardware]]
If the firmware version is 1.xx then you have a ppc-based-Linkstation (LS1, HG, HS), if it is 2.xx it is an LS2 (mips).
+
[[category:FAQ]]
 
+
all LS except the HG have autosensing, so no switch for changing the LAN-Port is there.
+
 
+
Crossover switch -> LS1
+
No Crossoverswitch + Firmware Version 2.xx -> LS2
+
No Crossoverswitch + Firmware Version 1.xx -> HG or HS
+
 
+
 
+
'''TODO:''' Find a difference between HG & HS. I expect differences in the webinterface (pcast & upnp)

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.

=== 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:
