Step 1: Connect your Cables
Plug LinkStation’s power cord and Ethernet cable into the back of
the LinkStation.
Connect the power plug to a surge protector or power outlet. Plug
the other end of the Ethernet cable into a hub, switch, or router
on your local network.

Step 2: Check your Connection
Press the power button on
the front panel to turn your
LinkStation on.
Check the LINK/ACT LED on
the front of the LinkStation. If
it’s lit, then your LinkStation is
connected properly. Please turn
to page 4 to continue setup.
If the LINK/ACT LED on the
front of LinkStation is not lit,
your LinkStation is not properly
connected to your network.
Make sure that:
• both LinkStation and the hub, switch, or PC are powered on,
• the Ethernet cable is securely fastened to both devices, and
• the Ethernet cable is not damaged. To verify, try using another
Ethernet cable.
If problems persist, contact our technical support.

of your CD-ROM). Press OK to continue. If you are
installing the software on a Mac, open the cd and click
LinkNavigator to begin installation.
Click on Begin
Installation.
If you’re installing on a Mac,

Using your LinkStation with a Windows PC
If you’re using a Windows PC, two new
icons will be on your desktop: Shortcut for
LinkStation and Buffalo NAS Navigator.
The LinkStation shortcut will take directly to the
folders on your LinkStation.
Share is the main folder that you can put files
and folders in. Info contains a copy of your user
manual.
The Buffalo NAS Navigator icon opens
the LinkStation’s client utility. This
lets you easily view system information
for your LinkStation(s). If you click
Setup and choose Configuration
Settings, it will take you to the settings
configuration GUI, where you may
change your LinkStation’s settings.
Until you change it, the GUI’s username
is “admin” and the password is
“password”. Consult your user manual
for more information on the Buffalo NAS Navigator and the Settings
Configuration GUI.
Another way to access folders and
data on your LinkStation is through
the mapped driveletter ‘L’. When the
installation program ran, it added your
LinkStation’s main “share” folder to your
“My Computer” folder as drive ‘L’. Use
this virtual hard drive like any other hard
drive on your computer. You may add
additional shares and mapped drive letters to your LinkStation and PC;
consult your user manual for more information.

Using your LinkStation with a Mac
After installing the LinkNavigator software,
your Mac will have two new icons on the
desktop.
The Share folder is the main folder
that you can put files and folders in. NASNavigator is the
LinkStation’s client utility.
Clicking NASNavigator
opens the LinkStation’s
client utility. This lets
you easily view system
information for your
LinkStation(s). If you
click Setup and choose
Browser Management,
it will take you to the
settings configuration GUI,
where you may change
your LinkStation’s settings. Until you change it, the GUI’s
username is “admin” and the password is “password”. Consult
your user manual for more information on the Buffalo NAS
Navigator and the Settings Configuration GUI.
Clicking Share opens
the main folder on the
LinkStation. You may add
additional shares to your
LinkStation; consult your
user manual for more
information.
