How to fix you CHD3NET (RDC 2891 LANDISK)

This fix is for those who have a Conceptronic CHD3NET (or any device running RDC’s 2891 LANDISK chipset) and upgraded it to a new firmware but where it did not reboot properly: here’s the tip how-to restore the firmware especially when your firmware upgrade failed and you are only able to ping to the NAS.

Other features seem unusable to start: the web user interface at  cannot start and TFTP functions are also not functioning (RDC does not support Telnet) so it seems you are now the ‘proud’ owner of an USB storage device!

Here’s are the steps how you can try to fix your bricked LANDISK with RDC 2891 chipset:

1) Download the latest firmware
2) Download this file
3) unzip this file somewhere on you harddrive and browse to the ‘Utility Tool’  Directory. Execute Scan ip.exe and perform a scan, after a moment your NAS will be found by the program.

4) Select the NAS from the list and press the SETUP NAS button, you might get some error message but just ignore them. Now you’ll entered a menu where you’ll be able to download new firmware to the NAS.

5) Browse to the directory where you saved the .bin firmware and upload this to you NAS, afterwards you’ll need to reboot and back is you WebInterface

RDC 2891 chipset LANDISK

For those people with a RDC 2891 chipset LANDISK (low-cost)

I have managed to get a new kernel driver: kernel-s2891-010b1 

There are no release-notes available yet, but I know for sure that a number of stability / compability issues are or will be solved. Just upgrade the file through the webinterface. Note: No warranties.

Note: this is NOT a kernel update for the RDC2882 chipset. Only for the RDC2891 chipset
