Hello. My unit has suddenly lost the ability to boot properly.

I had a look at a similar thread:
But the links there are dead.

So what can I do?

    The links work, if you exchange zyxel.diskstation.eu by metarepository.tk

    BTW, a NAS236?

    Yes. I was hoping they would lead to a directory with the files for several devices, including my model.

    I can see a NAS326.zip file there, but I wonder if it's just for v1 or both v1 and v2.

    I also see some form of recovery tools, but I don't want to download the wrong things so I have not downloaded either.

    Where do you suggest I begin?
    Extracting your NAS326 zip to a FAT formatted flash drive and plugging it into the back of my unit?

    There doesn't exist a NAS236.zip file, nor a NAS236 v2. There is a NAS326 or a NSA325v2. And for both a zipfile is available.

    My mind has been a bit fixated on the number 23 at work lately, hence the mixup. Sorry about that. (it's supposed to be 326 v2)

    But you still don't mention if the zip file is usable on v2 or just v1.

    AFAIK the only 'v2' ever is the NSA325v2. There doesn't exist a NAS326v2. Unless you have got the only one, in which case I can't tell if the NAS326.zip file is compatible.

    How odd. It doesn't actually say "v2" on the sticker for my unit but it was labeled as "v2" on the receipt. It seems you were right

    How do I proceed?
    Your "metarepository" link has been down for a while.

    Is being worked on. The hoster of the page has disappeared, but the maintainer is busy to move it to another host.

    As migration should be mostly automated, I'm surprised the domain is currently serving a template Apache page. I was hoping it would be sorted by now
