I was setting reserved address for my new WD TV Live media
server and my audio/video receiver earlier today. I saw that Enable
IP/MAC Binding was not set so I enabled it for both LAN1
My WD TV had a reserved address on LAN2. It is now
on LAN1 so I wanted to reserve its LAN1 address. When I turned
on the WD Live I got Error Message Loading and
the USG was locked up (no response to HTTP, Telnet or SSH and
no Internet access).
I unplugged it and plugged it back in and it was
still locked up. I tried a short press of reset and it was still locked
At this I remembered the Zywall 5 long reset and pushed reset
until the system LED started blinking. This unlocked it and set
everything to factory defaults.
Lucky for me I had made a backup two days ago.
I reloaded the
latest firmware (just in case) and restored my backup configuration.
I did not enable IP/MAC Binding.
Without Binding enanled it would not allow the WD live to have a
reserved address on LAN1 and LAN2 at the same time so I
removed the LAN2 reservation and was able to reserve the LAN1 address.
I don't know if you can avoid the reset by using the serial cable
because I dont remember where I stored the serial cable.
I have decided if I cant find the cable I will buy another one.
In either case I need to get a USB to serial adapter for my notebook PC.
I consider this be a nasty bug. I suspect it is common to the USG line.
If the factory reset procedure is in the manual a search on reset doesn't find it.
What is the procedure for reporting bugs?--
