I have an NSA-220 that is running firmware V2.30(AFB.0). I've tried looking for a new version lately and found ZyXel no longer publishes firmware updates for this model. Does anyone have a copy of the latest firmware or know here I can get it? ZyXel doesn't have any files for the 220 on their ftp server anymore. google comes up blank as well.

I've found newer firmware for the Plus version, but contacts to ZyXel tells me that the Plus version firmware will not work on mine. Anyone tried this?

I recently got my first DLNA BluRay player, and the DLNA device doesn't see any video files on my NSA-220. It see music mp3 files from my iTunes library, but none of my mp4, m4v, divx, xvid, avi files. I'm only assuming it's because my NSA doesn't support the codec, but since I can't find anything newer or even release notes, I can't test this assumption. Does the newer versions expand video codec support for these?

Sorry for soo many question. I'd really love to watch my movies over DLNA to the TV. Thanks ahead of time for your help!

You can find many (all?) firmwares here. You'll first have to upgade using 312AFB0C0_for_2.30_or_above.zip and an USB stick, and then you can use the webinterface to upgrade to the latest.

The firmware will work, but it's not easy to get it on the box. The normal update routines will reject it.

Firmware is now at 3.24. However, now the server is very unresponsive through web interface. CPU running 90%+. drives clicking all the time with no traffic. Not sure what's causing this. Gonna try a reboot.

Thanks again for the help!

It's probably the mediaserver which is indexing. This can last several hours, maybe days, depending on the amount of media.
