Western Digital My Net N600

Download HotspotOS

Flash instruction

Download the HotspotOS image.
Configure your computers IP address to 192.168.1.10 and connect to a LAN port in the router.
Turn the router off.

Using a paperclip, press and hold the reset button on the bottom of the router and turn it on. Hold the reset button for at least 15 seconds. Wait until the power light on the front is slowly flashing on and off.

On your computer, visit https://192.168.1.1
NOTE: You will not be able to ping this address.
Upload the HotspotOS image.
The router will now flash HotspotOS.
This will take a couple of minutes to achieve. You can ping 192.168.1.1 and watch for ping replies to see when your router has rebooted into HotspotOS.


Western Digital My Net N750

Download factory HotspotOS
Download sysupgrade HotspotOS

Flash instruction

Download both the -factory.bin and -sysupgrade.bin HotspotOS images.

Configure your computer’s ethernet port to static IP 192.168.1.2 (really any address in the 192.168.1.* range except 192.168.1.1 is fine) and connect it to a LAN port on the router.

If the router is turned on, turn it off (there is a handy power switch on the back). Using a paperclip or a similarly blunt but thin object, press and hold the reset button through the hole marked “Reset” on the bottom of the router. While keeping this button pressed, turn the router on. Hold the reset button until the power LED starts flashing slowly (this takes slightly less than 10 seconds), you can then release the reset button.

On your computer, open https://192.168.1.1/ in a web browser.
Browse and select the -factory.bin file you downloaded earlier and press “Update.” The router will now flash HotspotOS and instruct you to not turn it off. The timer on the page is just a simple countdown and does not reflect any flashing status, it will take about two minutes.

The router will reset and boot into HotspotOS. The first boot will, as usual, take a little bit longer than subsequent boot processes – the LED will be blinking for about two minutes . At this point, the HotspotOS installation is not stable yet (it would not be able to boot once you reset). It needs to be flashed once more:

Once the LED is solid, log into LuCI on your router https://192.168.1.1/ again.
Go to System > Backup/Flash Firmware, and choose “Flash new firmware file.” This time, browse and select the -sysupgrade.bin file you downloaded and choose “Upload”.
Deselect “keep settings” and choose to upgrade. Your router will now flash HotspotOS again and reboot after about a minute.

After the second reboot, your router should now stably run HotspotOS. Continue to configure it to your liking, including setting up a root password. You can also reset your computer’s network card to its previous settings.
