Image from store ZyXEL NAS Link Capture
Description from store ZyXEL's NSA210 has a really nifty Download Service with a cool plugin for Firefox and IE provided on the installation disc. This extension now makes that functionality available to Chrome! You don't need to download a large file to your computer and then move it to the NAS. You don't even have to wait for the download to complete before shutting down your computer! Simply right click on any link or image and click the new menu item to send the link to your NSA210; it will begin downloading your file on its own! You can even select some text and send that to your NAS; it will try to download your selection as if it were a URL. As a lovely side-effect of the way the NSA210 works, if you send it a torrent file it will connect to the trackers and download the torrent! This extension may work with other ZyXEL NAS devices, but has only been tested with the NSA210. The "Download Service" must be enabled on your NSA210 for this extension to work. The extension also requires your NAS's IP address or network name. You may be asked to log in to your NAS quite often; this is due to the cookie life expectancy set by ZyXEL and is controlled by the NAS, not the extension. I am not employed by ZyXEL or affiliated with them in any way. I'm simply a customer, like you, who paid for a product and wants to use all of its features. ----------------- AUTHOR'S NOTE: If you get some kind of error with "nsa210 cannot be found", most likely your computer or something in your local network is misbehaving. Go into the extension's options and change the name to the IP of your device (screenshot #4). That should fix it! Make sure Applications → Download Service is enabled on the Administration page of your NAS web interface. You can choose any subdirectory for the Download Service in case you have a different firmware than ZyXEL NSA210 or NSA325 v2. Advanced users may specify a custom subdirectory to get this extension working on other ZyXEL NAS products. Version 0.37 updates to Manifest V3 with a service worker to replace the background script. No user data is collected/sent/sold/stored by this extension. It only stores 2 values (in extension options) in local storage and then uses those to build the URL string for a popup window to communicate with your NAS. These values are deleted when uninstalling the extension.

  • (2016-05-24) dusan tomic: It doesn't do what is supposed to do on my NSA310. I don't think that developer understand ins and outs of the Zyxel Download system. It needs to be re-written!
  • (2016-01-08) Works perfectly on my NAS540, using the /adv, subdirectory. Thanks!

  • (2013-12-01) Jing: I have the following errors. It works every first time. Once the cookie is saved, the extension can not locate the link. One solution is to delete the cookie every single time. Then it will back to work. Is there a alternate solution? BTW My system is NSA325. Not Found The requested URL /,adv/addURL.html was not found on this server.

  • (2013-10-09) In order to make it working for NSA310 with 4.61 firmware, follow the points below: 1. Find the file zxlink.js on your computer (I do not put the exact link as it can be different on different systems - just use search functionality on the drive your system is installed on) 2. Click the right mous button on the file and choose Edit option 3. Edit the line: var naslink = "http://"+ip+"/zyxel/addURL.html?url="+url; to var naslink = "http://"+ip+"/,adv/addURL.html?url="+url; 4. Save the file. In the options of the extension just put the IP of your NAS. It works perfectly for both stadard files and torrents.

  • (2012-11-30) Alexandru Gherghina: Works perfectly on my NSA310. If it says it can't find the NSA, just make sure you entered it's address correctly. Also, an option to disable the confirmation window would be nice.
  • (2012-10-02) Stuart O: Great piece of work. It works fine. But am not able to use the torrent function. The NAS gets the torrent but then says it's invalid and won't start downloading the file! Any advice? Otherwise great addition. Thank you.

  • (2016-07-01, v:0.35) Vladimír Blahož: HTTPS
    It would be nice if there was an option to use https url instead of only http. It would be slight change in code but huge benefit as I am not willing to put my credentials over unsecured protocol.
  • (2015-11-24, v:0.35) Nacho Diaz Asenjo: URL with Port Number
    It'd would be a good thing I can put a server with port number in configuration window. Something like this <servername>:<portnumber>

  • (2015-09-06, v:0.35) Christoph Petersen: 5.x Firmware
    Hi, does this extension also work with 5.x firmware (e.g. NAS540 device)?
