Hi everybody. I recently updated my MacBook Pro from OSX Snow Leopard to OSX Lion (10.7.3). Since then, my Time Machine backup does not work anymore.
I know you will ask for the details of my configuration... so here they are: a DS211 with two Western Digital HDs (they are included in the HCL) in RAID 1 configuration; the Disk Station is connected to the WiFi router by wire (100 Mbit ethernet connection), while the MacBook connects using a wireless connection (WPA 2 - PSK); the router is a Linksys WAG160n.
However it is important to consider that Time Machine backups worked without any problem until I made the OSX update. I have also tried to update the DS from DSM 3.2 to DSM 4.0, anyway the the problem is still there.
These are the symptoms: when Time Machine starts the backup process, it hangs "Looking for remote disk" or "Preparing backup". After a short while, the wireless connection freezes and it is impossible to reach any other device on the network. To resume wifi connectivity, the only solution I found is to turn WiFi off and on again on the MacBook.
Looking for a solution on the Net, I found an interesting discussion in Apple forums: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/31 ... 0&tstart=0
. It looks like there are some undocumented commands in AFP protocols, that are used only by Apple TimeCapsule. Without them the backups with Time Machine are not executed or, worst of all, can become corrupted without warnings.
Has anybody experienced a similar problem? Could you give me some suggestions, please?
