I have a DS 1010+ on my work LAN that I'm hoping this forum can help me with. It has worked fine when connected directly to my workstation or laptop, but now that I've put it on the LAN any mapped network connection is unstable and fails to reconnect, giving me the error "the device is unavailable", or my other favorite "the device is already in use", but only intermittently -- making it all the more frustrating.
Generally, when it disconnects (approx every ~15 mins) I can't reconnect or access DSM via webbrowser unless I access it through Synology Assistant. Then it will let me into DSM or reconnect.
Synology support is, so far, rather perplexed too, and things are pointing to some local network setting, router/switch, or ?
Have others experienced issues where their machines are setup correctly, but some network issue is causing the diskstation to drop and then fail to automatically reconnect?
Thanks for any comments.
Running XP and Win 7 64, DS1010+ & 3.2-1944, have tried 'local master browser', DHCP vs static, and a few other things i'm forgetting...
