Connecting NAS drive to Whole home wifi discs

Im trying to access my NAS drive on my PC. I have 3 discs, 1 in lounge, 1 in bedroom and 1 next to my EE router.  I can get the NAS to work by plugging into the back of one of the discs in the lounge or bedroom, however I want the NAS next to the router as it has a fan which gets noisey, and all of this equipment is in a ventilated cupboard out of the way.

 

So, the Master Disc is connected to the roter in one of the RJ45 ports.  I conenct the NAS drive to one of the Router ports, but cannot access the NAS unless i switch from the DISC wifi to the router WIFI.  As all my devices are connected to the DISC, none can use the NAS unless each user switches to the EE router wifi.   Is it possible to leave the NAS connected to the EE router, but somehow make it accessible through the DISC wifi?

Welcome to this BT Retail Customer forum.

There is a help page here https://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Devices/Problem-with-Whole-Home-Wi-Fi-Read-this-first/m-p/1908749#M72...

Have you asked on the EE forum, to see if anyone is using this system?

Its not an EE issue, EE are just the router/internet provider.

No, but it might be a quirk of the EE supplied router.

All issues now resolved - nothing I did. I assume a firmware update must have taken place. Very happy now - thanks BT
