Lacie Cloudbox NAS HH6

Hi - I've had no resolution to attaching a Lacie Cloudbox NAS to the HH6 at home.

  

- going from HH5 to HH6 my LaCie network media server can no longer be accessed (it works fine on other routers (eg BT Business Hub at work) I have connected it up to in order to test it. It just wont see it on the nw.

 

Is there some kind of blocking going on - is there something I need to enable to allow it to work? Hoping someone can share some experience, guidance or point me somewhere. Thanks.

 

 

cheers

William

Re: Lacie Cloudbox NAS HH6

Its not clear what you are trying to do?

 

Are you just trying to access it locally on your LAN, or are you trying to access it from the Internet?

Re: Lacie Cloudbox NAS HH6

Hi - thanks and sorry for the confusion. I am simply attaching it to the HH6 via an Ethernet cable into one of the yellow ports on the back - and trying to see it on the other devices connected to the wireless LAN  in the house - ie laptops, TV. It has a bunch of storred films and music etc Nothing fancy. But yes, seeing it over the WiFi..

 

It has worked fine on previous HH - ie it could be seen by the exact same devices etc

 

I have taken it out and linked it up to another BT Business Hub at work (seperate premises) and accessed it through the same devices attached to the wireless LAN from that box in order to check it's workng OK

 

Re-attaching it to the HH6 at home and it cant be seen...

 

Can I provide any other info?

 

Cheers

William

What do you mean by that?

 

Can wireless connected devices see the NAS, but Ethernet connected ones can`t?

 

Have you disabled Smart Setup on the home hub 6?

Sorry.

 

Wireless devices cannot see the NAS or connect to it.

Ethernet connected devices (connected into the router) cannot see/access it either. The same HH6 the NAS is pugged into.

 

I have not - and do not know how - to disable smartsetup should I?

 

cheers

William

Re: Lacie Cloudbox NAS HH6

will that affect the operation of any other connected devices (ie do I have to reconnect them etc?)

cheers

No effect, but it could be the reason why the NAS cannot connect.

Re: Lacie Cloudbox NAS HH6

I also have this issue. Upgraded to HH6, the Smart Hub, and can't access my NAS.

 

The instructions you offer above are useless as there appears to be no way of disabling the Smart part.

 

Is it possible or do I bin it and plug in my old faithful HH3?

 

Thanks,
