[HELP] Network & Updating
« on: December 02, 2010, 12:56:19 pm »

Hello!

 

I got my Linkstation LS-CHL 500gb a couple of hours ago and I have been at it ever since.

 

The problem is, that I can't reach my NAS/Files trough the network. When I go to Network -> MastermindsNAS it says 'Windows cannot access \\MASTERMINDSNAS'

When I click on show details it says 'errorcode 0x80070035. The network path was not found.'  I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I have also tried to go into NasNavigator2, but when I select my NAS and click 'browse' nothing happens.

 

So I though.... what if it's the firmware? So I tried updating it to the latest version. I turned of my firewall and punched the update button once it found my nas. After giving the password twice it started to send and receive data. After a couple of minutes it stopped with the message that the dates of the firmware were incorrect and that the firmware update possibly failed.

 

....

 

I tried again. But now it says that It couldn't confirm a response from the nas.

 

I am now stuck, awaiting for the calvary to march on and help me. (Or.... you guys :d )

 

Thanks in advance for any help I can get!

Also a little side question:

 

What is the best way to stream videos from your media server to your iPod Touch?

Another thing and you'll make my MONTH:

 

How can I optimize streaming since whenever I try to stream now it has to buffer endlessly on a LQ movie.Is this due to my router (g band, 100mpbs ports) and my wall plug leading to my nas (80 mbps)?

If I'd put a switchbox between my computer and nas (router -> wallplug -> switchbox) would this help? Computer is momentairly on g band wireless since I had to use my ethernet port for the NAS.

 

Also how can I schedule tasks? I want it to start downloading my (unfinished) torrents at 03:00, and stopping the downloads at 09:00. Is this possible.

 

Is webaccess 3.0 included in firmware 1.37?

 

How can I let iTunes see the movies on my NAS? Currently only the music files are showing up.

 

Thanks in advance!

Are we talking about the same unit now or a different one?

In order to get the best speed when transferring movies you want everything to be on gigabit (1000 mbps) and if anything is wireless, then it should be wireless N.  Web access 3.0 is indeed available on 1.37. And iTunes will not see movies.

can you schedule tasks?

I want it to start my unfinished torrents at e.g.  03:00 and to stop them at 09:00

Yes, you can schedule your torrents. You can schedule other things in the linkstation like wake up and sleep, backups, and raid checks (if your unit had raid).
