Can Forum members please reply with details of ADSL2 Router/Modems (cable connection - no fibre here), that DO work with MyCloud Home drives.
I have tried several makes/models of ADSL Router/Modems. All but one (now out of production) do NOT work with the Home device. On those that do not work UPNP identifies the drive OK, but the blue light continues to flash, so it never connects to the Internet externally (even after hours of connection).
The one I have that works is an Archer D5 (TP-LINK 1200 - Annexe A). The ‘HOME’ drive connects to this without any problems. I have tried newer Netgear and TP-LINK devices, but with no success.
I might add, this is NOT operator error or ignorance on my part. For example the latest TP-LINK VR900 I tried yesterday has much the same User interface as the AC1200 model I have that works. All parameters were set the same. All running the latest Firmware. The VR900 identified the HOME drive in UPNP, but it never connects externally to the NET. Same problem with a new Netgear Nighthalk 7000 I tried a few weeks ago.
I have spent MANY hours trying different settings in desperation really, despite knowing the settings that work correctly with the AC1200.
Sooner or later my current AC1200 will ‘die’ no doubt, and as they are no longer made, I really need some information from people who know of Router/Modems they KNOW work OK with the drive. Being able to connect to the HOME drive is important to me.
Ideally a Dual Band version (2.4 GHZ and 5 GHZ WiFi), with two USB ports, but knowing of any that work would be good.
