There is a difference between not being able to connect to the My Cloud, and being able to connect and access the My Cloud remotely, but have it disconnect.
Again, what software or program are you using to connect to the My Cloud remotely from your work?
Have you checked that the My Cloud has “internet access” via the Dashboard > Settings > Network > Network Profile > Status field.
It is a bit difficult for we users to help diagnose the issue and provide possible solutions without more information. It helps to provide as much information as possible like; what steps have you tried to solve the problem, what is your local network setup, is the My Cloud using a static IP or DHCP, does the My Cloud indicate an internet connection, what software (and their versions) are you using to access the drive remotely, can the unit even be accessed remotely.
It is possible to roll back to an earlier firmware version. But please note that rolling back to a prior firmware version may break remote access using the latest WD software, apps and MyCloud.com web portal. See the following thread in particular my post in that thread with links to older firmware versions.
If you can SSH into the My Cloud. You can look at the daemon.log and daemon.log.1 files.
When the network goes down a message is logged to this file saying the following:
2016-01-19T17:47:13.747137-05:00 di=WfOf5hjVLP info ifplugd(eth0): Executing ‘/etc/ifplugd/ifplugd.action eth0 down’
When the network comes back you will get the following:
2016-01-19T17:47:50.651920-05:00 di=WfOf5hjVLP info ifplugd(eth0): Executing ‘/etc/ifplugd/ifplugd.action eth0 up’
Notice the date and time of the network going down. I caused these messages to be logged by pulling the network cable. If your network is going down as often as you say it is you should see a lot of these messages.
I was trying to see what happens when the network is down and you try to access the dashboard. If the network is down. When you try to access the dashboard you will see in the tab connecting with the arrow going round and round. If the network is up and apache2 is not running you will get the usual try again box.
I didn’t have an issue. I was just posting information to help gather data about the failure. Have you checked the daemon.log file. You need to know if your network is dropping its connection. Or is it something else that is causing your disconnects.
sorry guys, all i done was reserve an ip address on my router for the WD cloud, in my opinion you have good power ups and bad power ups… my system has now been running for 12 months constantly and not had any problems i stream 4 k content from it at home and save my work to it from work, it is a great product and this was a problem i only faced because i lacked the knowledge to assign it an IP
