Has anyone else experienced my problem?
I recently change my ISP (yesterday) so over night my line dropped and my network had no internet access.
I was expecting this and knew I had an email from my new ISP to change the setting on my router. This should have been a 2 minute job.
However, I store my emails on my ex4100 and guess what I couldn’t access the share that stored my emails. I rebooted the PC I was accessing from, I attempted to access the share from different PC’s and I rebooted the ex4100 several times. But each time I tried to access the share it would reject the connection.
I could access the web interface, I could connect via FTP; but FTP still would not let me access the datafiles on the shares.
Frustrated I eventually worked out that perhaps my failure to connect could have something to do with
the lack of internet access (the ex4100 has been in place for about 6 month and working without error or problem) so I decided to reconfigure my router to use my mobile phone via tethering.
Hay presto, I could access my shares again.
Whilst I have resolve my problem for now, I am VERY worried about why the EX4100 was denying me access to MY SHARES and MY DATA when IT did not have internet access. There is NO reason for this. It’s my data and should be standalone
So what is going on?
Thanks in advance
