I’ve got quite some trouble since connecting a my cloud 3TB device to my network. I’m using a regular router with WLAN and some powerline adapters, so that my main PC’s can use a stable LAN cable connection instead of WIFI.
- Connectivity of PC’s with wired connection:
Ever since connecting the “my Cloud” my wired connections cannot access the internet anymore. The only connections that actually work are from the PC to the my Cloud drive (even with http). Also pinging works on internal devices. But neither outbound http, https or ftp seem to work. The PCs themselves do get IP addresses assigned by DHCP, but that’s about all.
- WIFI connections still ok:
Anything connecting using wireless LAN works as should. Which is strange as all traffic goes over the same router.
- Cloud access disabled, but still working:
Using the Web interface I’ve disabled cloud access on the “my Cloud”, as I only want the device to be a NAS in my internal network. I don’t want it to be available from outside my network. However using the smartphone myCloud App I can still access all my data from outside, it’s as if the setting has no effect at all.
This is quite frustrating as the device should really not be more than a Network shared drive. It should not be some monstrous software that takes over my whole network and punches holes into my NAT. Does anybody have any Idea what could be wrong?
