My Cloud Ex 2100 takes a long time to load after firmware update

I recently updated to firmware 2.31.149 after a prolonged period of not using my cloud (i’m travelling for work again) and now when I first log in I can’t interact with it. It doesn’t show GB free, I can’t click on users, apps, settings, etc, there’s no network activity or apps. After a few minutes it finally loads. It didn’t used to take this long and I’m wondering is there any way to speed this up or do I just need to log in and wait for it to be ready for use now?

See the dedicated EX Series subforum where people more familiar with the EX 2100 may be able to assit and where one can search (using the forum search feature - magnifying glass icon upper right) for past discussions similar to your issue.
