I have been going through a learning process trying to get my personal cloud to work as I wished. The cloud kept disappearing and I could not attach a powered hub. I have come to accept that I cannot use a hub. The cloud was apparently working fine so I began loading it with data. Yesterday we had a thunder storm while we out and when I got home I discovered we had no network; therefore, no Internet. A circuit breaker had tripped so the router had no power. I reset the circuit breaker and all seemed well. Not so - the router had reassigned IP addresses. Now the shortcut I had for the Cloud dashboard no longer works and I cannot figure out how to correct it. The My Cloud app on the computer goes to the old address which is now incorrect. The network is happy but I cannot get at the Cloud other than through File Explorer.
How can I correct the addresses for dashboard and My Cloud?
If I use the dashboard to go to a static IP address, how do I correlate it with the router? Do I do one and gthen the other or will one find the other?
What other questions should I be concerned with?
