I need help setting up the My Cloud device. I currently cannot connect via the app as it give a network connection error and access to the device is terribly slow.
My configuration is as follows:
I have a D-Link DSL2750U ADSL modem/router (internet gateway) that is connected to my PC via ethernet cable
From the D-Link router I have a Billion Bipac 7401 VGP r1 connected via Ethernet cable in my lounge, the setup is a LAN-LAN, i.e. the first router (D-Link) has an IP address of 10.0.0.2, the second router (Billion) which is connected to the first via ethernet cable is 10.0.0.3 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
I have set a static IP address for the My Cloud device (which is connected to the Billion router via Ethernet cable) of 10.0.0.9 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0
None of these routers are Gigabit capable but I don’t know how important this is as I intend on accessing media on the My Cloud via mobile and streaming to a Google Chromecast which uses the Billion routers WiFi network. I won’t be accessing the My Cloud from my PC most of the time.
I need some advice on what I may be doing wrong as connection to the My Cloud does not currently work from my Android (network error 904). Some tips on speeding up the access to the device would also be appreciated as its currently not really usable with its current configuration.
