  1. Network and removable storage mapping and connectivity issues


    Hey all,

    I'm posting this here because it pertains to both network and storage, and because I'm honestly not even sure how to search for this.... so here goes:

    I've got a Synology DS213j as my NAS which I've mapped to my machine to access one of the drives within the unit (Drive D: ) and my music folder (Drive M: ). I've also got a Thermaltake BlackX 2.0 (referred to from here as "toaster") with two drives which I've respectively lettered Y: and Z:.

    The two removable drives are not mapped and are being used as removable photo storage.

    The problem I'm having is:
    When I boot my computer with the toaster powered on Y: replaces D: in windows explorer (the explorer menu shows the drive is STILL disconnected and it recognizes that D: and M: are supposed to be network mapped), but M: stays as is:

    When I cycle the power on the toaster D: connects as it should, but Y: is reassigned the drive letter E:

    I've got the NAS set up to automatically reconnect at login, and haven't had any issues with that happening. I'm wondering if it's merely a network latency issue and Windows is forcing another drive into the slot that's supposed to be there permanently. If that's the case: how do I stop that from happening?

    I know the simple answer is "only power the toaster when you use it", but I feel like there's a fix that will allow me to keep the toaster powered on.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Network and Connectivity Issues

    I recently got a new PC but every time I connect to the internet on that PC alone it shuts off the wifi for the entire house. It's only when I connect on the new PC. Every time I reset the internet it just shuts off again on when I connect on the new PC.
    I restored the PC thinking that it may have been a virus but it continues to happen even after the reset. Again it makes it so I or anyone else for that matter cant connect to wifi in the house because it seems to disable it.

    Network and removable storage mapping and connectivity issues

    You do know that the Synology tools work a lot better for when you want to access and sync between computer and the NAS. You need to decide if you want to map a folder as a drive or link to a folder on the NAS. Two different things. There is no latency issue that you think is causing what you are seeing, nor is Windows doing any forcing another drive into a slot, for whatever that means.

    Just make sure that you have the IP of the NAS, the NAS is set as Static on it, and that you have your username and password in Windows Credentials.

    I have the DS216+II and have upgraded the RAM to 4GB, which makes a huge change, along with running Seagate Enterprise drives and a Fantom 3TB for backup on eSATA. My speeds on Wifi perform just as well as it does when connected via Ethernet.

  5. The Synology tools won't work for what I need to do. I want to maintain that folder (Music) mapped as a drive (M). It's on a separate physical disk within the NAS unit it's self than "KMB-CBD" and is the only folder on that drive I want ready access to in the way I have it. The only reason I mentioned that folder is because it's remained properly connected no matter what sequence I use to power up my machine. And when I say windows is "forcing another drive into that slot" I mean that Windows, for some reason, is changing drive Y to drive D but never changing the information from D (name, location, etc.)

    I'm not having issues connecting to the NAS at all. I'm having issues with the drive letters rearranging within Windows.
