Two Problems with SmartStor NAS - Limited Connectivity and Unavailablility
Posted on 2008-10-22
I recently purchased a Smartstor NS4300N with 4x 1TB drives. The unit came with no cd but sent me to the website where I downloaded the setup file.
When everything was loaded up and switched on I get a message in my taskbar on the network icon saying
I have "limited or no connectivity"
I'm connecting to the NAS via a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller
Even though I was getting the message the NAS was working fine until after a period of inactivity it decided to become unavailable.
Now I'm a complete newbie when it comes to NAS so can anyone help me with these two problems?
I'm running Windows XP with all the latest updates on a Dell Precision 390.
