So I’ve just bought the RT2600 and attached a WD portable USB drive to it. It’s formatted for MacOS extended and everything is working great and very quickly for streaming to my AppleTV.
Hibernation must not be supported as logs show it’s waking up every ten minutes through the night. I can...
Not sure if this is the right forum, but I'll be looking for a new home network setup soon. Would the synology router or an ubiquiti setup be better for the jobs below?
1. Basic home networking. Streaming movies, music, accessing files on NAS.
2. Ease of setup with my Ds918 plus. I want to...
My Synology rt2600ac router's status light is flashing green. It never goes solid.
The manual says that this means "finding device". There's no USB or printer or anything connected.
I cannot access the device. http://192.168.1.1:8000 does not connect.
The other status lights seems to work...
so finally found a way to add my VPN account into my synology router
(network center > Internet > VPN Settings)
Now I wonder what about if I want it to enable only for certain devices (connected through wireless)?
Many thanks for hints!
I know I can put my DS918+ IP through a VPN, using my router, whilst letting everything else in my network run on the WAN connection. However I find that when I try to remotely stream media from my NAS on Plex or DS Video, it is very slow and laggy due to not being able to port forward. The VPN...
Got these today and set them up but seem to be having a major issue with the LAN port.
I had Google WiFi before and I plugged in a ethernet hub into each puck in each room. However when I plug in the hubs into the 2600ac and the 2200ac it does not work and the ethernet devices won't...
The update will be available for selected regions within the following weeks, although the release time in each region may vary slightly.
Added support for adding Wi-Fi points to a mesh Wi-Fi system via Ethernet cables during the...
I hope this thread doesn't devolve into a uPnP crucifixion discussion, that has been covered before.
But here goes.
For those of that you need for some reason to use the function in Synology NAS that opens uPnP ports - don't, use this alternative instead.
Some of you will be lucky and find that...
In this post I explained basically that I've joined the networks together in my house and 2 others of my family members. So even tough we live at our own places, we are on each other's network. Thats cool.
But I'm just wondering. I want to join another network (my parents-in-law) to our bigger...
I have a site to site VPN link using 2 RT2600AC routers. I'm curious whether the bandwidth management settings are applied to the VPN bandwidth as well?
If, for example, I max out my download bandwidth downloading to the SKY box (which has no limiting rules), will I still be able to download...
My current setup:
I have a SRM2600ac router and a couple of Netgear switches, one is a PoE switch for external PoE cameras. Those cameras record to a NVR (BlueIris) internally, those cameras and the NVR don't have a gateway address and they are also are set up in the firewall to be denied access...
On my rt2600, all of a sudden if I go to Control Panel / System / System Database, I'm seeing "Connection failed. Please check your internet connection" for the IP Geolocation Database, Threat Intelligence Database, Google Safe Browsing Database, and Domain Name Database.
Anyone else getting...
Has anyone set up or used an edgerouter and or pfsense/opnsense for an extra security with their rt2600ac?
Looks like a pretty powerful system and was wondering if anyone had this setup using their rt2600ac as the main gateway and the edgerouter for extra firewall protection...
Been researching a way to segregate iot devices onto my guest network without having to reenter all passwords onto devices. I have looked all over the net for an easy way to do this but can find anything.
I have the rt2600ac with several rt2200ac mesh routers. The rt2600 is my gateway. I don't...
Folks, I currently have a "dual router" setup on my home network, so I can have both VPN and non-VPN connections:
1st 192.168.0.1 - primary router (ie. connected to the internet service provider); wi-fi network that is non-vpn
2nd 192.168.1.1 - secondary VPN router (vpn configuration provided...
I seem to be going round in circles.
I have been using my BT Home router and its Dynamic DNS service to update my DDNS at No-IP.com. This allows me to utilise various apps (NextCloud, PLEX etc) on my home Synology NAS.
I have now moved to my own hosting site and have a...
I just got my Synology MR2200 to extend my network.
The problem is that I can't get through the system update. It always fails.
So, the blue light is blinking, I add the Wi-Fi point through SRM. And this is what happens next:
Then I clicked on Try again button, but no luck...
What you prefer speed-wise as a storage device for system database on a RT2600ac - USB stick or SD card
is there any penalty using any of the above devices compared to one another especially for threat prevention?
what you people use?
BTW this is an amazing forum, everybody here is super...
Hi - I am configuring Safe Access on my RT2600ac running SRM 1.2.3-8017 Update 4.
I am testing blocking sites on my own phone before I do it for my kids devices, and it initially does not block the sites. Then I realize I have my VPN on, and I turn it off and the sites are blocked.
