Looking for some help/ideas from the brains trust;
I've recently rolled my own xpenology install onto an N54L, went well enough. Assigned it to a static IP rather than DHCP, and then hooked it up to a Ethernet over Powerline network at my parents place, and was it was reachable/highly contactable for both web-admin/file access across the network.
I've since then brought the server back to my own place, plugging it directly through ethernet into the modem/router, and now face intermittent contact issues to it. A lot of the time I will get an issue reaching either the shared folders (either from a laptop or PS3) or the web access, or if I do, the connection will inevitably drop-out.
The weird thing is though, accessing the Internet is still fine, i.e. at the same time as getting server can't be reached messages, I will be able to pull-up internet pages fine. So on paper, that would seem to rule out phsyical network connectivity issues between the devices, given that they all seem to still be talking to the modem/router fine, and the comm drop out specific to the server...?
