I've struggled for hours with a new NLSU2. Even when connecting it directly to a PC on XP with the address 192.168.1.10, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.1.77 it wasn't possible to ping it. Browser wouldn't work either. The firewall is off and I'm logging in as admin. I then tried with a win2K PC and had the first page up. The the NLSU2 couldn't be connected to anymore, although the PC showed that the network is connected. Resets long and short won't help. Having spent some hour on the forums I realize that the NLSU2 is not up to the task of running for months in a remote location to store surveillance camera data, even if I were able to update the firmware. So now I'm looking for alternative ways of connecting one or two 500GB USB HDD in network storage. Suggestions welcome. The NLSU2 will go back to Linksys.
