When the manual said providing a dedicated ethernet line to my B800I was a good idea, I tried to put it off and since last summer, everything was fine. Then the network got busy and the interrupts suffered for it. Soon it was a mess and I installed a nice two port NIC. One port went to supporting the LAN and it came right up. The other port was for our B800I.
I disconnected the B800I from the LAN, connected it to the NIC and it was not recognised at all. Settings on the Drobo are:
Port 1 (Network) / Port 2 (Drobo only)
192.168.1.210 / 192.168.2.220
192.168.1.1 / 192.168.1.1
255.255.0.0 / 255.255.0.0
I am running Windows 8.1 (10 was a bust). I switched off the Firewall and still nothing. When I plugged in the old network again, it reappeared. The new connection just isn’t flying. Do I need a crossover cable?
Needless to say I’ve tried a LOT of things not mentioned and nothing had any useful effect. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
