Just a quick question regarding external hard drives. I have 2 switches connected throughout my home network and a Sky router.
Can I connect a NAS to one of the switches to gain acces from all other networked devices, or do I need to connect directly to the router?

Just ellaborating-Does anyone have a media streamer running from a switch along with a NAS?
I wanted to know if there were any problems with the streamer accessing the NAS content if they are both running off seperate switches?

I have just plugged in a new 1TB Iomega clousd NAS and I can't get the thing to connect to the internet and it doesn't appear in the drop down list of UPnP devices? Have I spent cash on something that doesn't work with the Sky Broadband Box?

MrNel, we don't provide support configuring NAS devices and while they should work (I have one from a different manufacturer) you need to approach the manufacturer for support. If you have a question about whether a specific option can be configured on our router we can try to help however we can't advise which settings need to be configured for a particular device.

There should be no problem using multiple switches in your set up. If your NAS and media streamer are both using UPnP, then you may want to increase the number of UPnP hops in the Sky router (think it's in the advance tab). Think the default is 4 and I had problems with my Xbox and phone seeing the NAS until I increased this to 8.
