Then it's a good wireless connection.vards01 wrote:mega byte per second.
Ahh okay, I was a bit confused about the 600 Mbps number but that explains it. Borderline fraud isn't it...The marketing term became apparent on install 300mbps per channel i.e. 300mbps 2.4G / 300mbps 5G
Let's keep our fingers crossed.It is backup night tonight so we shall see.
At least one problem less to worry about.vards01 wrote:I have not received any further lan messages in the system logs on the NAS.
Maybe this laptop is better located in relation to the router and/or further away from any disturbances?On the one machine out of 4 that actually succeeded, the backup took a mear 30min for 18GB data, so if I could get all the machines working it would be a great solution...
Have you checked the radio environment? Maybe it's busy and there are other networks using the same channel so a change of channel could improve the situation?...I'm really loosing faith here in wireless connections, I'm also finding the new Netgear rather glitchy in maintaining wireless connection.
If the machines lose the connection frequently they will reconnect a little faster but DHCP shouldn't be a problem here so I'm afraid it won't improve the situation much. You really need to solve the problem with the dropped connections.Wondering if I would be better off using static IPs as oppose to DCHP.......
Yes since you also told us that your disks does spin down, maybe if Acronis have a very short timeout it will report the connection as failed before the disks are spun up and the NAS is able to respond? Check if there is a network timeout to adjust in Acronis. Another workaround than the one you're using now (which should be fine) is to disable disk spindown on the NAS.vards01 wrote:I have found that running a map network drive command/script pre backup has resulted in a 100% backup rate, this was yesterday evening. Acronis does have the function to address network location via username and password within but I am suspect that the time delay may result in failure, showing the network location not available error....
Yes. If other nearby wireless routers use the same (or adjacent) channels you will get interference. Also microwaves, cordless phones and other things can cause problems....or do you mean b / g / n channels?
Does R sync do full backups?
I want to keep 3 weeks of full backups on the NAS and delete full backups older than this.
Also running a script to shut down the laptop once backup is complete.
I have been using Acronis which I paid for 8 user licenses......their help is pretty useless so I'm looking for a solution that works and is free ideally.
I have looked at RSYNC which is Deltacopy on windows from what I can establish, not sure if this is what I am looking for as the configuration appears that you have to install on a server, is it possible to install this on the QNAP?
