That is true if it is a gigabit switch/router, however cat5 is fine if your network is still fast ethernet (100 megabit).mdgm wrote:Use Cat5e or newer. Cat5 is too old.

I am not convinced either.Silas73 wrote:A. NAS duo works fine if DHCP is set to defaults and connected to a dynamic jack.
B. If the DHCP is forced to the static IP address, gateway, and mask provided by my network experts and plugged into the static jack they've set up, the NAS connects for 10-20 s, then drops the connection, as described in Case 19159820. They've concluded the NAS is defective, but I'm not yet convinced.

Of course it could be an intermittent problem with the NAS NIC interface (possibly related to ethernet signal quality). Though it could also be an issue with the router NIC (which would be much luckier, since the router is cheaper to replace).
Do you have a switch you could put between the router and the NAS? Or maybe try cabling the NAS to a different router port?
