Hi Thanks for the reply but I do not think this is the problem. As not only do torrents not download but you can't open torrents using the url and must add by browsing to the file. Also when clicking check for updates it says it cannot contact the server.
Is there a way to get the nas to ping an external address (e.g. google or something) to prove this is the problem. Also if someone could give me advice on what settings I can paste on here and maybe identify something that has been incorrectly set?
I was thinking of buying something like the hp n40l microserver to replace the ready has anyone done something similar and do they think it is a good idea? (I'm thinking it will be easier to manage and should be able to do more complex stuff e.g. transcoding)
