R7000V2 ReadyNAS DLNA Not Working

I have been for some time using an R7000 (Ethernet WAN) in my home without problem. I have recently bought a DSL version and cannot get DLNA working. I have disabled "Enable Media Server" but this did not fix the problem.

Can anyone tell me why the R7000V2 seems to block DLNA on the three ReadyNAS?

Thanks

   Why?  Do you mean "D7000v2"?  Firmware version?  Connected to what?

   "seems"?  When you do what, exactly?  "seems to block" is not a
useful problem description.  It does not say what you did.  It does not
say what happened when you did it.  As usual, showing actual actions
(commands) with their actual results (error messages, LED indicators,
...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or interpretations.


   Based on no useful information, my first guess would be that the
D7000v2 (?) is doing nothing "to block DLNA on the three ReadyNAS".  Of
course, with my weak psychic powers, I know nothing about any of these
(unspecified) "three ReadyNAS" devices, or how they might be configured,
or what you're doing with anything, or why you might conclude that
anything is blocking anything.

 

   If you had been using an Rxxxx router, and are now using a Dxxxx
modem+router, then all your LAN IP addresses might have changed from
"192.168.1.*" to "192.168.0.*"  If you have any equipment which was
configured with (now mismatched) static IP addresses, then that might
explain some types of trouble.

Assuming you talk of a D7000v2 on a DSL WAN - avoid using the Ethernet WAN port marked LAN4(WAN) for anything that is using Multicast, e.g. UPnP SSDP, DLNA, ...
