I have been running a weird issues on my network for the past few weeks, if not months with wireless being flaky at times. A few of the symptoms were sporadic disappearances of ReadyNAS NV+ shared NAS folders.
Then I started running onto Time Machine backup issues, i.e. Time Machine would simply refuse to see ReadyNAS
I’ve been trying to tweak WRT610N settings, turned AFP, NFS and CIFS protocols on/off for the backup share on ReadyNAS. Tried stopping and starting Time Machine daemons on the NAS, force mounting NAS shares, all of them. Nothing helped.
Until I turned off N network.
I now fear that these issues are stemming from a very nasty inconsistency of how WRT610N bridges the B/G and A/N adapter networks. It would seem that this bridging somehow causes issues for the NAS and for Time Machine especially. More specifically it applies to running N-network on the 5GHz band. The 2.4GHz seems to be OK, causes no issues.
