ETHERNET REPEATER PROBLEMS WITH RX-V2065 RECEIVER
I have a Network Attached Storage drive (NAS) attached to my network router. All security is disabled on the NAS because it is on the secure side of my router.
I have a RX-V2065 receiver on another floor which prevents me from installing a Cat-6 cable between my router and the receiver.
I want to install a simple Ethernet Repeater between the receiver and my router but the receiver will NOT properly connect to the NAS thru an Ethernet Repeater.
All equpment on the network can be pinged from any location on the network without problems or error.
Has anyone SUCCESSFULLY installed an Ethernet Repeater between their RX-V2065 Receiver and their home network to access their music library on a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device?
If so, HOW??? I've spend SEVERAL DOZEN HOURS over the past couple of years troubleshooting this problem.
Here's what I've done:
I've confirmed I can easily access Internet Radio Stations on the Receiver thru an Ethernet Repeater, therefore I know all of my network addressing is correct.
However, when I attempt to access my NAS (also thru the Ethernet Repeater), I get an "ACCESS ERROR" message from the RX-V2065 receiver.
The problem is NOT with any NAS configuration settings, because I can easily access the NAS with several Windows PC's (XP and Win-7) or even my Android smart-phones with wifi uplinked to my router.
I've verified this problem on three different Ethernet Repeaters. I've used two different LInksys/Cisco WAP54G units (re-configured as Ethernet Repeaters) and I've also tried an IO-Gear GWU627.
Thru any of them, I can easily play any Internet Radio station and I can easily "see" folders and files on my NAS.
However, when I attempt to PLAY any MP3 stored on the NAS, the Yahama receiver gives an "ACCESS ERROR" message.
In addition to pinging equipment, I"ve verified the Ethernet Repeater link is good by substituting the RX-V2065 for a couple of other hard-wired Ethernet Devices (X-Box, laptop computer with wifi radio disabled and a Wii game console).
They all work perfectly thru all three of the Ethernet Repeaters.
Only the Yahama receiver has problems operating thru an Ethernet Repeater and ONLY when accessing my NAS.
Lastly, if I bypass the Wireless Repeater link with a 75' Cat-6 cable stretched between the RX-V2065 and my router, it will play music off of the NAS flawlessly.
Certainly, somebody MUST have done this before !!
