Re: Linkstation not getting out through my router?
- Mmm, I just started having facing this same problem, I'm not able to
make the linkstation go through the router, it works just fine
inside the LAN, but can get to the linkstation from the WAN. I was
blaming the router (D-Link), so I decided to try a different brand
(Netgear), no luck. Anyone else?
