Ah, sorry. My problem was with a Synology NAS with a LAN connection to the Internet box and not a USB connection. Sorry if I caused any confusion. But I had tried every possible combination of file sharing protocol and it seemed to make no difference.
I had a similar problem with Big Sur and my Synology NAS. Time Machine kept failing with various errors. After much investigation it turned out that the combination of NAS, WiFI, Big Sur and Norton was provoking the issue. I ascertained that if I disabled Norton, Time Machine would run correctly. It was strange as there was no problem with the same version of Norton beforehand. It was very annoying, making my new NAS useless. I spent hours on the phone with Norton as they run various tests but simply said the problem would be passed to engineering but nothing happened. So I removed Norton and installed the trial version of F-Secure. All has been working great for 6 months. Robert
Comment je peux être sur que Internet Guard marche tous le temp. Il n'y a pas d'indication positive. J'ai jamais vu un site bloqué. Et deuxième question - J'ai installé Norton Safe Web sur mon Mac. Est-ce que c'est inutile avec Internet Guard??? Merci pour vos réponses. Robert
Thanks Antoine for your advice. I finally gave up on my Zyxel (shame as it was only 2 years old). I visited my local Swisscom shop to buy the tp-link T1500G pre-configured by Swisscom. And it works just fine, just changed the password and that's it. I can now access all features throughout my house! Pity Swisscom tech support could not have given a better indication when I contacted them over 1 year ago. Thanks again Robert
Thank you @AntoineBD,
Sorry I took so long, but I decided to upgrade my Zyxel switch to the latest firmware before trying out your suggested solution with VLAN 1977.
However, it took me some time because the default IP address was 192.168.1.1 and it proved difficult to reach the WEB configurator. Happily, I found a post on REDDIT which helped me set the IP address to 192.168.1.2. Then I successfully upgraded the firmware. And it seems to work fine.
However, I can find nothing in the configuration option in the WEB configurator that look anything like your suggested changes. Pity.
Maybe I should buy the Swisscom switch, but it does seem to be a rather old tp-link device.
Ah, interesting information. I do indeed have a Xytel switch in between the Internet box and the WLAN box. I will look into it when I have some time. But it still does not excuse the fact that Swisscom tech support did not know that a switch between the two boxes could cause such a problem. I would have thought that would be relatively common configuration. But thanks for the lead. Robert
In case someone else arrives here. It turns out, from Swisscom technical support, that the Guest WiFi network simply does not work on the WLAN box. WLAN box is only 5Gz and Guest Network is only 2.4Gz !!!
I have enabled the Guest Network feature on my Internet-2 Box. I also have a WLAN Box (extender). The main WLAN network performs correctly from (in range of) either box. But the Guest network only works via the Internet-2 box. When only in range of the extension box it says it has a self assigned IP address and no Internet access. Would be nice if the Guest network worked everywhere the main network worked. Is this a feature, a bug or a config error.
