Thanks both :good:

I tried a live disc earlier, Ubuntu Studio, and it wouldn’t connect. I played around with it to make sure I hadn’t missed anything, but no joy. I can’t try Ed’s idea as Ellen’s using the internet for work, so I plugged a spare router in. It’s working perfectly.

I’m going to try connecting the spare router to the switch to give it internet for now, then connect the NAS to it so that at least I can get the backup done. Over wifi it was going to take about a week :wacko:

Obviously not ideal, but either my PSU or storage drive is starting to play up, so I need the backup done sooner rather than later.
