I've been having trouble with my NAS recently, most noticeably on my Surface, and I've assumed it was the recent Win10 update causing yet more fun-and-games with SMB1 devices.
It'll be fine, then the share drops off, or the NAS disappears from the Network list, and watching videos via my VR headset has been ... um .. difficult, with pauses, and black areas, and so on.

But ... I have no idea why, but I checked the Sky box and somehow it's using the same IP as the NAS: 192.168.0.11
Which shouldn't be possible, given they are both on the same router, albeit Sky via WiFi and NAS via CAT5. Only I can access the NAS setup page on 192.168.0.11 from a browser via wire or WiFi ... Confused | :confused:

Find the Skybox MAC, unplug it, add a router rule to switch it to 192.168.0.99 so it's well and truly out of the way and ... everything looks like it works again, and runs smoother and faster.

Except my Amazon Fire TV stick, which is still running like a stunned slug on Mogadon moving through treacle. But it's seven years old, so I can kinda forgive that: nobody thinks about old devices when they update software these days - a new one will be here today and that should fix that anyway.

But that's very odd - how the heck did they get - and keep! - the same IP addresses? Dunno, and probably never will find out.
