Netcomm NF18ACV with Synology NAS

Post by jpurssey » Tue Jul 10, 2018 6:07 pm

I note that the Exetel ZTE modem had features for use with NAS disabled.

Is there any disabling on the Exetel Netcomm NF18ACV?

I am using a Synology DS214SE (and hoping to upgrade to a DS218+) which connects to modems via ethernet and for which some software it runs requires port forwarding. From the user guide it appears that limited port forwarding is possible, but it may be that the Exetel version does not have all the features of the commercial unit, in which case it may be worth spending the $140 on an unlimited unit or purchasing another gateway that is fully compatible.

Is there any information on the compatibility of the Exetel Netcomm modem/gateway with Synology NAS products?

Hi,

From the model number (DS214SE) we could see that you are using a Synology DiskStation.

Please note that the Netcomm 18ACV modem supports basic port forwarding.

You can refer the following for basic Port forwarding in Netcomm 18ACV modem.

In the meantime we will check with the modem manufacture (Netcomm) whether there is any compatibility issues for Synology devices since Synology uses some customized features such as SHR - Synology Hybrid RAID.

Exetel is following up this case via the reference number : 12950230

Thank-you.

No Netcomm modems are listed in the long list of Synology Diskstation compatible modems, though not all modems are tested.

Can you state that the Exetel supplied NF18ACV does not have any of the functions listed in the general user guide and specifications disabled?
