    Hi,

    I have an external harddrive connected to my Airport Extreme that i access on my MBP as a sharepoint. I have been tampering with my network and now it just randomly unmounts itself. I also experience sudden short (1 or 2 second) connection dropouts on my wireless devices and then they reconnect.
    Any ideas on where to look to solve this?

    Could you perhaps give more info on how the network is set up and what you fiddled with? And also, how the router is placed, distance between it and your devices, and obstructions in the path, such as walls?

    Hi, Its seems to a permissions issue. What i find strange is that my remote disk (I named it AppleTV) shows up not as a disk but as a sharepoint (is that normal? don't know what that means, see pic) Screen_Shot_2017-03-09_at_19_40_46.png


    When i try to copy files to it i get this error:

    and then sometimes the disk (or should i say sharepoint?) just unmounts itself

    I tried to fix its permissions with BatCHMOD and i granted full read, write and execute permissions on volume level including all contained folders but it does not help:

    i can't copy files over now without it protesting that i do not have permissions to do so.
    What can i do??
    UPDATE: it seems filesize has something to do with the problem. I can copy a few Kb txt-file but a 1,2Gb movie file gives permission issues
