Hey, guess what Comcast Business routers are REALLY BAD at!

Apple Filing Protocol!

Guess what Time Machine uses!

Apple Filing Protocol!

Guess what giving a time machine backup server a fixed IP address makes the Comcast Business router insist upon trying to handle!

Apple Filing Protocol!

Guess what doesn't actually need and shouldn't get a fixed IP address after all maybe!

yeah.

Backups have been bringing the Murknet to its knees, and now I finally know why.

I hate to be a *snob* here, but typically ISP supplied routers are a bit... well shit. Totally worth doing the homework and getting a well regarded consumer router with alternate firmware.

That said, I lucked out with mine and my router *isn't* shit. I'd trade it for something like an edgerouter and a threepack of ubiquiti APs in a heartbeat tho.

Also, wouldn't you get name resolution through... what ever apple calls their mdns implimentation this week?
