    Ted, I vaguely remember that... I have the address and PW written down.
    Tomorrow I will check that out.   Thanks for the education.    Jim

    Your IP mask could be limiting the number of addresses.  Normally it should be giving you 255 possible local addresses.  This will be in your router where the router's base address is defined, like
    Your Network Attached Storage should NOT be assigning local addresses.  Log into that and make sure that DHCP is not checked.

    Thanks, John. I will log in and check that. I had not considered the storage drive originally.  Why it became a source of problems is a mystery to me.
    Lots to do today.    Jim

    Last night I reconnected the cloud drive and disconnected the Arlo cameras.   Still worked OK.
    Then just to have another data point, I reconnected the Arlo cameras so all nodes were again connected - original configuration. To my surprise, it worked... it should have failed.
    So this morning I fired up the Flex and its PC and it failed to boot SSDR.  Disconnecting the cloud drive or the Arlo cameras had no effect. The only way to get the network going again was to reboot the Netgear Nighthawk Hot Spot.   I suppose that caused it to send out new IP addresses?

    So taking your advice, I logged into the Hot Spot to see all of the nodes, their IP addresses and MAC addresses. I wrote down each one and found there are no conflicts for either IP address or MAC address, each one is unique.
    The system is functional right now with the cloud drive disconnected and all other items connected. I rebooted the Flex and its PC many times with no failures.
    I'll leave it that way for today and see if it boots tomorrow morning. I rarely use the cloud drive and could leave it disconnected unless I needed to restore a file some day.
    Thanks again,   Jim
