I've faced with a bit uncommon situation related to E4200 and its firmware updates and hope someone has any ideas on this matter.
I've a NAS (Lacie Wireless Space) with latest firmware (1.1.5) and this device connected to my home network through wireless connection. Two services were published in Internet (HTTPS and FTP) via E4200 port mapping function. Plus torrent client onboard of this NAS downloads somehing from time to time.
Everything was fine until I didn't decide to update firmware on E4200 (it was migration from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 for the first time). Update procedure was done accordingly to official guide (with all needed reset steps). What was started after this:
- port mapping doesn't work;
- torrent activity doesn't work as well.
Internally NAS is visible and available to access.
I revert to 188.8.131.52 in order to simlify my life but thought maybe some kind of bug was in 184.108.40.206 so further firmware will have a fix.
Recently CIsco-Linksys had released 220.127.116.11 and I decided to upgrade again. In a few words - the same story. Possibly it's a kind of problem with Lacie device but I tried to open the case with their tech-support - nothing in particular, just a common recommendations to fix this problem. Tried to read log files from Lacie - some kind of errors were there but nothing significant what can help.
My E4200 parameters:
WAN IP: static, IPv4
UPnP: enabled (diabled was tested as well)
QoS: enabled (disabled was tested as well but it's rather outgoing traffic option)
IPv6: disabled all the time
If somethig requires more details - please, let me know.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for reply!
It doesn't seem that my problem has any connection to yours.
Each time I've made IP reservation in DHCP settings for NAS (after reset did the same) in order to avoid your situation. Internally I can conect to FTP/HTTPS running on NAS. Externally - no.

Well, try to disable the SPI Firewall Protection and uncheck Filter Anonymous Internet Requests in the router. Try to enable the DMZ feature that allows one network device to be exposed to the Internet. Then check the connectivity status..

Also tried to do this (SPI disable + other options deactivation) - no changes..
Besides, all these steps were done separately as well as in complex. It seems to me like some kind of new network feature in E4200 which doesn't supported by Lacie Wireless Space.
Reverted to 18.104.22.168 as most stable firmware at the moment.
Thanks to all for your suggestions!
