Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Recently, we got a case reported by one end-user that he failed to connect his Synology NAS DS918+ to the Archer AX6000 with Link Aggregation enabled.

 

As per customer said, the network diagram is Modem—Archer AX6000 (port 2&3)—(port 1&2) NAS (Synology DS918+). With his smartphone connected to the AX6000, he is not able to access the NAS unless he disconnects one of the two ethernet cables.

 

With further analysis, we solved his case by changing the Link Aggregation mode from “Adaptive Load Balancing” to “Balance XOR” on his NAS.

 

If you have a similar issue, it is worth a try to change the Link Aggregation mode to “Balance XOR”.

 

You can refer to the articles attached below to get more details about the Link Aggregation configuration:

Hello,

 

I have a DS1819+ and it doesn't have an XOR mode. What other solutions does TP-Link provide? It is not normal for TP-Link to sell you a router with the link aggregation option, and then not work, or be compatible, with LACP.

 

Thank you!

Actually, to promote Link Aggregation should work with LACP Mode 

but it is not, please improve

 

- Option 2: Doesn't work

- Option 3: Work instead

@Solla-topee I also vote for this resolution. I ran into the same issue and now my NAS works only with Balance XOR setting. Thank you for looking into the issue.

Just tried to setup Link aggregation with my DS918 and the same router, same problem! and if you visit the tp link specs page for this router they clamed to support LACP 802.ad and it just doesn't work.
This is the second tp link product where I run into issues ...

Can you please point out where did you find the tp link specs page for this router they claimed to support LACP 802.ad? We may need to review that, thank you.

 

BTW, can we have some screenshot about the settings on the DS918 that you have changed, then we can check further?
