Acer easystore H340 - Ethernet port failed - can I just plop my 2 drives into another H340? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Looks like the Ethernet port on my Acer easystore H340 WHS has failed. The little box seems to boot up OK, and all the various lights do what they are supposed to do *except* for the network LED. 

    I see that I can buy another H340 on eBay and also, there is a vendor who supplies refurbished H340's for $200. 

    Can I just plop my 2 drives into another H340 box and expect it to work right away? Or is there something else I would have to do?

    BTW, I may first try using a USB ethernet adaptor - following the instructions at this page:

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,

  • Yes, you should be able to swap the drives into a new unit.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
