    Hi Uozzon86,
    This is a known issue and we also received the same bug reported from Tiscali.
    It will be fixed in the next firmware. You can check release schedule with Tiscali.

    Hello, I am having a similar problem with the same modem supplied by the same Italian Operator, namely Tiscali. The firmware revision is V5.50(ABRN.0)b5_20190923.
    I am connecting from Mac OS X 10.15.4.

    Here is the description of the problem:
    I am able to create a shared network folder and to access it by SMB protocol from the Finder.
    When I try to copy something to it, some files can be regularly copied, but with most of them I receive the error message that it is impossible to complete the copy operation because one or more elements can't be found (error code -43).
    There is no logic in it, it seems it depends on file size, but I was able to copy a 7mb file and a moment after a copy of a 300Kb file was refused.
    Can you help me? I will also try to contact Tiscali Customer Service.

    Hi Lorenzo_B,
    Try to rename all your files and folders without using capital letters before copying them to see if it can help you to solve the problem. But for the real solution, please contact Tiscali for the firmware release schedule.
