NAS wont show/connect on my DIR-842
« on: December 26, 2016, 01:38:38 AM »

My old router died, and I am now a happy owner of a D-link DIR-842 Wifi router.
But my NAS (cable connected Lacie CloudBOX), will not connect/show up on the network, and I cant figure out why!  :o

I have tested the NAS at my neighbours, and it connects fine.  ;)

I have no idea what to do  ??? ::)

Link>Welcome!


  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Does the NAS have a static IP address set on it or is it set to auto obtain an IP address?
Check the LAN cable between the NAS and this router.
Try a different port on the back of the DIR router.
IS the NAS the only device that doesn't connect or get an IP address?

 ;D
The problem is solved, the root to the problem was of course my self.
I had, a long time ago, set the NAS to IP 192.168.1.x - the D-link DIR-842 DHCP is default set to 192.168.0.x

setting the D-link DHCP to 192.168.1.x allowed me to access the NAS and again was able to change the NAS settings.

The D-link DIR-842 is doing a great job.  :)
Thanks for the help and interest in my issue!
