Title: DNS-315: IP from router but won't appear in ShareCenter Setup or Storage Utility
Post by: wacky101 on August 20, 2013, 12:18:00 PM
The new DNS-315, with its hard drive installed, is powered up, with flashing white and stable orange LEDs. It's connected to a router, which is delivering an IP address of 192.168.1.20 via DHCP.

I can't interact with or setup my device, it seems.

(1) The device doesn't appear in the D-Link ShareCenter Setup Wizard. I've tried the wizard in both New and Repair modes. I've tried turning off Windows 7 Firewall. I've tried running the newest version of the wizard from the website. I've tried running in Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode with Admin rights.

(2) I've also tried using the D-Link ShareCenter Storage Utility standalone program. That program does not find the device.

(3) Accessing 192.168.1.20 on port 80 via a web browser doesn't work. The connection hangs and eventually times out.

I have also tried power-cycling the device. I've also tried resetting the device using the only method I could find (power+reset button method).

Please help! :(

I managed to resolve this. I had spent 7 hours diagnosing. Finally, what did it?
