NAS wont show/connect on my DIR-842


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>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?

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!

Glad you fix it. Enjoy.  ;)
