Network unavailable

Post by benb » Thu Dec 06, 2012 8:48 pm

Hi all

I've got an odd problem with my IX4-200d

Despite being connected to my router, it constantly displays "network unavailable" and I cannot access it.

However, I know the NIC is OK, as when I connect my PC directly to the NAS I can access it.
I also know the router and the port are OK, because if I set the NAS network settings manually, (i.e. not DHCP) it registers on the network OK and I can access it as normal.

But - I need it to use DHCP, as when I do manual settings I can only access it by the IP and not the device name.

So either it is not requesting the DHCP properly from my router, or my router is not giving out the DHCP properly. I'm inclined to think it's the former, as every other device I have connects fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Ben

BTW, it was working fine the other day - the only thing that I have done since is swap out a failed drive.
