I have a similar problem. There is a reset pinhole switch just beneath where the Ethernet port is that if you push it is supposed to reset the drives name and switch it to DHCP. You can see this in the manual. Unfortunately, this hasn't worked for me and I'm working through another solution to see if I can find the IP it is attached to.

I had to replace my router and I now cannot see the dlink enclosure. I wanted to get the IP so I can reconfigure the IP address but like I said I cannot seem to get the device to show up on my belkin...


You can try a couple of things, easy thing is to reset the NAS server by unplugging it and allowing it release its leased IP address, assuming that it is setup for DHCP. Once this is reset it should grab another IP address. If you remenber setting it up for a static IP, then you could do a google search for an IP scanner http://www.radmin.com/products/utilities/ipscanner.php or find one that you are comfortable with download and install look for device on your network that will give you your IP to the NAS server. Good luck

My Black Armor NAS keep changing its IP address and can't be accessed most of the time on the network. Hw can i fix this


Configure your network's DHCP-server to *ALWAYS* give the *SAME* IP-address to the NAS -- use the (unique) MAC-address of the NAS's network-adapter to assign a "static" or "fixed" IP-address to the NAS.

Mapping of D-link DNS-323 drive doesn't succeed.


I had the same problem when I was attempting to map the drive using the hostname of the DNS-323. I solved the problem by typing in the IP address instead. Do the following:

1. Login to the DNS-323 as admin
2. Make sure you use static IP's to make sure that the address does not change in the future.
3. Go to the drive mapping page and use IP address instead of hostname in the drive mapping (e.g. \\192.168.1.1\Volume_1)
4. Make sure you use a valid username and password.
5. Check the connection configuration by clicking on the Test button.

You should get a successful outcome, otherwise check all the settings again until you are successful

Can't find the IP address of the Maxtor Shared storeage II drive.


Download and install Wireshark(www.wireshark.org) on your PC. Attach the storage box and your PC and nothing else to a switch. Start a capture and you'll start to see all of the packets that your PC sees on its network interface. They will include a column for source address. The one that doesn't match your PC has to be the storage box.

If this doesn't help, connect the two devices directly together(you'll need a crossover cable if your PC NIC doesn't support MDIX and try the Wireshark capture again - this WILL work. The first option is dependent on the storage box sending out some sort of broadcast packets which is likely but not certain.

NAS Drive by ADS Tech not recognized on network.


You can log into your router and find out what IP address has been assigned to your NAS unit.

Then start up Internet Explorer Or Firefox and go to the address http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (replace with the IP address of the NAS unit).

That should get you in. Then you will have to set the workgroup and share parameters. Once you have it setup you can always map the NAS unit and use it as a external hard drive.

I have a d link DES-1105. cant get more than one computer to work on hub/switch.


Hi!
Unfortunately, hubs or switches cannot be use to share internet access specially if it's connected to a modem. To share internet access, you will need a router. If you prefer not to use a router, you can enable ICS (Internet Connection sharing) on one PC and share internet access to the others. However, the PC that will share internet access will need two ethernet cards (or LAN cards).

Your setup will look like this:

If internet is not a concern, and you just want to connect the computers to share files and resources, you will have to se your computers to static IP. You do not need any additional device - just connect your computers to the hub, setup a static IP on all the computers.

If you need further assistance setting up static IP on the computers, please reply and I'll give you the step by step instruction for that.

For any setup, a router will be the best option.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Unable to see Shared Storage Drive II on EasyManage via Wireless


Just got a Maxtor Share II drive and absolutely love it. Setting it up was a pain especially when the drive didn't remember the Administrators password.
Here's what I think the problem may be

1-Your router is not assigning an IP address to the drive
2-Make sure your router is configured to DHCP IP configuration not Static.
3-Before trying to use the drive make sure to install the Software/Drivers first.
Other suggestions

This may or may not apply to you. I got my Maxtor drive on 4-07-08 and from previous experiences with other computer products, ie, windows software, printer drivers, etc. The manufacturer in order to rush things out the cd software that comes with the product is not the final version and most likely the software already has an update on the manufacturer’s web site so it’s always good to check before committing to what you get on the CD. So sure enough the BIOS for my Maxtor Share II 500Gig hard drive was already old. I downloaded the new version upgraded the BIOS and my drive is working great. I hope this suggestions help. Enjoy your drive. Alfredo.

Can't assign ip configuration to NAS 208


Probably the NAS got the same IP address of the router/switch. Something like 192.168.1.1. Try changing your router default IP address to 192.168.1.3. Look for the NAS now.
