Make sure the device is connected to your network then try this:

1. Try to ping the device using a PC connected to the same network.
2. If you are using DHCP, your device may just have been assigned a different IP. Try to ping all devices in your network or use a network scanner (e.g. SoftPerfect) to find out the IP address given to it.
3. Once you get the IP address, assign a static IP address to your device that is beyond the DHCP scope. This will ensure that your IP does not change and you will not have a conflict with DHCP assigned IP's.

Cannot access documents on dns-313

I'd try two things. Boot in Safe Mode with Networking and disable all firewalls, see if you find the NAS. Your issues sure screams firewall configuration to me.

Hello wal4,

Is your HDD-LED solid green when you connect the device with a LAN cable and solid blue if an USB cable is used?
If so, then you may not have the appropriate firmware installed to your NAS. Do the following steps:
1.: Insert the CD which comes with the device
2.: Disable all firewalls (if you are afraid of disabling your firewalls, unplug your PC from internet and plug it into your 313 device... I did the same.
3.: Put HDD into the device. All data will be erased!!!
4.: Start Click n connect, follow the on-screen instructions (I didn't remember which option to choose when it asks what to do, maybe new HDD installation, but I had to format my HDD to get it working.

An interesting fact that was told me by a D-Link customer care guy here in Hungary:
DNS-313 do not store firmware in an onboard chip, it stores on the HDD. This is why you cannot use the device's GUI and network solutions. You have to format the HDD BY DNS-313, so click n connect will be able to install firmware to your HDD...

If you...
- haven't got a hardware problem and
- use the CD which comes with the device (there are many hardware versions and it is not easy to select the right one even if you know which is yours because there are exceptions. You can make the right decision ONLY if you know the HW version AND the serial No. You should then check at D-Link's website which firmware version will be OK for you).
- have an HDD which is compatible with the device you might not have any problems.

When I access the DNS-313 via it's Web interface and try to schedule a backup, the TEST URL fails. Do I need IIS & FTP installed on each (XP PRO) PC to be backed up ? Is there a 'user-friendly' way to...

This may happen because it cannot find the hostname of your device. Do the following:

1. Make sure your device is configured to use a Static IP address
2. Type in the IP address (instead of hostname) in the test page

This should fix your problem

Hello, I just bought DNS-323 and trying to start up it. I?m using one hard drive Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3500630AS SATA 3G HDD 500G. I installed it in HDD1 slot and start the system. DNS-323 received...

I read that there are problems in some applications if you use only one disk in the 323. Try to move your disk to the other slot to see if this fixes your problem. Alternatively (if u have the money), you can try buying another hard disk of same brand/model and install it on the other slot.

You can then try setting up your device as a RAID1 or bigger (not recommended) JBOD configuration

Used HP Netservers

Of course they're still useful to someone. Sounds like i'd start with craigslist or ebay. Some of the servers will be heavy, so be sure to list that shipping from wherever you are to them is paid by the bidder. If you can, maybe you should try testing out the equipment to see if any of it works.

For example, Just the first entry sells new for 350, and used for about 175. You'll easily pick up 70-130 on ebay for these. In fact, I could use some of that equipment :-)

Finally the DNS problems I had with connecting my PS3 to my network has been resolved. I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me (and I know someone else mentioned it in an other post here), was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. Voila... I am upgrading my PS3 software as I write this.... ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

Excange server

It is a design problem. Check whether the DNS Server is working properly or not. Seems you will have to do a good work around. Go through the microsoft KBs with the event IDs
