    I need to communicate with someone who has experience connecting an iSCSI SAN D-Link's DSN-1100 to a laptop with a NIC card. I already have the documents that were just sent to me. They do NOT answer my questions.

  • cutch Jun 28, 2009

    The documentation askes me to enter in an IP address of 192.168.1.1 and when I do that it takes me to a router setting (not to the DSN-1100) and asks for username and password

  • cutch Jun 28, 2009

    I have no router in the configuration. The computer is connected directly to the DSN-1100 with a network cable. The setting for the router must have been saved in the settings when I set up a router years ago.

  • cutch Jun 28, 2009

    I cannot even get that far with the username and password as it takes me to an old router setting. I have tried all of the things that you suggest

    I need to remove that setting to attempt to get the IP address to recognize the DSN-1100.

    This service is of no help without the capability to speak to someone on the phone.

Hello there, I'm sure the other people who have attempted to help you have no experience with a NAS on a network... However I have work with NAS arrays many times...

The NAS will have a configuration page similar to the router you may have had in the past. Check on the page you are looking at to see if it has the model number listed anywhere. Almost always on these web interface log-in pages it has this information so you can verify you are logging into the correct device.

If you're router is no longer in your network setup then it shouldn't be able to pull the page from the previous router up, aside from one situation. That situation would be where the page is somehow cached, to verify this is not the case, go to the page you spoke of before (192.168.1.1 I believe?) and hit CTRL+F5 on your keyboard, this refreshes the page and clears the cache for that address.

If the page still comes back then you know you are connected to an actual device somewhere on your network and if the router is not even plugged in then it must be either the NAS or another D-Link device (the page does say at least D-Link on it correct?)

Usually there is no phone support with this service but I will be glad to help you over the phone. I don't think it will even let me post my phone number here in my answer, but go to my website timgrayson.net and it's listed right at the top. I will not charge you anything additional to talk to me =). If we can't get it figured out over the phone then something is definitely seriously wrong.

Thanks much,

Tim

First of all ... if ur usuing any antivirus software... disable all firewall options.....
Also electrical interference could be blocking the signal from that particular router.. so make sure ur router is free of all such interference....
and also You may have manually assigned the IP address, but you might not havet specified any gateway or DNS addresses. Either turn DHCP back on, or specify the gateway and DNS addresses at 192.168.1.1, and it'll start working again.
to turn dhcp on

> Control Center -> YaST2 modules -> Network Devices
> -> Network Card -> (enter
> root password) -> Change (assuming you have a
> network card setup already) ->
> Edit -> Automatic address setup (via DHCP). This
> should also take care of
> making it automatic at boot

and if ur using windows.......

  • Go to the Windows Control Panel (Start\Control Panel)
  • Select "Network Connections"
  • Right-click on the desired network adapter and select "Properties". (LAN) Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and select Properties Select or verify "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" is selected
    Note: If the radio button Obtain an IP address automatically is active, as in the image above, your computer is configured to use DHCP.
    This specific adapter is now set for DHCP. Note that this change will only need to be made to your hard-wired-ethernet adapter. Other adapters listed in this section (1394 firewire adapters, loopback adapters, etc.) may be ignored. If you have problems determining which adapter is appropriate, contact the ur service provider......

    and also in ur browser... if ur using internet explorer.... open the browser, go to file on the menu bar..... see if workoffline is diabled.... if not disable it....


    if even after all the above procedures ur router still doesnt connect....... contact ur service provider...... there is nothing more u cud do.....
    thank you have a nice day and good wishes.....

    if u felt i spent my time to help u out... kindly rate my service.... shud u have any queries regarding any of the above methods leave a comment without rating me.... if u rate me bad.. i wudnt be able to contact u again.....

      your obviously not following the guides, No idea what your doing wrong based on one sentence, go over the steps to set it up.

    • Ekse Jun 28, 2009

      the dsn should be set to that ip address, so you basically don't need the router in the between, connect it directly to your computer for now with the right kind of network cable, may or may not require a special cord when connecting directly.

      then set your computers ip to 192.168.1.5 for example.

      Now try opening 192.168.1.1 it should take you to the dsn instead of the router.




    • Ekse Jun 28, 2009

      well you didn't read the documents

      Username: Admin
      Password: Admin

      Its same kind of login page as in a router.




    • Ekse Jun 28, 2009

      Please read page 16 on your software guide.

    • Ekse Jun 28, 2009

      A fellow expert told me to relay this message to you:


      You needs a crossover cable if you are connecting directly to the unit's
      management port without using a router or hub. It's on page 22 in the
      manual, section 3.5.

      Also if you are connected wirelessly, turn your wireless internet off for now, you may be getting the wireless router from 192.168.1.1?

    I have an inspiron E1505 and i am trying to connect to my network to get rid of viruses. I am trying to connect using Intel ProSet/Wireless, but I am still not able to connect. Any suggestions?


    Hi
    Need to know when you try to search the network in the intel proset , does it find the network name or not . ie. does it see your wireless connection.

    Alternatively you can use the following link for troubleshooting

    Just got new modem and router, main PC on home


    Right-click the network connection and click REPAIR, see if that resolves.
    If you are getting a Valid IP address (192.168.x.x) then that should help. If you are getting a (169.254.x.x) APIPA address, then you are not getting network connectivity. That may involve the Wireless Security Key, or the security protocol (If using WPA the card in a 1100 may not support that protocol)

    Try a new power supply. It could be putting out too little voltage. Or take it to a tech that can check the power output for you. .
