Question about Computers & Internet
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.

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.......
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.....
