Synology nas ip address
English

Looking for some help.  I only know a smidgen about networking so any replies need to be at a basic level  Smile

 

I had to reboot my modem to reconnect to the Internet and now my NAS has a new ip address.  I have managed to guess it but it now means I have change xbmc settings on my ATV2.  This is a big chore and I'd like to try and prevent it from happening again, as it's not the first time it's happened.  

 

I suspect the NAS has dynamic ip address and then the modem has reassigned it a new one, perhaps?  If that is the problem is there a way of assigning it a static ip?  is that done from the modem or in NAS? It's a Thompson Gateway from plusnet modem and DS212j running DSM 4.0

 

Thanks very much

XBMC needs to know the IP address of your NAS? That's daft.

I connect via smb (I think) so to access the movie folder it needs to know the network address and folder name.  I may not be using the correct terminology.

RE: Synology nas ip address

This sounds like what u need to connect via hostname rather than ip
