Cannot detect DS212j - Help!

Postby starilisac » Wed Sep 12, 2012 7:13 am

Dear all,

I have tried unsuccessfully to setup the DS212j since yesterday.

My desktop PC and laptop cannot detect it at all through the synology assistant. The only way they can detect it is to boot in safe mode and connect it directly via a LAN cable. at that point, I was able to install DSM 4.1

After that, i cannot detect it at all through wireless or ethernet. strangely though, my iphone sees it on the ds finder application, but cannot connect to it.

I disabled the firewall, antivirus software. OS is Win7 64bit.
I am using a huawei hg8245 router to which the ds212j is connected.

please help with any ideas.

solved!

router had some ports set to bridge mode. moving the synology to a different oirt resolved the issue.
