DGND3700v2 and a Synology NAS server

Hello,

My name is Adam and I need some help. At the bottom is a TLDR to sum this up. Thanks for your patience. 😄

I used to have Netgear router/modem combo provided from Cox Cable (specifically the Northern Virginia Cox Cable). I believe it was a CGd3000 model router (I cannot confirm that at this time). I bought a Synology Diskstation 214se and was able to stream video from the device with ease. The router, my Xbox 360 and Play Station 3 could find the 214se with no hassle and I could watch whatever I wanted.

That router died a silent death in the middle of the night and I was given a new modern/router combo from Cox Cable a Cisco 3825. While I could navigate to the 214se via HTTP my devices could no longer stream video.

I took to the internet and found out that the Cisco 3825 doesn't get along well with synology things. SO I did some more research and found the pleasant and compatible Netgear DGND3700v2. At first I was able to see the 214se but now I can't and thats the problem. I can't find my 214se any way. Under the Netgear WebGUI and my devices (both sucessfully connected to the network) cannot find my 214se at all. On the from of the 214se I have all the appropriate greenlights and at the back of the modem that tell me there is at least a layer 2 connection but no progress beyond that. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Wireless isolation feature on router GUI if wired and wireless communication issues

Also check gateway ip in the NAS setting is correct

Re: DGND3700v2 and a Synology NAS server

First of all thank you for the quick response, but almost as soon as I posted it a thought crossed my mind. When I was able to find the Diskstation my Netgear router had a 192.168 network address. BUT it had to change that address when it found that the Cisco 3825 router/modem all read had those addresses locked up.

SO what I did was connect my 214se back to the cisco and I was able to navigate back to it. SO NOW I am going to change the IP on the 214se to match the Netgear DGND3700v2 network range and hopefully find it that way.

Figured it out. I was over thinking the problem. I got it all figured out.
