Synology NAS - Internet Access
I recently added a Synology NAS box to my network. I have set up the box with a static IP from my eero and the box to use DHCP to pull this down.
I can access the box from my wifi network without issue. However, it seems that the Synology box is unable to access the internet. For reference the specific error message I receive is: "Connection failed. Please check your Internet connection." I have found similar threads indicating that the Synology, however my issue does not seem to be addressed by these:
Why is your LAN 1 configuration blurred out in the picture? Is LAN 1 also connected to the network?
I have two Synology boxes and a QNAP (never again) that I just added. They both work fine even with all the reconfigurations I've done on my network lately. Ok you said that you made an IP reservation for the NAS box in Eero, but is your IP setting on the NAS set to static or DHCP?
Quick report back. This problem seems to have solved itself. I had the NAS off for a week or so while I was working on other things, and through no modifications to the box or network, connectivity has now been restored. My guess at this point is that it was a consequence of changing ports and assigning an IP incorrectly at some point. But... at least were up and running. Thanks all for the thoughts and ideas!
