Unable to connect to Synology NAS on Wi-Fi despite being able to ping?
Wondering if anyone can help, as this problem is driving me a bit mad and I can't seem to find the issue. I have also posted this in the Eero subreddit, but despite the very helpful advice from a redditor, I'm still at a loss.
TL/DR: I am unable to connect to my Synology NAS (DS920+ running DSM 7.1.1-42962 Update 4) via my MacBook Pro when the laptop is on wifi, but it's fine when wired via ethernet. Here is my set up in ascending connections:
ZTE 5G Modem in Bridge Mode>Eero Router>Netgear 4 port switcher>Synology NAS
The NAS is connect via ethernet and DHCP with an address of 192.168.7.150.
The laptop is connected via Wifi and DHCP with an address of 192.168.7.151.
I can see the MAC addresses on both the Eero app and relative devices.
I have ports 5000/5001 opened on the NAS via UPnP which are showing as OK when tested.
When I connect my laptop to the switcher, I can connect to the NAS perfectly fine. I can also connect to the NAS via Quickconnect. When I try and load 192.168.7.150:5000 in a browser (have tried both Safari and Chrome), something starts to load, but nothing appears.
I can also ping the IP from Terminal and get a response.
I did think there might an issue between the switcher and the Eero, although I have just replaced the switcher to check if the old switcher caused an issue, but this has not solved things.
I have also hard reset the Eero network (the main puck and two others) but this did not help.
My question is - is there something on the NAS or Eeros' settings which I have missed that would cause a block between wifi and ethernet based devices?
I realise this might not be a specific Synology issue, but having gone through everything with Synology, they suggested the cause might lie with Eero. This only started happening a few weeks ago, so maybe an update shifted something along the way?
Thanks in advance!
If you are unable to connect to your Synology NAS on Wi-Fi despite being able to ping, it may be due to a network configuration issue. Check if the NAS is on the same network segment as your device and if the firewall settings allow access to the NAS. Also, try accessing the NAS using its IP address instead of the hostname.
