In this series of video’s we take a look at how you perform the basic setup and configuration of a Synology, Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. This series of videos was created to try and offer a reference point to assist you in the setup of your own NAS.
For this video we try to explain why you should use a static IP address rather than a dynamic IP address. We then show you how to adjust the DHCP address pool on a Synology RT1900ac Router. This will allow you to incorporate static IP addresses into your home network.
Finally, we look at the Network settings that need to be adjusted on a Synology NAS so that the NAS can use a static IP address.
