I just recently changed from Vodafone VDSL to Spark VDSL.

 

I have a Synology Diskstation DS212j which connects to my ISP router via ethernet cable.

 

I have connected the Diskstation to a LAN port in new Spark router, but I have lost internet connectivity for the Diskstation. I'm guessing it has something to do with the router IP address changing from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254, but am not sure how to rectify in either router or Diskstation settings?

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

Is the disk station set by DHCP or have you assigned a static ip, if the later change the optics in the network page of disk stations gui to match those s of the spark router

im guessing the disk station is probably looking for the gateway as its DNS server hence no internet.

Thanks, but I'm probably not techie enough to understand how to change the optics in the network page.

 

Under the network page on Diskstation, the default gateway is shown as 192.168.1.1

 

Under the default gateway is an option to manually configure DNS server - it was set to 192.168.1.1 and I changed to 192.168.1.254 but still no internet.

The Diskstation gateway (to the Internet) should be 192.168.1.254 - this is the Spark router address. The DNS addr of 192.168.1.254 is OK as it points to the Spark device.

 

I always give network LAN devices fixed addresses as that means you always know what address to use to administer them. Personally, I use addresses in the 200 range e.g 192.168.1.200. So I would set the Diskstation to that address. 

 

You then need to check the range of addresses the gateway is allowed to use to keep the addresses below 200 so as not get duplicates. 

 

See how you go.

Thanks, even though I didn't really know what I was doing, you gave me enough help to get the internet up and running. Cheers!
