Post subject:  How do I change a fixed IP-address after having moved?

I've moved from Mozambique to the Netherlands. NAS Navigator2 does not connect to the NAS with previous (Mozambique) fixed IP address: http://192.168.1.80/

Current modem router IP address is: http://192.168.178.1

I've tried to connect via Properties with new "Use DHCP" and "Renew IP address" or not "Use DHCP" and provide new fixed IP address.

But continue to get: name of NAS with exclamation mark and drive connection error message.

Could you advice me how to resolve this?

Greetings, Marco.

Change the IP of the router to 192.168.1.1. Configure the router to provide
DHCP service.
Restart the network on your PC, to force a new IP address for the PC.
Check the IP address to be within 192.168.1.x (and NOT being 192.168.1.80).
Connect to the LS and switch from fixed IP to DHCP.
Shutdown the LS.
Configure router back to its IP 192.168.178.1.
Restart the network on your PC, to force a new IP address for the PC.
Check the IP address to be within 192.168.178.x.
Start the LS and connect.
