I wanted to get email notifications and applied the settings and it said I needed a DNS address set up. Went into Network and set up the DNS Address Field and now I can not get onto the NAS from any PC and I am trying to connect Ethernet cord directly to a PC and still can not connect. Can't ping it.

Help! :-)

Sounds like you set a fixed IP address for the box instead of
"setting up" a DNS for your mail.
Can you remember, which IP address you entered?
If yes, put your PC into the same IP subnet and then connect
to the box to revert your changes.
If not, you will need a lot of patience or a reset of the box.
You then either use a "discovery" application, which pings all
the available IP addresses (you need a LOT of patience for that)
or you reset the box to factory defaults. Read the manual for that.

Please do not use private mail (PN/M) to ask questions. Use the proper forum instead. (me)

If there is no verified backup of a dataset, the dataset, by definition, is unimportant. (c't 2012)

RAID (no matter which level) never ever substitutes a backup. (me)
