How to assign an internal IP address on Netgear router?

Can someone provide directions or refer me to a location where I can figure out how to assign an internal IP address in my home network on the B90-755025-15 Netgear router?  I have a headless storage device that I would like to use.


Thanks in advance.

I dread making the same mistake twice, and am thinking that I should set the NAS to have a static IP address, and in the network configuration on the NAS, set the IP address, subnet mask, DNS and gateway to sa you described in your response.

 

Having done this, are there any settings that I'll need to adjust in the Netgear router?

 

Thanks in advance,

If you do plan on accessing your NAS from outside of your home (from the internet), you should be good to go. If you need outside access then you will have to forward the appropriate ports. The ports required depend on what services you plan on making available and should be explained in the directions for your server software.

Any device with it's networking set to defaults should get an address automatically. The only reasons your NAS (Network Attached Storage) would not get an address automatically would be if the DHCP server on the 7550 has been disabled or DHCP on the NAS has been disabled or there is a physical problem with the RJ45 ports on either device or a defective Ethernet cable.

 

If what you are trying to do is set your NAS to have a static IP address, in the network configuration on the NAS, set the IP address to 192.168.1.2 and the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 and the addresses for the DNS and Gateway (if required) should be 192.168.1.254

Thank you for your response.  A year ago I successfully put an operating system on the network storage device (Scaleo SS4200) and everything worked, until I turned the machine off, then back on.  After that the router could no longer see the storage device.  Through research (on Wegotserved.com) I learned that for this box and operating system I needed to assign a static IP to the network storage device.  In my trouble shooting efforts I broke the WHS installation and went through a process of reinstalling the operating system (WHS2003) onto the home storage device.

 

I dread making the same mistake twice, and am thinking that I should set the NAS to have a static IP address, and in the network configuration on the NAS, set the IP address, subnet mask, DNS and gateway to sa you described in your response.

 

Having done this, are there any settings that I'll need to adjust in the Netgear router?

 

Thanks in advance,

Sorry the above post should have read:

Glad to be of assistance. Be sure to stop back if you have any other questions.
