I installed a seagate NAS 220 but it doesn't work in my network.
Is it possible that is due to zywall dhcp?
Or is the nas  broken?

Is that the mac address of the NIC within the NAS?  I looked it up on http://www.coffer.com/mac_find and it indicates it's a Maxtor.  That's strange that a cert is involved with assigning an IP.  Have you tried to just give it a static one?

very very very strange!
It's a seagate NAS and it's impossible to give it a static ip
because it has not any interface,
it connects itself to network only with dhcp and
it's possible view it only when it is online
with dhcp.
the message "number 3" appears every 1 minutes on log.

part of the mac address is particular to a vendor.  it's possible that seagate purchased this product from maxtor and are reselling it.

well, DHCP is fairly rudimentary.  If the NAS won't get an IP address, then there's not much to do.  One thing to try first, confirm the MAC on the NAS and setup a DHCP reservation on your Zywall for the NAS.
