My client has a small office network: 5 pcs (4 wireless laptops; 1 wired desktop) and a NAS backup/storage unit (Buffalo TerraStation).  His ISP has sent him a new router (BT Business Broadband - 2Wire router).  All 5 pcs can access the internet and share files and print jobs with the new router, but no one can now see the NAS.

All the pcs have dynamic ip addresses (  The NAS has a static address (  I cannot access the NAS at all over the network.

I'm pretty good at fixing pcs and scraping virii off customers' hdd's, but commercial networking is not my forte..
How can I make the NAS available to the pcs on this network?
