I recently change my router from a tp-link to a sonicwall, the sonicwall is blocking my nas drive from getting on the network. I’ve seen online complains about this but did not find offering a solution.
 
The router is a tz-210

did your network change? i.e. 192.168.0.x to 192.168.1.x? you will have to change the network back to what it was before until you reconfigure your NAS.. as a work around change your netmask from 255.255.255.0 to 255.255.0.0 and then you can access the nas and then change its network settings.

This is even if it got its ip from DHCP?

Is there a way to do the changes by connecting  directly to the drive? (Changing the network will be a big mass)
