I have a Synology DS418 4 bay NAS. I just purchased it. It will not connect to my network. I assume the NAS is looking for some DHCP server from which to get an IP address. I only have static ip’s. No DHCP server.
I have searched the internet looking for help to solve this problem . I cannot seem to find relevant posts describing solutions.

I assume the DS418 has an address assigned to it from the factory . If I knew this address and subnet mask is built in then I imagine I could configure my laptop with this information and connect to the DS418?

My question: How do I assign a static ip address to this DS418 so I can start using it?
