I'm trying to install the NFS app, but I get the error message 'Unknown Error'. When I try to update the firmware I get the error message 'Connection to server hung'. I've had the NAS326 for less than a week. Not sure what I'm supposed to do.

    Many thanks for that. It's solved the problem. I've set the DNS to 8.8.8.8 and I'm now able to check on the firmware update and download apps.

    Do you have evidence that the NAS can reach the internet?

    What's the best way to check? There is a LAN cable installed and I can connect to it on my local network.

    Just a quick update. I've configured UPnP port mapping on the NAS and confirmed that the router is set up to allow UPnP. The port mappings are visible on the router UPnP client list. I'm not able to add any apps to the device or update the firmware. When the device was first installed I was able to update the firmware.

    What's the best way to check?

    There is a diagnostics tab somewhere near the TCP/IP settings in the webinterface. There you can try to ping google.com.

    Alternatively you can enable the ssh server, login over ssh and ping from the commandline.

    I'm not able to add any apps to the device or update the firmware.

    That's another pointer something is wrong. In most cases this caused by a fixed IP address in combination with a wrong default gateway and/or dns.

    For the TCP/IP general settings I've set up a manual IP address for the DNS server. Within the network interface for LAN1 I've configured the Ipv4 manually. Is that the best approach? I'm not sure what the gateway IP address should be for the Ipv4 configuration.

    The address of your router.

    Is that the best approach?

    Don't know. The use of DHCP is normally easier, but a fixed IP has also it's advantaged.

    The NFS app download gets to 25% and then fails with an unknown error. I'm still not able to access the server to check on a firmware update.

    I have NAS326 on hand, and it can download without problem, maybe you can try with google DNS and try again.
