How To Reset IP Address

Postby wmerydith » Thu Mar 12, 2009 9:44 am

I moved my ReadyNAS RND4000 to a new location (my home office). At home my gateway is 10.0.1.1. However my NAS (when I use RAIDar) shows 192.168.0.150 - obviously configure to the gateway at the other location.

While I can see the NAS in RAIDar, I cannot browse to it or get to setup. How can I reset the IP on the NAS to work at my new location?

Re-install the firmware --- it will reset the IP to use DHCP:

How do I re-install the firmware?

You can force a re-installation of the firmware from flash to the disk. This is helpful if you have lost your admin password and want to set it back to default, if errors in your network settings has made it impossible to connect to the ReadyNAS, or if you suspect that the operating system on your disk may somehow be corrupt. The firmware re-installation process will not touch your data volume.

Here are the steps:

1. Power down the ReadyNAS.
2. Locate the reset pinhole.
- a. ReadyNAS 600/X6: the pinhole is on the back in the lower left corner.
- b. ReadyNAS 1000S/1100: the pinhole is in the front.
- c. ReadyNAS NV/NV+/Duo: the pinhole is next to the USB port in the back.
3. Get a straightened paper clip and depress the hidden switch in the pinhole while the power is off, and then power on the ReadyNAS, keeping the switch depressed for about 5 secs.
4. You will see the drive LEDs in the front blink once. Release the switch at immediately. Do not wait for the 2nd blink which will cause the ReadyNAS to reset itself to factory default and wiping out your data. If you see the LED flash a 2nd time, turn off the power immediately from the back.

if you have a laptop or computer you can manually configure the ip for, you can temporarily set it (the laptop/desktop) to 192.168.0.151 and then you should be able to re-connect to the nas, change the ip, then reset your computer.

Then you can avoid doing the firmware re-install.

ReadyNas Pro
tried teaming the NICS - lost all connectivity

Power down
Power on whilst holding in the reset switch (on back near usb port) with a paper clip
Hold this in until display reads Boot Menu
Select Reinstall OS
Press the reset switch with the paper clip (once)
>> Wait about 20 secs for this to take effect
This will not overwrite your settings or affect data - it will reset your nic settings, default the password (admin/netgear1), and set the ip to 192.168.168.168 unless you've got a dhcp server about.
Raidar will then let you find the unit and reconfig.
