I could upgrade to a Gbit switch or router if I have to, but I want to understand how that will solve the problem before I spend more money, because in theory it should work perfectly well (though slowly) with a 100Mbit device, but currently isn't working whatsoever. What do I need to check on my existing router to confirm that it is configured correctly or otherwise for the NAS?
Assuming it is a router, you could either replace it, or add a gigabit ethernet switch. What router model do you have?
