RAIDar shows ReadyNAS IP is 192.168.168.168 and cannot access NAS, why? and how to fix?

This may happen when ReadyNAS is configured to obtain IP address from DHCP server, but DHCP server does not provide IP when ReadyNAS request for IP address. When this happen, correct DHCP server problem, etc. And wait for a while or until ReadyNAS obtain correct IP address from Server. You can also unplug and then plug ethernet cable to force re-initialize network.

This may happen in below situations for examples.

  • After power outage, DHCP server's boot process takes longer than ReadyNAS.
  • DHCP lease period expired while DHCP server die.
  • Click “renew” button in 'Ethernet' tab under 'Network' menu of FrontView, while DHCP server die.
