How to find my NAS on my AT&T fiber LAN network?
For the last decade before I switched to AT&T Fiber, I used a QNAP NAS box over ethernet that I could always find on the local network by opening a browser and going to the hostname: NAS1.local:8080. If I used an IP scanner app it would always be the IP address closest to the router by pingtime.
I just started as a customer at AT&T and attached the same NASbox by ethernet again to AT&T's router, & I haven't been able to find the NAS on my network, getting the timeout error "The server at nas1.local is taking too long to respond." I then tried my ip scanner and see it listed with the hostname "nas1.attlocal.net" but going there gives the same error message. The pingtime is over 2000ms, too.
So I've tried variations like: NAS1.attlocal.net:8080 & NAS1.attlocal:8080 to no avail. Going directly to the NAS's ip address doesn't help either.
I even tried seaching the QNAP document site, but my model is very old and unsupported, apparently. Anyone have any ideas on how to find it?
